If I were to get a MSN to become a Clinical Nurse Leader, how would I become a gerontological nurse practitioner? I have read that you can complete certificates, but I have not been able to find any information on this. I think that I am not searching the right phrase, because I'm stuck on how to go from a CNL to a gerontological NP. (There are many programs that offer the CNL in my area, so I am planning to get this MSN degree, but then switching to NP.) I feel that having a MSN would give me an advantage. Also, I am not sure if I would have to complete another MSN (in order to get the NP) if I am already a CNL.
Thanks for any help!
