    I did CNS only because in my state, IL CNS=APN and I knew APN was the role I wanted. CNS was what was offered by my hospital-affiliated college of nursing so it made it infinitely easier to do that.

    I think my training somewhat prepared me for my new role as a novice APN. However, as I went into nephrology and had absolutely no experience in that area, I had a steep learning curve. I made mistakes along the way (and paid for them too) but now, almost 7 years later, I'm much more comfortable in the role.

    Thanks BC! Did you do adult or FNP?
    FNP. I currently see both adults and children in my practice.

    Yeah the VA is most likely where I will find the variety to do what I would like. I know a very experienced NP who has a private practice in my hometown who does 1 hour therapy /med mgmt sessions. She doesn't make much money, so that would have to be more of a retirement job. I just dont think I can do med checks forever, Ill need to do something to let me see more and be more involved in the treatment before I will be able to treat a patient is such a short amount of time.
