    Be on time. If you don't know the answer to a question say I'm not sure let me look that up. Have resources to find what you don't know. There are a lot of apps like 5 Minute Clinical Consult, Epocrates, Up to Date, & FNP Notebook. You don't need to know everything but you do need to know how to find information. I don't know alone is not an appropriate answer. Look up conditions that you are unfamiliar with. If procedures come up make sure you watch, learn, & ask questions. Perform procedures that you have learned like Paps. Learn the names of all the employees you will work with. "Front desk girl" has a name.

    When I worked on the floor I was a pre & post shift shower person too. The thought of sleeping after a 12 HR shift without showering gives me the heebie jeebies.

    There are so many threads on this. To answer the question though, it was simply because I wait listed for dental hygiene but didn't want to wait a year to start school.

    Nurses always make the argument that we need a seat at the table or we should be seen as a career not a vocation. If that is truly what we want then in my opinion the BSN should be the single point of entry. Nursing looks disorganized when we can't even decide how to become a RN. There are still diploma programs, ADNs, & BSN programs. I started as an ADN but immediately enrolled and began an RN-BSN program directly after graduation. In my area, ADNs & Diploma RNs have deadlines to obtain the BSN so why not just make that the entry point? New graduates without a BSN are having difficulty finding acute care positions here.

    Mine was on Improving Health Literacy in an Independent Pharmacy. About 175 pages I will never use again. Countless hours of my life I won't get back.

    Happy to report that after a near miss with AANP 6/21, I passed the ANCC today! Now officially a DNP, FNP-BC

    Philanthropist would be ideal but most likely not in the cards.

    I ended up completing the majority of my clinical hours at FQHCs 1.5 hrs from my home and with tolls of $17/day. I completed all women's health through the health department but still had to travel 1.5 hrs to go to the one that would take a student. When my NP preceptor fell through I was fortunate enough to have a physician in the office agree so that I didn't sit out. I used some preceptors twice. I was fortunate to never have to sit out but it came extremely close. I sent letters, attended local NP meetings, & made phone calls. None of that worked. I was lucky to get the foot in the door to the FQHCs I used because of a neighbor from childhood. A woman I hadn't seen in years. It really does come down to who you know.

    I joined the ranks of fellow DNPs Saturday. It feels so wonderful to graduate after 4 years in the BSN to DNP program! I have my AANP exam scheduled and look forward to finding my first job.

    Also, try public health departments. I completed my women's health hours with an amazing WHNP through the health department.
