  2. Nurse Corps Loan Repayment 2014!
    I am also playing the waiting game. I applied to HRSA (NHSC) last year and was denied because of a low HRSA score at one of the two sites that I work at. HRSA just recently raised the scores at both...

  5. Am I Missing Something?
    I would also say that I've learned that sometimes, the diagnosis wasn't "missed", it was an incidental finding. I've caught a few alpha thalassemia's when I first started and the MD would always ask...

  6. FNP the good, bad and ugly (if any)??
    I'm only 10 months into my career and my response may be different as I work in a HRSA site. Would I choose another profession? No. The good thing about being a FNP is you are always a nurse...

  7. Loan Repayment-National Health Service Corps
    May I ask what your HRSA score is? Mine is 19 and maybe it's too low.

  8. Loan Repayment-National Health Service Corps
    I applied this year. I know the first disbursement should be Sept 30th. But when will they tell me if I'm even approved or not? I keep looking at my app status online and it says "under review" Has...

  10. BSN to DNP
    When you get a chance, look up International Review Board (IRB). It is very difficult to get IRB to approve studies on children. With that being said, if it is non-invasive, such as looking at...

  11. Salary and pay question for new NP
    I am a FNP/DNP and in my experience, you will still be considered a "new grad" whether you have a DNP or not. So, initially, try not to get caught up in the credentials as far as pay goes. Believe...

    Correct... according to this chart. Just went to a conference and was told newer recommendations from ASCCP will be cytology q 5 years.

  14. Pap guidelines...
    I agree with the above post. Evidence based practice is the way to go. Current recommendations are also leaning towards Pap smears every 5 years for women >30 yrs of age if she had 3 normal pap...

  15. BSN to DNP
    Not to sound like a tape recorder but as stated above... My advice is to start thing of your area of interest now and work on your Literature Review as soon as you are taught how to do it. Then you...

  16. Scheduling?
    Glad to know this is not the norm and there is a light at the end of the tunnel post loan repayment. This is my first NP job. Great learning experience. But I was beginning to think that if this is...

  17. Scheduling?
    I'm currently working for a FQHC as an FNP. Right now, we are currently seeing scheduled patients about every 20 minutes. We have a 40% no show rate. For that reason, the Medical Director enforced...

  18. NP..How do pts adress you?
    I have a DNP but I say "Hi, I'm Lovanurse and I'm a nurse practitioner" I may address myself as Dr. Lovanurse in the future, who knows? But for now, it just feels right for patients to address me by...

    I'm not sure if this reply was to me or the OP? But I agree.

  20. "That's not your job."
    I personally think it creates complacency. I'm all for teamwork as we were all nurses FIRST, before we became Advanced Practice Nurses. But you will eventually create a situation where the staff will...

    I don't have a contract either. But whatever the Medical Director and I discussed at the interview, was put in writing on my offer letter.

  23. Surge in MDs / DOs, what happens to the NPs?
    If this is true, I'm not sure that all of these new physicians will go into primary care. The salary is too low to pay back physician loans. That is where non-physician providers fill in the gaps.

  24. Failed the AANP and ANCC
    Hmmm... not sure which test you bought. They offer 25 different exams for RNs and NPs (including AANP and ANCC.) This will be my last post on this because people will start thinking I work for this...

  25. Failed the AANP and ANCC
    I was skeptical also. That's how I made the mistake of only buying one exam at a time (which costs more in the long run). But I can only give my word that the site is legit and as far as ANCC goes,...
