Like PP mentioned I'm a FNP RNFA for about a year now. First, I do think it's wise to research your states BON. Mine was a bit grey but basically said I could practice in any role that I was adequately trained to do so in. Pretty vague. It does stipulate though, at least in my state, that I needed my RNFA to assist.

Like others said, this role has traditionally been that of the PAs and as NPs, we aren't trained for care of the inpatient so much of my training has truly been on-the-job or from previous knowledge as OR nurse.

Having said that, I'm happy with my choice to stay in the OR and never envisioned myself as an outpatient provider. Being in this unique position has allowed me to ask for what I wanted for salary, and get it, because they never had employed an NP RNFA before.

I'd say go for it. PM if you like..

I'm a CNM, not an NP, but I wanted to respond because I saw you were in L&D. I ended up accepting a job at planned parenthood and it is the best, most fulfilling job I've ever had (I come from a home birth CPM background). And the work/life balance is great. Clinic is 830-430, and I think I've had to stay late maybe twice in these past 5months, and usually I get out 10-15 min early at least once a week. And I am a new clinician, so I am definitely not unusually fast.

So for you that are established in your practice, are any of you in more rural areas? Where we live (and really cannot relocate as grandkids are here,yes, that was a pluck of the heart strings) is pretty rural, a lot of Amish, many people that have chronic conditions. My motivation for getting the degree is to educate about these conditions. It is probably idealisti,c but having worked with patients with comorbidity lists longer than my arm, I want to be in the preventive side. Any suggestions for me from your vast knowledge banks?

Every once in a while I am afraid to turn my car on in case someone has planted a car bomb. Lol.
