ACNP vs FNP: My Summarization of the Great Debate - Page 2Register Today!
- Mar 20 by SabotaiSome hospitals do not hire FNPs for ICU internists. Duke is a primary example of one that does not. I am getting both my ACNP and FNP because I intend to work as a ICU NP, but because you work 6-7 24 hour shifts a month I intend to work elsewhere in an ED or at another clinic.
- Mar 30 by CoolhandHutchThe major issue is not the setting but acuity of the patient. Do primary care/family MDs only practice in the clinic? No, they see patients in the hospital. Do they see patients in the ICU? Typically no. Point is, the consensus model provides that your patients you care for match your formal training..NOT where these patients are physically.
