    APRN Education

    Thank you for such a detailed response. Not an assignment. We covered scope of practice, types of healthcare providers, state requirements and authority. It's weird not just the requirements but also state to state. I graduated with my bs in math a couple years after the recession and job security has been mediocre. I just started my RN this semester ( luckily I applied before before covid was an issue) and was looking at all the options. I have become more weary however when programs push more and more gradute schooling ( it's just the debt I really enjoy learning) or when there is another profession that has greater flexibility than can fill you niche. I've seen organizations exploit these flexibilities in the past. I was only looking to see if there was a general opinion about the future of nursing education and maybe career outlook. Thanks, Tommac

    APRN Education

    Nursing student here and I have a question. Why does nurse practitioner education require specialization, for example FNP vs pmhnp, when PAs have a general education and can work within any specialty? When moving NP education to the doctorate level wouldn't it have been beneficial to encompass all major areas of practice so NPs could better compete with PAs? Thank you for the responses, Tommac
