FNP vs Pych NP
 

 For many years there where few psych NP’s and numerous FNP’s filled in the gap  for psych care ; will we not be recognized for attestation?-because we were filling in a huge need to service a very vulnerable and underserved population outside of the family practice arena . I feel we need to be recognized for our service and be able to practice without collaborating  if we meet the 5000 hours of practice and be reimbursed by insurances.
