Hey ladies and gents! Some of you already know my history, but a quick background:LPN 12 years, new RN, just finished my bachelors. I landed a sweet critical care gig at a local hospital, and my plan was to do that for the next 2 years and then consider continuing on up the ladder.The problem is, I can't get the desire to go back to school out of my mind. My ultimate goal is ACNP.Is it crazy to jump into a DNP NP program now? Part of me says my LPN experience isn't enough to justify going for it now. Part of me says it is because I have great assessment skills, technical skills, and my pharm knowledge is on point. But, I'm worried if I take another break, I won't go back. The thought of doing another 3 years makes me cringe, so I considered a MSN NP program, but then I feel like I'll just have to go back anyways to be competitive in the future. I know, a lot of rambling. I just need some experienced opinions. Am am I totally koo-koo for considering this right now?
