    Your "girlfriend" does not sound very supportive. I would seriously rethink this relationship. The arrogance of many physicians is astounding. If anything, she should be in awe of who you are...the patient advocate and nurturer.

    Talk to the admissions rep. I did a letter explaining my first time around scholastic immaturity and had the grades 4.0 from my RN to BSN program (I was admitted on probation for 2 semesters). Anyway, NP accepted me again with 2 semesters probation and I graduated with 4.0 again. There is usually someway to resolve the situation. Good luck!

    The whole idea of the nurse practitioner role grew out of and advanced role for an EXPERIENCED registered nurse. This is why the programs "appear" to have limited education when compared to PA programs. The student was expected to have had experience that education would "grow" on. Today, schools are in the business of making money (whether they are public or not) and are now willing to take students in within little to no experience. I believe this is going to bite the profession in the butt! I see many physicians throw their hands up and choose a PA over a NP because the NP was not able to provide adequate professional experience. As Jules points out, many new grads have "limited ability to practice to their certification upon graduation".

    Like Texas...Florida is slow to change. Look at how long it took to get prescriptive rights! We have had autonomy bills go to Tallahassee several times...with them NEVER even getting past the committee. The docs here are making some good money with NPs paying them a monthly fee for "supervision".

    A true functional/integrative practice includes both allopathic and complementary approaches depending on the patient's needs. When looking at health, the functional practitioner is looking for clues BEFORE the person becomes "diagnosed" (patient sways to the left but compensates during Rhomberg...this will be a fail / touches tip of nose with any part of the finger rather than the tip of the finger...this will be a fail / Vitamin D level of 35...not good). There is a LOT of teaching and coaching to improve the patient's lifestyle choices. An increased look at genetic defects and how the environment can influence a bad gene to "turn on"...the list goes on and on. Understanding the various supplements, herbs, and homeopathics patients will try, or get, to treat "symptoms" just like drugs without determining what these symptoms can indicate. To me, it makes sense and my practice continues to grow with this approach through word of mouth.

    When I went to take my exam, I asked for a private room. They asked why..."because I have to read the questions and answers out loud to myself AND I tend to be very theatrical in figuring out my answer". Well...I got a private room. When I got done they told me I was one of the most entertaining test takers they had every encountered and were happy that I had passed!

    These scores do bring some concern to the surface. Have you been able to identify where your weaknesses are? Is it in a particular area or is it getting tripped up with the questions? Carefully review the correct answer against yours...WHY is it different? One cannot memorize the examples (may or may not be on the exam) but should understand the material well enough to appropriately identify the correct answer. If you are getting tripped up...then you are reading too much into your question, not reading the question slowly enough to pick up the "twist", and/or not considering each answer in relationship to the question. I have always been a HORRIBLE test taker and found that my weakness was in getting tripped up by the question in regards to reading more into it that was actually there. English is my second language, so I also would get in trouble with double negatives, etc. I really worked hard on this and passed my exam on the first pass. Good luck!
