You are welcome
Frontier is approved for NYS. Here is a list of approved programs for NYS
what is the complete question and the available choices for answers? I don't have the book.
Georgetown University ?
There were 8 last year - the university has small classes, usually 8 - 15 for FNP. 100% pass rate for the past 12 years of the program. Not sure what pass rates were prior to that, just know my advisor threatens us not to ruin her perfect record
I'm attending the Fitz review in Boston in May. Using the Leik book, Hollier review, q-bank and several other sources to study. The Fitz review is the one my advisor recommended - most of us are going to take the ANCC exam rather than AANP. The class that graduated last May from my college all attended Fitz -- 100% pass rate for the class on ANCC
No advice, I am just starting my final semester and have been studying for the exam for the past 6 months. Sorry you are going through this. Have you considered taking the ANCC exam instead?
Thank you for some really great advice! Looking forward to part 2.
Depends on the state practice act. FNPs here can work in ED, urgent or convenient care. Hospitalist positions are usually filled with MD, DO, PAs or ACNPs. I am sure there are still a few FNPs working in hospitalist positions, but not sure if they were grandfathered in? Our class recently met with the BON - and were told that FNPs could not work in acute care inpatient settings as it was outside scope of practice. I have seen job openings looking for FNPs to fill a hospitalist position in this state - but I would be leery of accepting one. The hospital may say -- oh, it's ok but the BON may have other ideas.
I'm just getting ready to start my final semester of FNP. Have been able to continue working full time with a little creative scheduling. And, since NP school was a long range plan for me, I squirreled away tons of ETO hours. Some weeks I am scheduled 2 nights, others I do 3. Some weeks, I don't work at all - I take all earned time. Fortunately, my employer has supported my educational aspirations. It can be done - it isn't easy, little sleep, not much of a life outside of work, school and clinical time. But - I am almost there. If school work or clinical preparedness starts to falter - you have to consider cutting down the hours worked and having saved up vacation time will make it a lot easier to do. I had to keep my insurance benefits -- one of the joys of getting older -- chronic health condition that requires treatment/monitoring.
Prayers to all.
I had an I one semester due to my clinical preceptor not turning in required paperwork, and it resolved about 3 weeks later after multiple phone calls and emails from the CI. I went on with my next semester without any interruption but every school is different. Call your CI and find out what the issue is. Good luck!
Just getting ready to start women's health. We have the same book as you, doesn't look very helpful. Our other required text is Advanced Health Assessment of Women: Clinical Skills and Procedures, 3rd Ed. by Carcio and Secor. The professor also strongly suggested we get the latest contraceptive technology book, but it is currently unavailable everywhere!
"Stop thinking like a nurse" is role transition - and I think it is something that all of us who are NP students struggle with at times. There is no reason to stop exhibiting the traits that make nurses such great patient care advocates/providers. You just have to apply it at a different level. Good luck, you can do this!!
If you are going to choose an online program, pick one that has a great network of past graduates willing to precept current students. Frontier comes to mind. Call and talk with them, ask how many graduates are in your particular state and if there are other students currently there. I am not a Frontier student or graduate - but they were my #2 choice. I ultimately chose a brick and mortar school in my state that offered hybrid classes as well as "in person" requirements. And - my school has a full-time clinical coordinator that does all the clinical placements. Good luck to you!
