Today at work we were discussing job outlooks for NPs. A coworker said she heard that lately less and less trauma centers are willing to hire NPs, regardless or whether the APRN holds a masters or doctorate degree. I just wanted to check in with you all concerning the validity of this statement. I am interested in pursuing my AGACNP and would like to practice in an ICU setting - possibly in a trauma center. Have you all ever heard of AGACNPs having difficulty finding employment in certain types of facilities? Is this field becoming overly populated causing increased competition? Are less and less hospitals hiring Acute Care NPs? I would love to hear everyone's thoughts! Thanks in advance!
