I appreciate your perspective but would encourage you to consider that there are multiple perspectives as well that may be valid. I would ask that you consider that there are multiple paths to ultimately becoming a reasonable provider. For example I explained how my SO has been a PMHNP since 2016 and started in telepsych with essentially no support. I would argue that she provides top notch care considering the resources she has to use (her clients are mainly Medicaid in Arizona, most with substance abuse issues, and no access to counseling). Also as I previously explained the New York job didn't make an offer for almost two months after I interviewed. They didn't like the fact that I would be moving without my family. By then I was far along the process for the Seattle job. There was also the fact that my SO said that if I took the New York job I could essentially forget her even coming to see me once per month from Oct to May as she doesn't like the cold.
Of course being a good NP is more than about following algorithms and I'm sure there are excellent MD's who understand that. However, many of the ones that I worked with at least in central Florida were forced to see a "mob" of patients in 15 minute intervals for medication management who were often on multiple benzo's, often combined with opioid medications, muscle relaxants, antipsychotics,, and other medications. At my clinical site patients had to often wait two hours to be seen and we literally had to put them by the elevators because our office was so full. My preceptor didn't take a lunch, and usually worked at least one to two hours after close (and the patients still backed up). If your experience has been better then I'm grateful for that. However, it is difficult to imagine the mental health challenges in the Kissimmee Florida area without being here. Having said that I was mainly asking for help with a specific situation with Pontum (could they legitimately hold my license to task for not starting a job). I did read the contract and there was absolutely nothing about notification terms for quitting. The advice that you gave concerning my other jobs while appreciated was non responsive to my main concern. I really like Mindful and they are one of the leading mental health care providers in the greater Seattle area. I also really like LightHeart (the job I hope to work on Friday and Saturday's). True, the bonus issue is unfortunate, and something of a red flag, but to me it doesn't overcome all of the many other positives (great pay, ability to control who I see and for how long, nice working environment, good office support). Again, to me your response would be like a came to the doctor to ask about a sinus infection and instead you're telling me I need to move to Arizona to live out my final days with TB. If I didn't have the "Pontum" issue having Sunday's and Wednesday off to focus on "lagging/learning" issues from my other jobs would be mostly sufficient. Especially, since I have literally nothing else to do here (in Seattle) besides work, and exercise. I don't mind putting in 100 plus weeks toward my job(s).
