Hey there everybody.I am in a nurse practitioner program (FNP track). A few years ago, in this program, students were allowed to do some clinicals in the ED. Now, they won't let us do clinicals in the emergency room, as they say the FNP program is for practitioners that are going to be working in family practice settings. I understand this, hence FNP, but on the same token, our local emergency departments need practitioners, they don't want to hire ACNP, because the populations they treat are more specific (adults). Still, the group that hires practitioners where I work says that if they hire practitioners, they'd like them to have done some clinicals in the ED. I plan on working in a MD's office when I graduate, but I'd like the option of working in the ED at some point. That's where I work now, and I would miss it. I thought about the ACNP track, but it's not offered close to where I work or live, and now I'm already a semester into this. Anyway, do you think after some time in an office a staffing group would hire me to do some ER work? Also, it it possible one of these groups offers a training program for FNPs to get acquainted with ER work. You would think all of my ER training (5 years by the time I graduate, only place I've ever worked) would help somewhat. I don't know. Anyway, thanks for reading. What do you all think.
