    Can anyone explain to me, in detail, the pathway to becoming a nurse practitioner in general practice?

    I'm about to embark on my adult nursing degree, but am considering my wider career options for my future in nursing. I am already aware that I would require a masters degree (MSc in advanced nursing practice and management OR similar) as well as a independent prescribing qualification, however I am unable to find much information about how people progress from being say a practice nurse or nurse working in A and E to being a nurse practitioner in said specialist primary or secondary care fields.

    Any resources people could point me to or advice you could give me would be appreciated.
