i'm completely torn btwn attending a pnp program at ut houston (uthsc) or a fnp program at twu!!!
i have a couple years of adult rn exp & 5 yrs pedi exp.
peds and could see myself working in a clinic setting or hospital setting. i am also possibly interested in getting the acute care np post masters cert so i could work anywhere in the hospital -maybe icu.
i get tired of peds and want to do something else?
both twu and uthsc are good schools
-but which one is better (more organized, better education, ect)?
wouldn't it be nice to be certified to treat all ages? but what if i am disappointed with the amount of peds education in the fnp program, since i do plan on working peds after program completion? do pediatric hospitals and pediatricians hire fnps?
any info on the two above mentioned programs or fnp vs. pnp would be greatly appreciated!
