    Just because I have the time to pursue both doesn't mean that I should stay in school longer to get a degree that I don't see myself using. The reason I want to pursue AGACNP as my primary degree is because I have no desire at all for FNP (no babies or kiddos for me please!) , plus I know myself and my end goal is direct, in-patient care and from what I can tell an AGACNP degree is the best option for preparing me for that path.

    There's a multitude of reasons why one might consider leaving the military. FNPs in the Navy have HEAVY clinic hours and that's not at all something I want to be doing for the next 15+ years.

    Thank you for your input!

    shibaowner - I have been interested in their program as well! How did you like it? I can only imagine the stress of having to find your own preceptor, so the fact that they find them for you was probably a huge plus.

    Were your "online" classes streamed lectures from the live class? That would be a good trade-off. I am just afraid of learning via power point slides :/

    Hello there everyone, I am an active duty military nurse who hopes to one day be an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, AGACNP. (In the next 3 years)

    At this time the branch of service I am in does not currently utilize ACNPs, so I have been considering coming back to the civilian sector. However, after reading many of the posts by new grad NPs, I have become very nervous about re-entering the job market, as many new grads seem to not only have immense difficulty finding jobs, but decent salaries.

    Are there any ACNPs out there who can give me an idea of how the market currently is? I am currently on the West Coast in California and don't plan on staying. The program I'm hoping to go to is in Tennessee, and we have family out in Florida, so location is flexible. I know things change depending location, but any information or experiences would be helpful.

    Thank you!
