I'm interested in pursuing an NP degree. Having a very hard time making the NP/PA/MD/DO decision because of all the surrounding circumstances.
Anyway - one thing that interested me with the NP degree was the availability of lateral movement within the field. I heard that there were certifications one could get which would allow them to gain extra knowledge with specific conditions. Is that correct?
I had heard, for example, that there were certifications on alternative medicine that would give NPs greater knowledge of nutrition and alternative medical options.
Can anyone point me to more information about all of this?
