Hello everyone!I am currently a nursing student graduating with my BSN in May 2016. My dream has always been to be a nurse practitioner rather than a RN. I have been researching the different universities in my state that offer the nurse practitioner program. I noticed that they all do NOT require work experience. For those of you who are in NP school, did you work before going to school? Do you think that it makes a significant difference to work for a year and then go to NP school? I know that RNs are usually trained for about 6 months when they first get a job as an RN. Thus, would working for merely 6 months be of any true benefit in terms of going to NP school? Thanks!
