Just thought I would ask here, through my journey into a new field of nursing, I have had primary focus in PACU and working for a pain service on the side. I've actually gotten quite used to working in the pain management areas and was wondering what my options are for this field in advance practice? I currently have my ADN and just over a year of experience, so have a ways before I get into the NP range. The closest I have found is CRNA school, which frankly is an aspect I don't specifically have an interest in. I noticed there's a pain management test on the AACN website, but I could get that cert without even going for my NP. Just thought I'd check and see what some options or avenues are available.
