I am yet to graduate but I am getting there. I just dont feel like I'll be prepared right out of school doing any kind of NP job. Need help from seasoned NPs regardless of speciality...please share what you did that worked for you to survive the first yr out of school? I am getting nauseous knowing how much I dont know. Do you still continue to study on your own, after work, free time, holidays ?? I know most of MDs, NPs subscribe to journals, do you still study text books?? What helped you most to be a competent provider after graduation?? I was thinking of getting a NP residency but there are only few residencies for NP and all are out of state which doesnt work for me.
