I will be going to an absn program and was wondering if it is necessary to get RN experience before NP? Two schools
1) get rn experience pay down my loans, makes me more employable from what I have been told
2) go straight to NP program that means more years of experience at the job, the two jobs between RN and NP are completely different. I have more interests in working in specialties like Derm or psych.
What is the general consensus?
