I was just accepted to a nursing program (yay!) and am totally excited to start in January. My ultimate goal is to work as a nurse practitioner, but I wanted some advice from experienced nurses first. I'm currently working as an MA in a private practice family medicine office. I haven't even stepped foot in a hospital yet, but I feel like I wouldn't want to go back to a private practice office for family medicine. I wanted to get my FNP because I feel like it would offer me the most opportunity, but do you think I would be able to take that with me in a hospital setting?
