I have the opportunity to work closely with the NPs on my unit (ICU), and have a good idea what it means to be an NP there, but I just wanted to get a little broader perspective and see what things are like in other areas.
So for all the NPs out there (specifically acute care)
Do you enjoy what you do?
What area/ specialty to you work in and what is a typical day like for you?
Are you satisfied with the level of autonomy you have? And do you feel respected by other members of the healthcare team?
And lastly, how long were you at the bedside before you went for your NP? I have heard a lot of people advise that the more experience you have, the better an NP you will be. Opinions?
I really appreciate any and all responses!
