Hi everyone. :spin:
So I am considering getting my MSN in the FNP or ACNP program. I currently have my BSN and having been working in telemetry with adults for almost 2 years now. I have several concerns.
1) I am not sure if this is too soon and if I should gain more bedside experience and get more exposure. My co-workers say that I should go back to school because I am young (early 20s) and single.
2)If it is too soon to think about being an NP, then should I get my MSN in education for now and then go back and complete post-master's programs such as ACNP or FNP.
3) I am also wondering how important it is to do bedside peds or obgyn for FNP. The last time I dealt with a pregnant lady or a ped was back in clinicals in nursing school.
4) Should I try adult ICU before I consider an FNP or ACNP program?
I know these are a lot of concerns
sorry. I would great appreciate some advice from NPs out there. I feel like this is such a big decision.
Thanks in advance for any support.:spin:
