TN APRN Licensure; New Grad and still no job!

  1. Hi All,

    I am new to Tennessee and also a new grad Family Nurse Practitioner. I was surprised with how difficult it has been to even land an interview down here! I expected some wait, being a new NP and all, but it seems to be an extremely tough (and oversaturated) market for new grads right now! I have an opportunity to do some home health assessments for medicare while continuing my job search. My question is how long did it take you all to get your TN APRN license? It's been about 4 weeks since my "fees" were taken out of my bank account but the person I spoke with at the BON said they just started processing my application on Dec. 30. He had no idea when it would be completed. My concern is that I will lose this job opportunity and back to square one with no income!

    Additionally, if any of you Nashville area NPs have advice about landing a job as a new grad in this market please let me know!!
