I have applied to FNP schools starting in the fall. Currently I am working in the ICU in all areas (neuro, medical, and cardiac). The opportunity to cross train to the ED has presented itself. I am interested in cross training due to the invaluable experience of seeing the presentation of patients across the life span/working closely with physicians/NP's. I would like to know from those of you that are FNP's, do you think ER nursing experience would help me be a better FNP? I hope to work in primary care in a clinic when I am an NP. Thank you for all of the advice.
