Hi! I'm a grad student at Villanova in the FNP program and I'm doing an Independent Study looking at Family Nurse Practitioners working in pediatric settings, mainly in primary care.
I am Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Nurse by trade, and went back to school to do FNP to get a broader education, get out of the hospital, and thought my passion is peds, I felt FNP would make me more marketable.
I haven't had much luck finding people to interview to get the "lived" experience. People kept telling me that it was rare to find an FNP in a pediatric practice so I wanted to do some research and see how many I could find, hopefully in the Pennsylvania area, or interview someone to get their perspective on the transition from mainly adultcare to working with children,etc.
If anyone out there is a FNP working in peds, or knows of any, please contact me...I'd be grateful to hear about anyone's experiences, background, and advice! Thanks!
