Phd in Nursing and considering DNP, is it worth it?

I'm finishing my PhD in nursing and I'm considering a DNP or FNP ( I have a MSN). Is it worth it as far as jobs available? I was thinking of more flexibility for job opportunities.

I know this is old but - absolutely NOT! There is no advantage to a DNP that you don't already have from your PhD.

Hi ghillbert, I saw your comments on another blog about E3.  Are you an Australian citizen and have obtained an E3 visa before? I am looking into an E-3 visa as well, my question we just need an offer letter from the employer, or does the employer has to fill out forms?
