Which specialty is best?

I am interested in becoming an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (ACNP- DNP) and am wondering which specialty is usually required for acceptance into most programs. Is ICU experience usually recommended/required, or ER/Trauma? I am just trying to plan for my career path.

Dodongo, APRN, NP

Depends on the program. My university required 2 years ICU experience to apply. Some will take any hospital based experience.
