Does anyone work in these areas as an NP? How did you get into it, what was your prior experience as an NP and as an RN? Any advice on how to get started? I have been in family for 2 years (But clinic operates like urgent care, seeing chronic and acute, walk-ins, minor procedures such as lacerations, I&D, on site lab abd Xrays). Prior to that I did pre and post op for pain management procedures and also for day surgery, ED overflow, telemetry, PCU, peds, rehab, and skilled nursing facility.
