- 0Dec 17, '12 by Nurse PJI am a recent Associate Degree Nursing graduate. As I am planning my next steps in my nursing education I have found myself in a corner with a lot of mixed information. My trouble is deciding wether to persue my DNP or FNP. My goal is to go into private practice in a Women's Health Center that also offers Aesthitic services. Prescription priviledges is a must. Which degree should I persue?
