Hey NPs, has anyone trained to do neuropsych testing? Seems that you need a degree to do this... like a PhD in neuroscience/neuropsychology. Does the APA publish guidance?

I don't think so. Neuropsychologists have a PhD or Psy. D and complete post-doc fellowship or residency in neuropsychology before getting board certified and licensed.

Your best bet is to find places to refer, but the wait time can be long.

Are you interested in Dr Richard Soutar's et al work in clinical neuroscience and Neuro-Biotherapy?  There is a TON of info and research on this approach and I can personally attest to how amazing this is.  I've worked with him and will work with him again if I can get the chance!
