Any practicing NPs here who have decided to get an additional certification while working?

Here are some of the examples:

1. Working as an FNP while getting a PMHNP certification

2. Working as an FNP while getting an ACNP certification

3. Working as FNP while getting a Women's health NP certification

How did you manage the work that you have while going to school?

I'd love to hear your experience. What's your work schedule, school schedule, was your certification through an online program, etc? Thanks in advance

have a couple of colleagues that are currently obtaining their PMHNP certification while maintaining the current FNP position.  Our clinic is open into the evening hours, this makes it easier to schedule their clinicals. but they have PTO reserved for those times when school/work/family truly gets a bit too hectic to do it all.

thanks, 203bravo. Do you have 10 hour work days and work 4 days a week?
