Hello,I am a freshman in college seeking to become a Nurse Practitioner. Not sure which specialty to go into, but I am looking into Family practice, anesthetic nurse, acute care...I am also a male by the way. I am still developing knowledge about he nursing field, but through more research, job shadowing, etc ill learn more. My question is how long does it take to become a NP? Considering the amount of school, experience required, and the new recommendation for a DNP by 2015.Thank you so much!
