Hi all, I am an RN, BSN and have 2 years med surg experience, I am planning on going for an NP. I am unsure of what type of NP to go for though. I was gearing towards adult NP but recently heard they might be phased out, is this true?? What if you are an adult NP and specialize? Would a family NP be a better choice or any other type??

Not a rumor. Fact.
See post above.
ANCC (American Nurses Credentialing Center) Consensus Model.
"If that were the case is there really that big of a difference an adult NP and a Family NP"
If you don't know the difference in NP specialties, you should not be on this forum.
Family Practice is known as "womb to tomb"/"cradle to grave" when explaining the population focus.
