Duke specialty certification


Has anyone completed the Duke ortho specialty certifications as a part of their FNP program at Duke?

Duke offers 8 credit/200 clinical hour "specialty certifications" that can be taken as electives for NP students at Duke or non-degree classes for students of other NP programs and practicing NP's. Ortho, HIV, onc and cards are offered.

I just wanted to see if anyone had any experience with these, specifically the ortho, to see if they were worth it to pay $15,000 out of pocket for.

I found a 2yr ortho fellowship at UNC but am not sure I can commit to moving there for 2yrs. 1 probably but not sure about 2. I found this and wondered if it may be helpful as a middle ground.
