  2. Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification
    I just asked one of my instructors about this and she had not heard of it. I am anxious to see how it turns out. It seems like there should be some time of credentialing or certification to...

  4. ACNP without research, theory, etc
    It is a very frustrating situation and I don't understand why the PTB and program directors are not listening. For you and your fellow students to have complained about the same deficiencies we, as...

  5. ACNP without research, theory, etc
    SFDRN, I have to agree with you. After a year of full time course work, I'm finally into my specialty courses, (ACNP w/ critical care focus). I thought I would finally get into the meat and...

  6. Discouraged NP Student
    Don't pay it any mind. I received so much encouragement from the docs I worked with when applying to NP programs. Several offered to write letters of recommendation for me, while others offered to...

  7. Northwestern Memorial Hospital Interview
    May have been a blessing in disguise. I have not heard anything positive about Northwestern lately (and that includes current and former employees). I've also heard that it is not the most...

  8. RN-MSN? (no BSN)--bad move?!
    A lot of it depends upon the facility you would work in and their magnet aspirations. Some places require their nursing leadership to have a BSN or a MSN while others will accept an ADN with a...

  10. FIRST travel assignment...afraid I have been low balled!!!
    Different assignments/locations pay different rates. I was quoted a take home of just under $1200/wk for a position in Ft. Wayne, IN that included housing stipend, but that area is also notorious...

  13. Primary Care vs Specialty
    As long as the MD is willing to teach and nurture you as a novice, I would take the job over holding out for something else. A bird in the hand is better than 2 in the bush, as they say! I think...

  14. DPN/Nurse Practitioner vs. PA/Physician's Assistant
    I think you have to keep in mind where you want to practice and the laws in that state. For instance, PAs were given prescriptive authority in IN in 2008, while NPs had prescriptive authority here...

  17. Unpaid internship to gain NP experience
    If you can afford to take an unpaid residency/internship, then why not? I would also take the time network with the surgeons you work with on a daily basis. Let them know you're an ACNP and looking...

  18. FNP working in hospital settings besides ED
    I would not look to a hospital to protect my license. I can't tell you how many time I was given a telemetry RN (I've had to refuse med/surg RNs) to fill a shortage in the ICU while working as an...

    It was a 7 credit hour semester long course taught by a chemist with a PhD. The course was brutal and was known as the "weed out" course in our program. In fact, all of my science courses were...
