Registered nurses who wish to become APRNs have a wealth of specializations from which to choose, including family nursing, acute care nursing, pediatric nursing, geriatric nursing, psychiatric mental health nursing, and women’s health nursing. To help RNs learn what specializations would best suit their career interests and goals, OnlineFNPPrograms.com has created this comprehensive Guide to APRN Careers.
Our well-researched Guide features detailed articles covering all of the major nurse practitioner specializations currently available, from adult-gerontology acute care nursing to pediatric primary care nursing. Each of our articles includes candid interviews with nurse practitioners in multiple specializations who work in a wide variety of medical settings. Our goal with this Guide is to give RNs and graduate nursing students a broad and detailed picture of the professional possibilities that an MSN may afford them. We continually add more research and interviews to our Guides to keep our content fresh and relevant.
