ANP vs FNP vs ACNP for ED?Register Today!
- by ivyleaf Jul 15, '12I am interested in working as an NP in the ED someday and am wondering which degree would make the most sense. I'm not particularly interested in working with children, but I don't want to limit myself job-wise. What do you think makes the most sense? I live in the Boston MA area if that helps. Thanks!

I'm currently working in an ED and I did the FNP.
I feel that the FNP prepared me for the majority of what I see at work.
The other nice thing about the FNP is it leaves your options open to be able to work in most settings.
