I am getting my BSN from university of pittsburgh, and then I will get my BSN-DNP from university of pittsburgh as well. This school is ranked #8 in the united states overall, so I think I'll be fine, right? It's not really the psych experience Im worried about because I'll work as a psych nurse for 3 years while I am in my graduate program. I am worried that I will be less likely to be hired as a psychiatric nurse practitioner due to my lack of medsurg experience. You know how they always say get 1 year of medsurg experience before doing anything?
