I am a BSN student and am applying to NP programs. My goal is to work in an ED, critical care unit or as a hospitalist as an NP. I have heard conflicting opinions about whether I should pursue the FNP or the Adult Acute NP. I have been told that I am more likely to be hired with the FNP (especially in the ED) if a lot of my clinical training is in the ED because it is includes peds. Others have told me that there will soon be regulations that restrict NP practice to the areas in which they were trained (i.e., FNPs will be restricted to primary care sites, etc.). Can anyone out there give me some practical advice? Thank you.
