ANP to FNP or PNP?

Marzipan8 Marzipan8 (New) New

Hello, I have currently been working as an adult NP for several years and am thinking about going back for a post master's - either FNP or PNP - so I will be able to see pediatric patients as well.

I am wondering whether you all have any thoughts or experience on which route makes the most sense for the purposes of being able to work in a family practice or urgent care setting.

Thank you! ?ui=2&ik=8f5af58f3a&view=fimg&th=153f7bcbd8badbe5&attid=0.1&disp=emb&realattid=ii_153f7bcbd8badbe5&attbid=ANGjdJ-3V4ZBTKfbGRaqSIEcy2wJ81FLkYmV5vhsBp1JIKWfC5fPt_HkxA0jNbRO-8UABddqOGrfTHwHUkniwJwUfck0IotO_GyWPMz2Y9Z5ahx24LHvJk650APpzZo&sz=s0-l75&ats=1460150255094&rm=153f7bcbd8badbe5&zw
