    I am currently in a PNP program. I started after having 4 years of acute care peds experience and by the time i'm done i will have 7 1/2 yrs of experience. Looking ahead, i have looked up entry level PNP positions to see how the job market is. Some positions will take NP new grads but require 2-5 yrs of pediatric RN experience in a particular area, critical care, endocrine, GI, etc. I am not discouraging anyone....i think its great you know exactly what you want to do out of nursing school.

Like someone else mentioned, if u start right away by the time your done you will have about 2 yrs of experience under your belt, if u work during grad school.
