I went to the nursingschools.com website, and I have been trying to find information about becoming an Emergency Nurse Practitioner. It sounds really exciting to me, and it pays pretty good as far as I know. I am pretty good under stress so that isn't a problem...and I also have been around the ER enough to become familiar to a lot of it
Anyway, my question has to do with the fact that after typing in "emergency NP" in the search box on the website, only one school in Chicago appeared to offer the program. I am pretty sure there are many ER NPs out there who didn't receive their education in Chicago. Am I right or not?
So how does one go about becoming an Emergency Nurse Practitioner? Is there even a program specifically for it besides the Chicago one? Or is it just based on experience?
Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this subject.
