Endo nurse to NP?

  1. I have a great opportunity to work in Endo at an awesome hospital and it sounds so good but I plan on getting my NP possibly a doctorate as well. Will working in Endo limit me once I get my DNP? Do I need better work experience?

    There's no straightforward answer to your question. What is it about being an endoscopy nurse that you think is so awesome? is it the schedule? is it an interest in GI Medicine? what kind of an NP do you want to be? Do you see yourself in primary care as an NP? Would a nurse working in endoscopy allow for a schedule flexible enough for the gruelling clinical rotation schedule NP school requires? if you're interested in a doctorate, will it be DNP or PhD?
