The future of NP's

  1. Hello everyone.

    I have been doing quite a bit of research about the NP profession, and it seems to be one the has a bright future--the growing trend for NP's to work completely independently, the decline in Family Physicians, the large chain stores that are going to start employing on-site NP's, etc....I don't see many downsides to this career. Am I missing something?

    Where do you see the future of advanced practice nurses going? (CNM, CNS, NP, and CRNA....I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on this)

    I am an adult health CNS and see many more specialty areas opening up to APNs including many dealing with the aging population.
