    Hi LoopsRN, Tadahh and I are bffs, so I will answer for her. She is an oncall RN for hospice. When you fill out the Georgetown application they want to know how many years of office work or primary care work experience you have (ped's clinic or OB clinic). It was weird because most nurses work in the acute hospital setting and not in a doctors office, right? So it seems like its a strike against you when your applying seeing as how you are putting down zero years experience. Tadahh said that the application process was intense for sure. Good luck to you. Make sure you check all around for good online programs. Georgetown must have a ton of applicants

    Thanks so much for the reply. I have only my ASN at this time, but work for some amazing surgeons and would love to be advanced practice in this field; I am struggling with what I will actually recoup financially should I choose this path, as we live in a rural setting and are quite the field is quite saturated with NPs/PAs at this time.

    Yea it is, and with the 2015 recommendation for a DNP the schools are flooded too. When I applied in 2009 I got into all three schools I applied to with no problems. Now ppl that I use to work with are getting turned down because there are so many applicants. Its unclear of what the future will hold financially for us advanced practice providers, but I say follow your heart. If you really have a burning desire to work in the field, go for it. The opportunities will be there. Maybe you can harvest veins or something in the OR. I know or Cardiovascular NPs here do that. Are you working on getting your BSN or are you planning on doing a RN to MSN/NP program?

    Vein harvest already falls under the scope of practice of my CSA, my credentialing for assisting in surgery. We don't do bypass in my hospital however, so I would need to travel the 90+ for any of those type of cases. I can direct bill insurance companies under my CSA (like a NP), which can be financially beneficial, but I would need to work in a area that has less than 75% medicare/medicaid, and we are at 78%. So instead of self employment, I am employed by the hospital. This DNP is exactly what started the fire under my pants to review my plans, lol! I gave myself the month of April/May to make a decision and June to start the application process, first for BSN. I would like to have the final choices of NP programs nailed down, so that my choices of BSN routes would apply appropriately. I am so scared of the financial investment this would involve, but if I don't do this now, I won't ever do it! The best, most financially cost effective decision may be to chose the CRNFA route, which would only require BSN, CRNOR (an operating room certification) and one more assisting exam. This would allow me to participate more in the patient's care during their stay in the hospital ( follow them inpatient post operatively, discharge instructions, etc)

    Well good for you. It sounds like you have a good plan. Will you make more money as a CRNFA? Will your job responsibilities change?

    Ok, so I goofed on the name. I meant Saint Joseph's College in Maine. Here is the link. It may work out great for you. Online nurse practitioner program | Saint Joseph's College of Maine

    Still no word from Georgetown for me. I think I am going to start my application for Frontier in the next few days.

    has anyone completed the Georgetown university online Adult NP program recently. How rigorous and flexible is it and would that school be recommended to others.

    Has anyone completed the ACNP program online at Georgetown? how were your clinicals set up? Admission counselor said they will find it but i would really like to hear from someone who is attending or was attending this school. It sounds too good to be true.
