Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner: Are these accurate credentials?
Thank you for taking a look at my question. My wife has been seeing what she refers to as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner because she likes the person and does not feel an MD is necessary. I come from a family where we believe you try to find the best credentialed doctors and then go from there. I realize there can be different schools of thought on this. Anyway! I found the nurses card and it says “RN, NP” and beneath that is says “Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner”. I have done some preliminary research and it seems a psychiatric nurse practitioner has the initials “PMHNP”. Is this correct? Should I ask her nurse some questions? Does anything here seem strange? Thanks!
