Yeah it was pretty bad. It was in the South where there were 2 PA schools in the area and 1 NP school, so the competition was pretty fierce. What made matters worse was the psychiatry facility I worked for was mostly hiring PAs in psychiatry and didn't think much about me having a psych certification as an NP, it was outpatient and I was actually replacing a PA. When I got my supervision agreement they wrote for me they initially wrote FNP as my credentials, in fact I had a psychiatrist ask if I could even prescribe medication on an interview!
I now am about to start a new position making $70 per hour, seeing 1 patient an hour (doing med management and therapy) much better arrangement!
