I am going to be applying for an NP program in the near future. I need some assistance on which type of program to apply for. FNP OR Acute Care? I would like to work in the ER and/or ICU. I have not decided which specialty that I want to go with. The question is, which type of program is best to ensure a good fit to either specialty? I just don’t want to be limited.

do market research in your region. FNP See both adults and kids and are more often hired as mid levels in ER, acute care is more for adult and pedi divided ER's and acute care is intenivist driven. hired mostly in hospital. but both can get hire out of hospital depending on the specialty. FNP is more competitive to admit into because of the versatility and popularity it seems in hiring.
