Another Area of Specialty

  1. 0 As a FNP Im looking to go into acute care as an NP. Do I need additional schooling? Would I need to attend as much schooling since Im already an NP? Anyone encounter a change of specialty and go about it? Any input would be helpful, thanks!

    What area of Acute Care? You could do a post-masters cert and you'd be eligible for ACNP boards.
