    Ever heard of a Loyola University New Orleans? That is the distance program that I chose. I did research on Georgetown and several others. I chose not to go to Chamberlain but hope you do well.

    You pretty much summed up my job daily. Palliative Care provides support, pain/symptom management, and care coordination. We take all the specialty pieces and put that into the big picture for the family. It can be overwhelming with specialists all coming in but only handling their organ (puzzle piece). The challenge is getting the physicians to consult us so we can help from step one. We are not Hospice although we definitely do refer to them.

    I attended Loyola University New Orleans. Most of it was online but we had dates to be on campus every year. I even completed some of my clinical hours in Louisiana. Every semester a faculty member visited each student on the clinical site and evaluated us. I feel that I had the best of both worlds. Honestly, no education can fully prepare you to transition from RN to NP. There is a learning curve and you feel like you are doggie paddling for the first year I am told. I am four months into my first job as an NP. I am constantly learning and asking questions. Best advice is to KNOW what you DO NOT KNOW. New providers that don't ask questions or look anything up are scary.

    I think you should go to loyno.edu and read over what is necessary for entry.

    From cbxo In NP Pay

    Quote from Aromatic
    I do not forsee NP salaries going up in the future. More supply and lower quality graduates due to many sloppy schools, and people are catching on that many NPs are not ready for practice when they graduate, or really ever. There are some good ones though so not group bashing here.

    ^^^This! I was less than thrilled to discover my new partner in palliative care earned her degree through a for profit, completely online, and no supervision aka Degrees For Everyone U

    Johns Hopkins has a psych program. Very reputable and just $1509/credit.

    The real question would be Is the cheapest DNP the best quality education?

  • Apr 10

    Well in oncology they don't do the same Job so no they shouldn't be paid the same. If it means that's much to you then feel free to get the same education that we RNs have.

    After years of yo yoing with my weight, I had gastric bypass. It has been an excellent choice for me. I'm down 100 lbs and it will be a year in May. It's the little things that have made me notice how much weight affected daily life. I take the steps constantly at the hospital now. I was able to keep up with a group of 8th graders in D.C. I can finally shop in the regular section. I no longer take several medications. Mostly just various vitamins. I know surgery isn't for everyone but it was a great choice for me.
