Does anybody know if an FNP can work in an acute care setting (hospitalist) in Nevada? I am getting an interview soon by a group of hospitalist and I am not sure if this might be a good idea? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Check with your state BON. It is becoming increasingly rare for an FNP to work in-pt as this is not where your education/training was provided.
Here is some info about FNPs practicing in the in-pt environment:
Statement for Employers on Primary & Acute Care CNPs (2013)
FNP vs ACNP + Core Differences - 2 18 NurseJournal.org2 18 NurseJournal.org
ANd here's a link to the Nevada APRN organization
The Nevada Advanced Practice Nurses Association | ENP Network
In the end, it is YOUR responsibility, not your EMPLOYER to determine if you are practicing out of your scope of practice.
Useful links. I am definitely considering doing post-grad agacnp
