I am certified as a primary care family nurse practitioner. Can I work inpatient in a hospital?

Sites of practice are determined by the employer, but it is YOUR responsibility to ensure that you consistently practice within your scope of practice. The rule of thumb is if you were not trained for the role expectation during your Master's preparation you should not participate in the role. At the present time none of the agencies/organizations that dictate NP certification or accreditation provide specific sites of practice for the various NP roles.
