NPs in Arizona

Posted

Hi, I'm thinking about going to NP school in AZ but going back and fourth trying to decide if I should do FNP or AG-ACNP, the latter is my first preference but I have heard so many nurses say that FNP gives me more options. I want to work with adults only. I'm also trying to find an NP school in AZ as well. I don't want to end up with instructors who are not supportive. Any advice?

Thank you!

Do FNP if you want to have the ability to treat all ages in the outpatient setting.

Do AG-ACNP if you want to treat adults in the inpatient setting.

Thank you! It's AG-ACNP for me! Right now, I'm working in the step down unit and I've only been on this unit for about 3 months. ACNP requires that I work in the ICU, right? Can I apply to ICU after one year in step down?
