NP in ER which degree is best?

  1. I currently work as an ER nurse. I would like to work in the ER a NP. Is it better to get a FNP degree or a blended critical care/emergency degree? I have heard of nurses who have not been able to get a job because they don't have suturing and radiology skills. Also if anyone graduated from University of South Alabama please share your thoughts on their online MSN programs.

    Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN has a NP program devoted to Emergency NP, which has peaked my interest. You get certified in Family and Acute Care. Not totally online and not totally onsite...which is something I need!
