Any NPs here specialize in pain management?

    Hi ALL!
    I'm still looking at the "right" track to follow i.e. FNP vs CRNA. I've posted some Qs on CRNA forum, and got some interesting responses. Are any of you specialize in pain management in addition to your "normal" scope. This is what I realy want to do, but I don't to limit myself education-wise. If any of you practicing along those lines, or may be in the team with PM&R, or Anesthesiology doc, please share some info. I'm particularly interested in the scope of practice of FNP ( I know diff States Laws),but in general. Dx and Tx pain syndroms (I don't mean with an Rx)...things like injecting trigger points with local anasthetics, lidocain blocks, nerve blocks etc. From what I understand FNP is a generic track ppl do, and specialize in what they want.
    Any insight is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I got a job offer with a pain mgmt clinic. Basically you can do whatever the doc wants you to as a FNP in missouri for the most part (outpatient minor procedures).

    You'll make more $$$ as CRNA unless you have special circumstances as FNP. They're both great fields to be in...
