  6. FNP vs ACNP
    The ACNPs I have met also do more than basic admission orders and discharges. I know a lot of this will depend on your region, and the institution itself. I wish this decision was more clear cut!

  7. BS to Nurse Practitioner Route
    I'm not 100% positive there's no loop around it, but any schools I have looked at or had friends go to, a nursing license is required for entry. Some programs also require actual nursing experience...

  12. Question for you NICU nurses: what exactly is special care nursery?
    I think it really depends on the unit, so I agree, it's important for you to get clarification! Our special care refers to 3-4 baby assignments and they are usually just resolving a few final issues...

  19. Why do students get asked to do everything?
