Thank you all. I think it would probably be best for me to find a full-time position (especially since very few are hiring part-timers) when I graduate. Then, as I am gaining experience as a new-grad, I can go to school part time, as the last poster, TRR8021, stated. Once I've gained about a year of experience, then I can pick up my school and attend full time to get done a bit quicker. The only issue is that if I attend only part-time, it may affect the whole student loan issue (not quite sure how that works with a Graduate program).
I also would like to work in women's health, such as Postpartum. Since the economy has gone downhill lately, I've heard that hiring new grads, especially where I'm at, in Arizona, has become almost non-existent. What do we new-grad's need to do?
Where do I go and take my FNP exam once I graduate the FNP program?
Also, once I attain my FNP license, how do I attain my women's health specialty certification? Any websites I can be referred to?
Thank you for answering my tons of questions!
