    working as an NP while obtaining a specialty certification

    thanks, 203bravo. Do you have 10 hour work days and work 4 days a week?
  2. Any practicing NPs here who have decided to get an additional certification while working? Here are some of the examples: 1. Working as an FNP while getting a PMHNP certification 2. Working as an FNP while getting an ACNP certification 3. Working as FNP while getting a Women's health NP certification How did you manage the work that you have while going to school? I'd love to hear your experience. What's your work schedule, school schedule, was your certification through an online program, etc? Thanks in advance

    last year of FNP school but want PMHNP

    Thank you for such a solid advice and for giving me some creative ways on how I can incorporate psych into my clinicals & future practice as an FNP. Yes, I do see some opportunities for NPs (regardless whether they're FNP or PMHNP) to work in psych, but I wouldn't be comfortable doing that as a new FNP. Thanks again, FullGlass!

    FNP jobs with RN schedule: 3-12 hours shifts

    thanks for your comment, Steph. I have thought about working inpatient as an FNP, and a few hospitals here have a year long fellowship/training program for new grads FNP to work inpatient. I think this would be a great option. Good luck on your FNP school!

    last year of FNP school but want PMHNP

    thank you for your comment, umbdude. I am an RN with 15 years experience and a bachelors in psychology. My RN and non-RN experience include the following: inpatient trauma, triage, internship with preschool with developmental disabilities and non-RN work with adult with developmental disabilities, and homehealth. Obviously, no specific psych nursing experience. would my future employers consider these experiences enough?

    last year of FNP school but want PMHNP

    I'd like your non-judgmental advice please I'm on my last year of my DNP FNP program and becoming more and more interested in becoming a PMHNP. My school does not offer PMHNP, so I do not have the option to simply change specialty within the program. My decision is to continue and finish my FNP and get PMHNP post DNP certificate after Any suggestions/thoughts?

    thank you. I think I'll need primary care experience first to work Urgent care, right?

    Looking for post masters PMHNP program ASAP

    thank you for the update. good luck on finding a preceptor and I wish you all the best.
  12. Other than hospital or inpatient, where else can I find an FNP job that has the 3-12 hour shift schedule? I don't mind working every other weekends. Thanks

    PMHNP certificate (very part time)

    just replying to see if anybody has done this. thanks
  15. I plan on getting my PMHNP but will be working full time as an FNP. Do you know of any online/distance learning program that offers it at a very part time pace? Like 1 class a quarter? I don't mind finishing it in 3-4 years. Thanks!

    optimal RN job for FNP student

    I am an RN with 2 years of tele and 7 years of trauma ICU experience. I will be starting school to be an FNP. It seems that ER would be a good work environment for a future NP; however, I do not have an ER experience. Although I am interested I working ER, it's just that some hospitals who do train experienced RNs to transition to ED require that we work full time. Do I just continue to work ICU part time/per diem while in FNP school full time? Do I try to pursue ED? Also, I have 2 children: 7 year old and 4 year old.
