    Passed both ANCC and AANP .... AANP was harder for sure! ANCC was 50% is research and policy

    I think this post should be directed to those living in Southern California. I know people who waited over 6 years to get into a ADN program. So it's like is the wasted time worth the cost? In the LA and OC area the average nurse makes 65-90 thousand a year to start... Is it worth 140,000 of education or wait 6 years? I would just get my education. The waiting game is a waste of money too. Working at McDonalds for 20-30 thousand a year is also a waste. West Coast has a pretty good rep in The OC, and I have worked with a lot of the LVN to BSN grads too. They are well prepared, mostly because I think the school has a 3 million dollar SIM lab where a manikin actually sweats!!! Anyway, if it's your dream and willing to sacrifice u plus go for it!

    Thanks everyone! I'm not a new grad NP and this is what they offered. I found it crazy but I wanted to double check. Rejected the offer

    Being a NP I feel less tired after work and don't feel rushed. It's the practice though because I rarely see more than 15 patients a day.
    Working on the floor it has it's good and bad days but I can still plan my day as I wish. Those 12 hours are killers, but being a floor nurse you get a real camaraderie that you don't get as a NP. ( I am the only provider in my office when I am there) so it will depend on where you work. Some NPs work very hard when there clinic is very busy.

    After my 12 hour shift on med surg I feel exhausted. Sometimes I laughed all day during my shift on the floor. So it will just depend on where you work.

    If I had to choose, I would rather be a NP than a floor nurse because my hours are better, I don't feel exhausted after work, I actually get to see my family on a consistent basis. The pay is much better. I feel as though I am making a bigger difference in people's lives.

    Hope this helps

    I would quit after I had another job on hand. There is nothing wrong with quitting something you don't like! It's your quality of life!!!

    This is so interesting, this recently happened to me, I was accused of substance abuse due to a conversation that was overheard by another. The other person said that due to my comment I was probably on something. I laughed it off and never gave it a second thought. Later the boss came at me and wants to know the details of the convo. I explained them, but it bothered me so much I resigned. They did not request a drug test though. Are you absolutely certain a drug test was asked for? I took this as an insult and immediately resigned. I was in the job for about 3 weeks when this occurred.
