Do you regret being a nurse practitioner?

    After working as a nurse for four years, I went to NP school. Most of my RN experience was in psych, and I thought about becoming a psych NP , but with the advice of peers, decided to become an FNP, since I was told it would be a more useful, fulfilling, and marketable degree. I felt fortunate when I received a job offer two months after graduation. There are so many NP 's here in Boston, and the job market is competitive! I stayed at my first job for 11 months, during which time I became miserable and burnt out. I took a couple months off and just started a new job, but I don't feel confident that I'll be happy.

    I'm applying to PhD programs right now. For awhile, I've known that I'd like to teach and do research. I now wish that I'd just stayed an RN and proceeded with the PhD . The NP program cost a lot, and now I'm paying it off! Colleagues have given me positive feedback on my work, but I have yet to feel good about the work I've done, or happy as an NP .

    I'm wondering if there are other NP 's, especially newer NP 's, who feel the same way?
