Hello. Thank you for reading. I'm considering applying to a psych np program and it is a major decision in my professional life. I've previously worked in inpatient psych (dual diagnosis) but never outpatient. Would anybody be able to comment on what how prevalent threats or violence are in the community health setting? My professional aim is to advance my career and improve my lifestyle. I understand that violence is an ever present risk in psychiatry but from my understanding, the risks are far lower in the outpatient setting. Would love to hear the allnurses community comment on this.

Thanks again.
