Don’t Have Time?

Nurses are not only busy, but also work erratic hours that aren’t always conducive to studying and attending classes. So what are your options?

See if your local university offers online classes in addition to or in place of traditional classroom time. Or you can look into the online universities that are becoming more popular. There are credible online programs out there, but be sure to do your due diligence. Make sure that the university you’re looking into will be recognized so you don’t end up throwing your time and resources down the tubes.

Is the Salary Good?

As with salaries in all jobs and professions, salaries for Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners can vary wildly between geographic regions, even within a state itself.

According to PayScale.com, national data for salaries as of September 17, 2010, show an average range of $71,463 to $91,322, with bonuses from $1,008 to $6,878. In New York City, the highest paying city according to PayScale, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners could expect to make $70,194 to 87,083, while in Nashville, Tenn., they could expect anywhere from $45,000 to $76,841.

What is the highest paying city? Phoenix, Ariz. Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners in Phoenix can see salaries starting at $94,000 up to $120,000.

So, is going back to school in your future?
