    I am currently enrolled in the University of South Alabama's BSN-DNP program. My specialty is Advanced Emergency NP Dual Role (FNP/ACNP) with a cardiovascular sub-specialty. This program is online and requires travel to Mobile, AL once a year. I like it so far. It is VERY challenging and not easy by any means. I just had to do extensive research on the DNP issue and it is NOT a requirement as of yet. As stated earlier, academia supports this and have many "reasons" why a nurse should pursue this route, but state boards of nursing still support the MSN as entry into APN. I don't see this changing anytime soon. With that said, it was a personal decision for me to pursue the DNP as the best route for me. Best of luck to you!!
