Hello nurses, I'm new to this site so apologies if this has already been discussed. I'm currently graduating the RN-BSN program and beginning to apply into NP programs. I've been a nurse for 2 years, all in Labor and Delivery. My original plan was to apply into the FNP program, but I've been told that, due to my lack of nursing experience in areas other than OB, I may have a hard time getting in. (My GPA is 3.6). When I've inquired into the WHNP program, I've been told that my experience is great and I should have no troubles. I love women's health, but I am nervous about limiting myself right off the bat. I would be thrilled to do women's health if I knew that I would not have a problem finding a job ...
Another question - can a graduate of a WHNP program go back and do a post-master's certificate in FNP?
Thanks in advance!
