  1. FNP work schedule
    My new position is Monday through Thursday 9-5 and a half day Friday. No weekends or call. After years of doing 3-4 12 hour shifts each week, I can't wait to be on a more "normal" schedule. ...

  2. New NP insecurities
    I tend to use Uptodate and epocrates, the latter more for quick pediatric info. Boston added anything else I would have said and then some. The reality is uptodate is going to be the go to...

  3. ANCC OR AANP
    For family I can't imagine the credential getting retired anytime soon from either body since it still remains the most common certification for NPs in the nation. The only realistic change I could...

  4. Taking the AANP FNP certification has anyone used APEA QBank
    I went to a fitzgerald review a month and half before I graduated and also shared a Barkley CD review with a classmate. The live review was great but I truthfully enjoyed the Barkley review more. ...

  5. Taking the AANP FNP certification has anyone used APEA QBank
    I loved the APEA Q bank when I was studying. The questions are really difficult (IMO harder than the real exam), and the rationales not only tell you why an answer is correct, but also why the other...

  6. ANCC OR AANP
    Initially? You get a little insurance in having a fallback exam should you be unsuccessful the first time around. The drawback is this is expensive. I've known 3 people that did this and when it was...

  7. "NPs don't practice medicine"
    At the end? No, there isn't a practical difference. Go into any medical office across our country and see MD's and NP's working side by side, where you often won't have any idea who is who because...

  8. 66% of Doctors Recommend Careers As Nurse Practitioner Instead
    Just got the same article via email from my Texas NP membership Mike. I actually sent it to a friend applying for NP school because it has great talking points for a personal statement. Can't say...

  9. Just got APRN license, still working as RN. Which license to sign with?
    I'm in your boat and and I sign as an RN since that is what I am hired as, and that is what my role is. I don't perform any roles or tasks of an APRN in my current job, and have not been given...

  10. NY post slams NPs
    You beat me to it. The speech I gave at my hooding ceremony touched directly on this. It called for us as new NP's and really all NP's to educate the general public about what we do, and how...

  11. Best prep specialty for FNP
    Everything and nothing. Like Mike said, the ER is a great place because you see a variety of things and will get lots of experience seeing skills (and likely working with an FNP depending on...

  12. Arizona vs. Florida: What factors to consider for a new DNP grad?
    That's fantastic input Juan. It makes sense that culture at individual facilities matters a lot more for ACNP's than it does for NP's that will be working in primary care or outpatient settings. ...

    Great advice as well Honeykrown. I used ExamEdge for the AANP exam, but am aware that they also have ANCC exams as well. Dollar for dollar, this is by far the cheapest practice exam resource out...

  14. Are FNP salaries in family practice really this low?
    Great points about salary requirements and info for new nurses Jules_A. I think one of the issues newer NP's have is they just don't know what they should be making, or what they should be...

    The APEA Q Bank allows you to study questions in specific body systems, as well as the non clinical questions. In terms of actual reviews, I feel like Barkley CD's content on the non-clinical...

    Wow that seems crazy that students ahead of you wouldn't be willing to share information with you. I feel like if I can make the road for someone coming after me a little less stressful, then go for...

  18. Are FNP salaries in family practice really this low?
    Thank you Boston, I truly agree with your statement. I went to a state public university that has an online MSN program, where I still had to meet several times during my program in person with...

    So show me what this has to do with Florida? I read your previous post regarding your move to Florida, which highlights the disparity in APRN practice from state to state very well, but this above I...

  20. Are FNP salaries in family practice really this low?
    So I guess resorting to name calling is what DNP's do when they can't produce a shred of evidence? Just because you perceive yourself to have more training and experience doesn't make it so. If...

  21. Are FNP salaries in family practice really this low?
    So because physicians don't have online schools, that means we shouldn't? Physicians go to school for 4 years, and then do a 3 year residency, maybe we should do that too. Maybe if physicians...

  22. FNP program options for low GPA
    Another decent approach to a bad GPA is to get an MSN in nursing education or administration, which aren't typically as competitive as NP programs, and then do your NP as a post masters certificate. ...

  24. Are FNP salaries in family practice really this low?
    I love seeing nurses belittling other nurses simply because they went to school online. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there isn't any research out there that states that an NP that goes to a brick...
