Hi everyone. So I've been an RN on a telemetry floor for just 1 year now. Prior to this I have only done home care nursing for a few months. After switching to the hospital I realized that I not only hate being a floor nurse, but I really almost lost all confidence in my career choice. It has been a tough year and it is getting harder for me to want to show up to this job every week. So, I've decided I want to go back into the out patient setting as an NP. I would really like to work in settings such as clinics managing chronic conditions - CHF, DM, HTN etc... I see a lot of clinics in the job descriptions look for FNPs but I am not necessarily interested in the pediatrics portion of healthcare what so ever so I figured I would just go the adult - gerontology route. after some research I see adult-gerontology NPs can see people as young as 13 y/o in NJ which I am OK with. I am just wondering, if not going the FNP route will hinder me from being able to work at clinics. Of course I can always work at a primary care office but I prefer clinics in urban areas. In particular I am interested in the new minute clinics CVS is launching. I am also interested in working for insurance companies as a Nurse Practitioner doing patient education, in home assessments, and prescribing meds that way. If anyone has any advice on the route I should go or any experience with this I would love it you could share some of your knowledge! Thanks for reading!
