Early Career Psychologists

What is an Early Career Psychologist?

An Early Career Psychologist (ECP) is someone who graduated from a doctoral program in psychology and is completing post-doctoral hours or who has been licensed and is practicing within the first five years of being licensed.

Nevada Psychological Association welcomes our newest colleagues!

We are proud to have ECP’s strongly represented on our regional and state boards, and send an ECP to the annual State Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. NPA is committed to supporting the needs of early career psychologists by offering discounts on membership, opportunities to participate in monthly support group meetings, and extends a special welcome to newly licensed psychologists every fall at annual social events, held in both Las Vegas and Reno. We are active in recruiting ECP’s to participate in committees and leadership positions in the state, and offer mentorship opportunities to interested psychologists.
