    Sleep Medicine NP?

    Is anyone a Nurse Practitioner that works in Sleep Medicine? Or has anyone heard of NP's working in this speciality? How is it like? I have an interest in specializing in this field. Is it possible to develop a private practice in this field? TIA

    Mid-school Crisis (PMHNP)

    HeIlo! I am going through a mid-school crisis in my PMHNP program, and wanted your advice. I am in Psychopharm and Psych-patho, and I cannot shrug off the thought of mental illness and psychotropic medications not being concrete concepts for me. I am often reading in my textbooks that there is inconclusive evidence to a medication's proven efficacy on a disorder, and there is a large risk for misdiagnosing due to overlap of symptoms. I am torn whether these psychiatric disorders are part of the natural process of a person actually coping/developing, and if psychotropics cause more harm than good, and if there really is a true difference between placebo and medication. I understand the need for psychotropics in acute, severe situations to manage a patient, but I guess I am more skeptical about outpatient treatment in more stable patients. I think I want to continue in this program, but it's difficult with these thoughts I have. Any advice? TIA!

    PMHNP student - Meds vs Therapy

    I am a PMHNP-student, and just began clinical preceptorship in a outpatient clinic, mainly seeing high-functioning adult patients dealing with MDD, GAD, schizo, Bipolar..I am starting to notice the disparity of the prescribing of meds vs. the recommendation/provision of therapy to high-functioning patients, and it kinda bothers me, as I know therapy in conjunction with meds is vital. But maybe this could be specific to the practice of the PMHNP who is doing outpatient. And it may also be because that I have just started courses in psychopharm and psych/mental health patho, and so maybe I will have a better sense of things once I complete these courses. Any advice for this mentality that I am having? misc. question -What is the differences with outpatient adult psych, and C/L, neuropsychiatry, or child psych? I am interested in these areas too. Thank you!

    What are the Best Urgent Care NP Residencies?

    Thanks for your reply, however, this is for RN, not NP, residencies which I am looking for.
  7. I am a current FNP student, and would like to enter a NP residency after I graduate before I work independently. What are your recommendations for a NP residency, especially in Urgent Care? I live in Southern California, but am willing to relocate if necessary. Thanks!
  8. I was wondering if there are any alumni or current students, or anyone that has knowledge about the school that can give their advice and experience on the program there!
