While I still have another year left in my FNP program I look at help wanted ads for NPs and notice that they all ask for experience as a NP. Are they really expecting all the NPs who apply will have the required years under their belt?
Also, how does salary work your first year around? I've read through the salary thread, but wonder if there are jobs for new NPs with decent salaries?
Lastly, someone once recommended that I find a first-time job that does not require on-call hours simply to learn the job and not be stressed by unexpected calls. Looking at the NPs I know they all take call. Any suggestions on places to look for this sort of work?
I may have more questions later since this is something I'm always pondering.
