I'm in the processing of applying for graduate school. I'm looking at applying to University of Miami's full time Family NP or Acute Care NP program. I love acute care and would love to have the option of working in the hospital. I know that FNP's can work in the hospital but what they do is limited. I also however would like to work in the outpatient/urgent care setting (more of an FNP based thing). From looking at the job market, most jobs in palm beach county (where I live) are for FNPs. A lot of the acute Care NP positions are down in Broward/miami-dade county. Has anyone graduated from the Acute Care NP program at the University of Miami? Where did you find employment? Are you solely based in the hospital or do you also work outside of it? I know up north, the Acute Care NPs have the option of both. Also, would you recommend doing FNP first or the Acute Care NP? Help!

Hi, im also in the application process for the one year FNP in miami and im also from palm beach county. Im concern about the same thing you are, i don't want to be limited when i graduate.

I also wanted to know more about the programs, im nervous because i can imagine it will be very very hard. Have you talked to anyone who graduated from miamis program?

Sorry for the late response. no I haven't been able to get in touch with anyone whom graduated from UM's acute care nurse practitioner program. I decided on applying for FNP and then probably go back for my ACNP. I did however interview with Barry a few weeks ago and it seems as though acute care is up and coming.
