Nurse Practitioner; from
3 year(s) of experience
I a new NP in palliative care. Would also like to know this. I plan to take it after my 1 year of practice.
Is an inpatient palliative care nurse practitioner that primarily cares for critical care patients in the ICU eligible to take the CCRN examination if they complete the required number of hours? Thanks in advance!
I totally agreed just using "NP" across the board.
I am a new grad FNP and I just accepted a position in inpatient palliative care. Any RNs or NPs in palliative? This will be my first job as an NP. I have 4 years of experience in PCU. Any tips or recommendations for me? What resources would you suggest to use? I want to be prepared.
I have search allnurses for this but have not found enough answers. Thanks!
I am a new graduate FNP in California. Do I need to be employed by a group or physician in order to apply for a DEA? Thanks!
Thank you for sharing. I'm waiting to start my first NP position and reading these eases the anxiety. Thank you!
This is also so difficult because there are so many certifying bodies out there for every APRN and populations. Family NP has 2 certifying bodies. It would be great I think if national certification was administered like the NCLEX so exams would be standardized in the national level.
With CRNAs recommending the DNP as the entry requirement for practice by 2025 and CNSs by 2030... when do you think state laws will require the DNP for APRN practice?
Do you think this will happen within the next 10 years? 20 years? Never?
I know this is a controversial topic but I think this will eventually be a positive push for APRNs.
OH good! Another RockMay post! I love these.
PAs may be able to do, in practice, 85% of what a physician does (after OTJ training) but they certainly don't learn 85% in 2 years, what a physician does in 4 (plus residency). That's a ridiculous claim.
But Rock is kind of fanatical about PAs. Bit of a chip on his/her shoulder and something to prove.
when your very creation is to assist a physician how can you argue to be independent?
Sounds like a nightmare, I would just do PhD (non-nursing) to research and teach. I don't understand what the point of the DNP is in addition to a PhD. I have seen combined MD/PhD programs, and that makes much more sense to me as they are physicians who conduct medical research. What does a DNP/PhD do exactly, develop new nursing theories?
Correct. PAs have more education which is superior in depth and quality to that of NPs.
I don't think PAs can have full practice authority because their practice is medicine. NP practice is sesperate from medicine which justifies the autonomy. If PAs want full practice authority and responsibility of medicine, go to medical school.
