So, I am set to graduate in May with an MSN from a master's entry program. I will be a new nurse as well as a new WHNP, so I want to work as nurse for a while. I will take the certification exam when I graduate, but I do not have intentions of working in thre role if WHNP. My question is how the certification works..how many hours would I need to keep my certification current or what would I have to do to recertify in a few years if I decide to?? I'm struggling with this issue and really need some guidance! Thanks!
