I am looking into continuing my schooling. I currently have my BSN and I want to eventually do NP. The only problem is, all of the schools I look at, one of the requirements is 1 year of clinical experience/recommendation letters from floor nurses. I currently don't have hospital experience but was wondering is there a way to just take the core classes before being in the "NP program"?. I'd love to get started chipping away at the basic classes until I find a clinical job and can move forward. I live in Philadelphia so if anyone has any recommendations or tips, I'd appreciate it!
