I am currently in my Theory of Professional Roles class as a PNP student and need to interview a PNP for a paper. I have 8 questions, they're pretty straightforward. It shouldn't take more than 20-30 minutes and I could simply email you the questions. Any willing PNPs out there to help me? Please respond or PM me with your email address. Thanks!
Thank you both for your responses! You have definitely reconfirmed what i was thinking/feeling, its just nice to hear it from someone who has already been through or is going through PNP school. Even though PNP is a more focused specialty vs. FNP, there is still such a huge age range. Perhaps I am most worried about marketability, seems like FNP jobs are easier to find than PNP, however I would prefer to have much more education and be an "expert" in pediatrics so I think I am going to stick with my gut and do the PNP route.
@ Jennifer0512: Good luck on the boards!
I know this is an old post, but I was wondering how PNP school is going for those who didn't have much peds experience as an RN to begin with or for those who were debating PNP vs. FNP? I am starting a PNP program this fall, graduated with my BSN Aug. 2011 and am currently working as an adult med-surg float RN, not by choice though, really the only option in my area for new grad RNs. I didn't enjoy my rotations in adults in undergrad school, and am not exactly thrilled with working with adults now, but I absolutely fell in love with my peds rotation. I guess I just want to know how you are feeling, if you felt like you made the right decision? I'm pretty sure that I only want to work with kids, but I've been told that nursing school and actual nursing is completely different. Any thoughts?
i signed up for econ and theory on tues and research and diversity on thurs, guess we will be having some classes together
@danceluver the only things they look at for acceptance are your gpa and the pre-reqs, experience doesn't matter at all is what i was told. when i went to the info session they said about 75% get in for pnp and 50% for fnp. the information sessions are offered monthly on campus and they are really helpful, the csulb nursing website has alot of info too!
@rroxas, ive been debating for awhile whether to go full or part time, i signed up for full time classes currently, i dont really want to be in school for another 3.5 years, and i think i remember hearing that getting a MSN is easier than BSN because we already know the theory, basic concepts, etc so its just building on what we know. and yeah im glad they help us find clinical placements! so have you decided 100% on csulb?
@ rroxas, i think i may just go parttime as i dont have the option of going parttime at work. since i work nights i am going to try and take 2 of the afternoon/evening classes, probably econ and the theory of advanced practice. also i graduated from csulb with my bsn just last year and i personally think it has an awesome undergrad nursing program, its one of the best, very high pass rate...i havent heard much about the graduate program though, im hoping it will be just as good. are you planning on going fulltime? what have you heard about the MSN program?
@ kaamsi, i can relate to you, i just graduated with my bsn and have only been working as a RN for 4 months, so going into a MSN program so soon with such little experience is very scary! have you for sure decided on csulb?
oh okay! yeah i sent her an email, but have yet to receive a response. thats good news though! i guess ill be seeing you on the 21st! which classes do you plan to take the first semester?
congrats kaamsi! ive received admission to CSULB but havent heard anything from nursing. is this the same for the majority of you guys? im guessing that i need to wait to hear from nursing before i accept or decline anything/register for classes right?
i applied to PICU as well and status still says "under review"
hello yams012! i applied for PNP and i thought i remembered hearing may too, but then i wasnt sure that i was just assuming because may is usually the month that undergrads hear about their acceptance. hmm, guess we will have to just be patient. good luck to you too!
anyone apply to csulb's MSN program for fall 2012? im wondering when we might hear anything about acceptance or how many spots they have available?
good luck to you both! im also hoping to hear something from them!
