    No, I didn't get a confirmation after I selected a time.

    It’s possible they have different dates for the different tracks and haven’t sent out invites for the other specialties yet. They are doing the psych track interviews next week.

    Report process

    I work in a 25 bed locked acute unit. We have a group report at the start of the shift with all the oncoming nurses/techs and charge RN. The charge RN goes over the highlights of the unit, any behavioral issues etc to be aware of, upcoming discharges, new admits, safety issues, then we all get nurse to nurse report on our patients from the off-going nurse.

    University of Minnesota - DNP 2020

    A few of my co-workers are in the PMHNP program, and they said they received interview invites in December, for both December and January interview dates (I believe you sign up for a date & time that works for you). They received decisions in February.
  6. I took it recently and it wasn't too bad. There were a few pretty detailed questions that weren't covered in the book, but oh well, I still passed. I used the mometrix book posted above as well as the ANCC study guide for the exam. I mainly just skimmed those and did a bunch of practice exams to study.

    Staffing Ratios

    We definitely know how spoiled we are. We are hiring! They provide relocation assistance as well.

    Staffing Ratios

    I work for a private, not for profit hospital on a locked, acute psych unit and our ratios are almost always 1:3. Sometimes we are 1:4 if we are short but have never gone higher than that. Mood disorders, geri/med psych, and our adolescent psych inpatient units have the same ratios. I just can't imagine how you would be able to safely care for 10-15 patients per 1 nurse 😕

    Do you think your summer grades will bring you up to a 3.0? I think they do require that as a minimum, but you could email admissions and ask. If you have extenuating circumstances and your prerequisite grades are good, they may be willing to make an exception.

    Jayleen, a 3.5 is fine. What is your overall. Mercer does not just look at GPA. They look at the whole package of what makes you, YOU. They place a lot of emphasis on the essay. You can send in letters of recommendation and a resume of volunteer activities/life experience as well. They will accept supporting materials you think will bolster your application. I am not applying for fall, I will be a senior there in the fall. I am willing to answer any questions you have.

    MSW to PMHNP/FNP (dangerous ideas!)

    The argument I have always heard is that the entirety of a pmhnp clinical hours are spent in psych, vs a PA's more generalist training.

    MSW to PMHNP/FNP (dangerous ideas!)

    Really? (Genuinely curious, not being sassy!) All of the PA's I have spoken to have told me if you want to do psych, go for NP over PA. Care to elaborate?
