Hell, I am a BSN RN, CRRN. I am currently in my second semester in Grad school to become a FNP. I want to know about the FNP certifications. First is one considered better than the other? Next, is there things that can be done with one that the other can not do? Also, is one easier than the other? Lastly, should I keep my CRRN certification up? My nurse manager asked me to attend some CE classes for my CRRN cert. but I told her I graduated before it will come due. She asked me, what do you mean by this. I guess she had the impression that i was getting my master degree as a FNP for the pure joy and was going to continure being a RN. But seriously, is there any reason i should keep it up. It really has not done me any good as to date. It did not get me a raise, it did not get me into the graduate school of choose, it does not keep me from getting pulled to other departments when i am the hospitals only CRRN. Thanks for you advise.
