I am going to be starting a FNP program through Herzing University in January and we are in charge of finding all of our own preceptors. I am having a very hard time finding NP's who are willing to take this on and I need at least 3 of my rotations to be filled by NP's. I have had no problem lining up MD's/DO's who are willing to take on the rest. They are flexible in what rotations they take so I am trying to see what I can get NP's to commit to first.
I need the following rotations: Advanced Health Assessment, Pharmacotheraputics, Women/infant health, Children/Adolescent, Adult, Geriatric
Any of these could be done in a family practice clinic or in a clinic that specializes in the specific area.
I have to have all of these set up before the program starts in January or I do not start.
Just a little background on me: I have been an RN for 6 years and have spent that time working in outpatient hemodialysis. I work in an urban clinic where we see patients with multiple comorbidities. Our nephrologists are basically these patients PCPs so I end up getting plenty of exposure to conditions outside of ESRD.
After working as an RN for 6 years, I realized I could do so much more for my patients and have decided to return to school. I am so excited to have the opportunity to better the lives of the patients I care for, but I need help getting there.
If anyone is willing to talk to me about this or knows someone who might, please contact me.
Thanks in advance for your consideration!
