Opinions and stories, please:
I am a fairly new RN, just about three years now. I started on Med-Surg and went to the ED just about a year ago. I have a BSN and graduated in 2010. I started in healthcare as an acupuncturist, earning a Master of Acupuncture degree in 2002. I was in private practice up until a year ago.
For a number of reasons, I have decided to go back to school to become a nurse practitioner. I think I would also be able to practice acupuncture under my acupuncture license as a nurse practitioner, and that is what I am going for; to be able to make these two jobs into one so that I am not so fragmented in my professional life.
Would like to know if any of you either are LAc/RNs or know of any and how that's working out for them. Think there might be a future in this?
