Im currently in a MSN program and want to pursue PMHNP over anything else. However, when I try to look up online what the pay range is in AK it says $40,000- $60,000 annually and I was wondering if anyone can confirm. Currently I make almost twice that as an ER nurse. I really want to pursue advance practice but not if I am going to make less. Anyway, if anyone can weigh in on expected pay for AK that would be great.
