It is interesting that the Atlanta VA has only chosen to accept AGPCNPs and not also to include FNPs as other state VA systems have done:

This program was initially, also, only for Emory students/graduates so I am very happy to see the expansion.

I do hope that many new grads take advantage of this opportunity as it will only strengthen their knowledge base and foundation of learning in the real world.
