I am trying to decide which career path to take for an NP degree. In comparing family vs. adult NP, I am considering the following factors:
1.) Salary difference for FNP vs. ANP? Is the pay better in a private practice or hospital setting?
2.) Which has a better outlook in terms of the job market? In other words, are there more FNP or ANP jobs out there?
3.) What are the greatest rewards you have gained in choosing NP as your career path?
4.) If I decide further down the line to advance myself to Doctorate level, would I have to start all over in terms of taking graduate level coursework or would I be able to enter a DNP program w/ credits earned from my NP degree?
Thanks for your replies to these many thought-provoking questions!
