I am scheduled to graduate from my BSN program in Spring 2015. I am curious to hear pros and cons about going right to a Master's FNP program after graduating from the BSN program. While I am sure it would be helpful to get a few years experience before starting the NP program, this is a second career for me and I am almost positive I would ultimately like to go the NP route. While the AANP is only recommending the DNP starting in 2015, it is possible they will require it within the next 5-10 years. Ideally, I would like to get the NP before this shift happens, if at all. That is not to say I wouldn't get the DNP eventually, just not right away. I will have experience working as a perioperative tech this summer and have had several years experience working on the postpartum, L&D, and NICU floors as an IBCLC at two large hospitals.Any advice greatly appreciated!
