  1. 0 Is there a list or a central place where I can find whT all the abbreviations are that are used here. I know a lot pertain to nursing terms but I just didn't want to have to google each one if there was a central place of them. For example I was reading a post that said, "I'm an FNP..." I just don't know what some of the posts are referring to. Any help is greatly appreciated! Oh and I'm not yet a nursing student, I will be applying for fall next year!

    We need reminding now and then to define abbreviations on first use in a post for this reason. Not all of our readers are experienced, and some aren't even in school yet. Thanks for the reminder.

    Ask .....tell them you are new and want to know what what thing mean...nurses like to teach. Google is a good resource and I sometimes have to ask or Google them myself
