    Have you been working as a nurse? If so how long have you worked as a nurse. I have my BSN and also want to take this journey of obtaining my DNP, but I want to work for at least 2 years first. I work on a cardiac step-down unit and I love it so much. I want to obtain my DNP in acute critical care nursing. Good luck to you.

    I have been working for 3 years but I know that I do not want to be at bedside. You get a lot of opinions on these boards as far as how much experience or if you even need experience. I say you need to do what is right for you. By the time I finish my program I will have 6 years experience and I believe that is more sufficient.

    Congrats! Do you need to find clinical sites by yourself?

    Yes we are responsible for finding our own clinical sites. Hopefully that will work out ok. We are allowed to complete clinicals with either a physician or an NP.

    I'm a bit confused are you a working RN? What type of floor do you work on? What do you want to specialize in as an NP?

    Congratulations! I think 3 years is a good amount of time before starting NP school. I hope you do well. The only time I caution people is when they are right out of undergrad with no experience and want to go a route that would pigeon hole them in before they have a chance to get their feet wet and decide if they really like what they think they will.
