For details of my difficult children current mental health you guys can look at my other post: Attention Seeking.. Cutting. My question now is... I just found out about the lady who does my difficult child's medication management she is a: MSN, APRN, BC: Master's of Science in Nursing Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Board Certified Is this lady qualified to be managing my daughters medications? I have been told she cannot diagnose. My difficult child is in states care: she is seeing a therapist every other week (will be bumped up to weekly till she gets her cutting under control), she also sees this medication management lady once a month for 20mins. Ive heard good things about the medication management lady but Im not sure if she is qualified to treat my daughter. She is in the process of getting her degree in Psychiatry. Im wondering should my difficult child be seeing a Psychiatrist instead of an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse.
