I'm a prospective student of a few direct-entry programs. I'm hoping to become a PNP, however, I have a few questions for those of you who have graduated from such programs or who might simply have any answers/guidance for me. I'm interested in a variety of pediatric settings, however, my eventual goal in the clinical sense is to work within a children's hospital in hematology/oncology. I realize that PNP is specifically primary care, and may not usually lead in this direction, however, is this entirely unheard of? That is, is it impossible to gain employment as a PNP in a specialty clinic (such as oncology) without being an ACNP?
Thank you in advance for any help that can be thrown in my direction!
