  2. Ipad and FNP school!
    I'm only 25 years old. Yet, when I was in nursing school, I was the "cool kid" because I had a palm pilot to load my drug books onto! A year later, out comes the first iPhone! Technology is crazy....

    Hello all! I was wondering if you all could detail the time it took you from the date of passing your certification exam to the date you received your license. Especially for Texas NPs. I've...

  5. How old were you when you made the choice to become a NP?
    I was 11 when I made the choice to become a nurse practitioner. Seriously. My class had to do a "career fair." We applied at "jobs" with local volunteers. If we got the job, we could skip a day...

  6. Nurse Practitioner Pay in Federal BOP
    After doing some research, I found that that starting salary in Texas is around $80,000 in the prisons. I love that government salaries are open to the public... but I wasn't thrilled that each...

    Also, I'm looking for per diem agency RN jobs in corrections, but they don't have them in my area :(. I really am intrigued by correctional nursing. I just stumbled on the thought of it. I'm...

  8. CCHP certification exam
    Oh, thank you! I completely missed the part where you had to have the CCHP first. I would love to test for it, but I just saw how far away all of the sites are from me (Texas)! I have ordered the...

  9. CCHP certification exam
    Sorry to revive an old topic! I was wondering if you all took the CCHP or CCHP-RN? I've never worked in corrections, but have been strangely drawn to applying to a few positions when I'm certified...

  11. Nurse Practitioner Pay in Federal BOP
    I'm curious, what did your salary end up being? Did you take the job? I'm not sure why, but I'm kind of drawn to corrections when I pass my boards (waiting on that ATT). I've never worked...

  12. "Why didn't you go to medical school?"
    Sorry for the provocative title :) I'm mostly curious what your responses are when a patient asks you: "Why did you become an NP instead of a doctor?" & "What's the difference between a NP...

  17. St. Joseph's College: Maine
    There is no need to go to campus, although I highly recommend going during the summer's if you can. Well worth the cost of a flight and boarding. You can finish those courses a lot faster (wish I...

  18. References for clinicals??
    I use Epocrates. Not just the Rx part. You can purchase their disease database/labs/etc for 159/yr. It's amazing... differential diagnoses, treatment plans (specific plans), follow-up/monitoring,...

  20. St Joseph's College of Maine FNP program students
    Does anyone know who the clinical coordinator is now? And I've heard that SJCME rearranged clinicals to where adults are now first, and Peds/OB are later. Does anyone know this for sure?

  25. St Joseph's College of Maine FNP program students
    During the first two classes, you are only allowed to take one at a time (per my advisor, maybe this is just her philosophy). I spent a little two much time (for me) and didn't finish them for 5...
