Discussion – Week 10

Deciding to go back to school to obtain my master’s degree in nursing was a big decision for me. I truly love my job working bedside as an ICU nurse, but I know that it is not something I want to do long-term. My passion has always been in preventative care, helping people make healthy choices and manage their health before problems reach a point of needed advanced care. As I weighed my current job satisfaction against my goals for the future, I finally decided that it was time to advance my career. I thought that would be the hardest part – it wasn’t.

Knowing I was going back to school, the next challenge became determining what I wanted to specialize in. There are so many opportunities for APRNs, and even with a specific goal in mind there are still many ways to reach it. I was fortunate enough to know what school I wanted to go to already, based on a friend’s great reviews of it, but I still had multiple programs to choose from (Walden, n.d.). Weighing the pros and cons of each program, I had to really think about what I waned to do with my career and how each option would affect my future possibilities. I knew that my priority was my family, finding a way to balance my working hours with my household. This helped me eliminate the acute care options right away. Pediatrics has never been a primary interest of mine, so that helped further narrow things down. With much consideration, my choices were narrowed to adult/gero primary care, FNP, or psych.

I had to weigh how practical each of these specialties would be for me throughout my career. One of my goals with my family is to move overseas, with the plan of working in telehealth for a US company. Nurse practitioners are not recognized in most countries, so I would need security in my speciality and plenty of options for telehealth work (ThriveAP, 2018). This led me to my final round of decisions: FNP or psych. Both have great options for telehealth, and I feel secure in knowing that I will always be able to find plenty of jobs in either of these fields. I had a lot of pressure from a friend to choose psych, he reasoned that it pays better and I could always go back to get my FNP later on. However, as I said before, preventative care is my passion and ties in perfectly with my previous bachelor’s in public health. FNPs work with their patients through their entire life, guiding them in the best health choices and forming true relationships and understandings with them (AANP, n.d.b). While it may not pay as well as other specialities, it is something I know I will always have an interest and opportunity in, and a career that I am confident will make me happy in the long-run.

Starting this journey to becoming a nurse practitioner, the organization that stands out to me is the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). With a mission of empowering all NPs and promoting their practice, I believe they will provide me quite a few resources as I advance through my career (AANP, n.d.a). I want to stay relevant in my education and learn more about nursing policy and advocacy, and this organization will give me a great starting point for that. Having a group of like-minded peers will be invaluable as I progress in healthcare. In order to become a part of this organization, it is as simple as signing up. They offer different membership levels, so as I complete my program and start working I will be able to choose the membership best suited to my needs. Through the entirety of my career and beyond, the AANP will serve as a valuable resource for me.
