I will be taking the FNP exam through AANP this month. Assuming I pass the AANP, I have considered taking advantage of the ANCC certification via reciprocity which will no longer be offered after Dec 31, 2010. But it is pricey!
Does anyone have any insight/opinion as to whether it is 'worth it' to spend the extra money and keep up with 2 certifications? In my local area, it does not appear to matter who you are certified with, but I'm not sure if it makes a difference in others places of the country (should I ever move), or down the road for education or promotion type purposes for example.
