I am an FNP. I won't recommend or bash the profession but I will tell you about my experience. I have only worked outpatient as an FNP.
If you're outpatient you are scheduled anywhere from an 8-10 hour day. You are provided with an hour for lunch. You are scheduled acute visits every 15 minutes or 45 minute physicals. In the 15 minute visits you are expected to get history, do some type of physical, come up with a treatment plan which may include doing an in office procedure, prescribing medications, explaining medications, educating the patient and documenting everything that you did. This never happens of course, not if you're a thorough provider. So you end up working through lunch (just like your bedside days), documenting at home and missing out on what's going on with your family. In between your appointments, you're expected to call patients back about results, return patient calls, call other providers back that needed to get in touch with you, read and sign off on patient information. Of course you never have time in between appointments because 15 minutes is unrealistic so your appointments typically run into each other. You will likely be on call. So even when you're not physically in the office you still have to field calls from patients, hospitals, pharmacies, critical lab values.
You are ultimately liable if you don't get back to a patient in a timely fashion (there's no guideline for what timely fashion means), if you don't explain every single side effect and the patient experiences one, if you don't give your drug addict patient more oxycontin but they stay in pain, if your diabetic patient has an A1C of 11 and eats a dozen donuts a day even though you've educated them multiple times, if you go through a depression screen with your patient, they deny being depressed but 2 days later try to kill themselves. Well you won't be liable but people will try to make you liable. The only thing that will save you is if you properly documented but many providers don't. So that they don't take so much work home, many providers use templates which they lack the time to modify and typically don't give the documentation that an insurance company or department of health would deem appropriate for the patients presentation. So I spend a lot of time documenting because I know other APRNs who have ended up with fines or probation from the department of health because their documentation couldn't back up their claims that they met the standards of care.
Oh and there's the patients that want to see a "real" doctor, think that an NP is different from an APRN or that the PA is at a higher level than you just because you have nurse in your title. You'll work with physicians that are grateful to have you as a colleague because healthcare sucks and you need all the hands you can get. But you'll also work with physicians who are resentful towards you because you're stealing their piece of the pie (even though your not because no graduating residents want to do your job anyway, that's why they had to hire you in the first place). And lets not forget that you are likely not being paid 75% of what the physicians are making even though you're both doing the exact same job.
All in all, I still get disrespected as an FNP, I work a lot of extra hours that I don't get paid for, my risk of malpractice and being sued is way higher than a bedside nurse, and you pay more for malpractice insurance, licenses, CEUs.
