I am so confused on what to choose.
I am not sure if I want to pursue a DNP or MSN. I have heard that DNP is more focused on leadership/management and does not really enhance your clinical practice skills (correct me if I heard wrong).
Secondly, I don't know if I want to pursue FNP or acute care. I have been considering a dual program or going the FNP route and then taking a post masters certification for acute care.
I want the flexibility to see all kinds of patients (FNP) but I also don't want to sit in a clinic everyday and see the same patients with the same chronic issues. I like the excitement and rush of acute situations (ACNP).
If I decide soon, ideally, I can go back within a year to pursue a masters degree. I would love to hear any advice.
