Hi everyone!

I'm currently a Junior at Emory pursuing my BSN. I am interested in eventually becoming an NP in Oncology. Do you have any advice on how I may go about doing this? I know that I have to at least get my MSN since they have not completely transferred over to the DNP for NPs yet. Would I just need to get an MSN in adult acute care? I look forward to hearing your thoughts, because I am a little lost with all the information online.

Thank you!

You will need to get an MSN for sure. You would probably be able to work oncology as an FNP or ACNP depending on your setting. It would benefit you to get your certification in oncology as a staff nurse after your BSN. My grandfather was at MD Anderson getting cancer treatment for a long time and the nurse practitioners involved in his case were ACNPs.
