I have been going back and forth on what I want to get my advanced nurse practice degree in and I have finally decided I want it as a Women's Health NP/CNM. I live in Miami, FL and I am looking for an online program that offers this dual option where they help to find the preceptors, are accredited, good reputation and won't break my bank. I have been doing research but I would LOVE feedback from everyone who has done an online program, where you did it, did it prepare you for the practice and are there prospective jobs on the field? Also, what is it the salary expectations and can you have flexibility in scheduling or is it a Monday- Friday operation? Is it truly possible to open up my own clinic in Florida or are their limitations to practicing in Florida. Also, I do not have Labor and delivery experience, I have Tele/Med surge, Cardiac stepdown and NICU. In NICU we do attend all high risk deliveries and c-sections. This is the only field I know I would enjoy. I mean I want to deliver babies and bring life into the world. Do CNM get many deliveries to do, limitations etc? I know it's a lot of questions but I want to apply ASAP to get into school.
HELP and thanks so much... Do you hear my desperation???
