  1. Online Schools--Is it a "jungle out there"?
    I got my first bachelor's through an online school, which I was then able to use to get into an accelerated nursing program (I did science pre-reqs at a brick-and-mortar). My experience with them was...

  5. Does any NP regret becoming one
    I don't regret becoming an NP but I sometimes regret my choice of specialty. I still feel that pediatrics is the best fit for me in terms of personality and aptitude, but I wish I had gone with a...

  6. NP starting salaries in the Capital region of NY
    As a new grad RN I interviewed for a job in Albany Medical Center and the starting salary for an RN was about 50k, so 80k for an NP does not surprise me.

  7. New NP feeling so out of place in new job
    I have been working as an NP for about a year and a half. What you feel is completely normal. For a good six months I felt like I was play-acting. I checked everything with the MD. Now I check maybe...

  8. What is the best NP job you have seen???
    There is no single best NP job. The best job is the one that's the best fit for you. Sometimes you have to see the opportunities and use your job as a platform to get to where you want to be. You may...

  9. NP in Specialty
    I started out in a specialty straight from school. I don't think you ever need to be afraid to apply for a job even if you don't perfectly match the stated requirements. You don't know what the...

  10. Here's Why the Student Loan Market Is Completely Insane
    Another issue I find is that colleges have no real incentive to be accountable with OUR money. We found out in the last semester of nursing school that we were paying a "student activity" fee that...

  13. Am I really a NP if I do laser hair removal?
    I think it's telling that they hired an NP for the position and are paying you well for it. It must mean they want your skill and knowledge level for the job. As long as the job is giving you...

  14. Adult-Gerontology NP versus Family NP
    I don't see any real advantage in doing AGNP over FNP, as I think the length of training is similar, maybe 1-2 extra semesters for FNP. I did PNP and I really am only interested in working with...

  16. Which specialty compensated the most financially?
    If a person is headed for foreclosure it's more a sign of poor money management than a failure to choose the right NP track. If you live above your means you will be headed for foreclosure regardless...

    I finished my NP a year ago and I'm 40 now... I found a job within 3 months of graduation. People say I look younger than my age but I don't think it was a factor one way or the other. The doctor who...

  18. Teen to remain in state custody, in Boston Children's Hospital
    It seems there's evidence that Justina's parents were PITA's and didn't exactly endear themselves to the healthcare team caring for their daughter. However, I don't see that as grounds for...

  19. Best Stethoscope
    I work in pulmonology and I went ahead and bought the cardiology II to make sure I didn't miss any lung sounds. Honestly I haven't noticed a huge difference. It's not the stethoscope. Careful...

  20. Nurse practitioner job market in Detroit area?
    Thanks, I did look up hospital websites but there were very few listings for NP, let alone pediatric NP. I would even consider doing bedside nursing but I'd probably have to take a 40% pay cut...

  22. Nurse practitioner job market in Detroit area?
