I am in the last year of my BSN program and am thinking about grad school. I was a paramedic for 20 years before nursing. I am thinking about becoming an NP but unsure of my focus. Thanks for the great information.

Thanks for a great information! I have been contemplating returning to school for my DNP so this was quite helpful.

The days are OVER when gynecologists and anesthesiololgists covered ER shifts for extra money. If a FNP wants to practice in an acute care setting, they can go and get extra certification in that specialty...it's really quite simple.
