My local university has an FNP program, and the closest PNP program beyond that is far enough away that it would require a move (not an option b/c of family). I really prefer a face to face program (I'm better at online, but learn more face to face), so online is out.
Is it common for FNPs to work in peds in primary care? I haven't seen that we have any FNPs in pediatrics locally, but to be honest, I don't know if there are any APNs in practice locally at all, except for a couple of midwives. We have PAs, and a couple of them are in pediatrics.
I see the number of PNP programs are few, so my assumption is that it is common for FNPs to work in pediatrics, but that could be wrong.
