I have been wanting to do a Geriatric NP since I started NS. I like seniors, feel like I work well with them and have more patience with them than some others. However, I have had a lot of ppl tell me that a Geriatric NP is a waste of time, and all I'd be doing is working in a nursing home.
I have no interest in working with young adults, so I don't want to pursue a FNP. But I also don't want to be confined to a nursing home! Faculty from one of the schools
in my area said that most of their grads are being asked to round in hospitals, at nursing homes, and work in an office (all about equally) - does this sound plausible? Is a GNP in demand? or even marketable?
I'd like to hear any & all opinions!
