I am currently enrolled in a MSN program-ANP-Primary Care option. As a ANP, would I be restricted to primary care in urgent care clinics for the adult population, or would I have the option to work with a physician within a practice(Internal Med, Cardiology, Nephrology, etc.). I am asking these things because I would like to work with a cardiologist and I am confused as can be thinking that maybe I should be enrolled in the ACNP option instead of the ANP-Primary care. This is my first semester, so I am trying to gather a little more information before next semester.
I am very much concerned about marketability. I am interested in primary care because I like the idea of trying to assist in prevention of disease processes and education of doing so, but I also want to be able to find a job after I graduate.
Any information out there that would assist me in this will be GREATLY appreciated, and if there are any ANP's or ACNP's out there, please let me know about your satisfaction as a ANP/ACNP, what your days consist of, and pay ranges:nono:....I know its taboo, Sorry!!
