1. I am applying for school for PNP. I have also considered FNP, but would much rather stick with kids. My concern is how much this will limit me in finding a job. Are there any PNPs that found this to be a problem? Thanks

    I had a job before I graduated. I knew I only wanted peds so I wanted to ensure my education matched that. I didn't want to waste time learning about adults when j never wanted one as a patient.

    I also had job offers before graduation. I don't think your limiting yourself, if you are sure that's the career path you want.
    I was a pediatric RN for 8 years before becoming a NP. Pediatrics is all I know and I wanted an advanced education in it. So the PNP route made sense for me. I knew I would never have an interest in adult care.
