  1. Earning potential
    I was hired as a new grad to an urgent care with a base of $95k and production bonus. Most of the midlevels at this practice easily clear $130k+ a year. The topper is we only work 12 days a month. If...

  2. AANP and ANCC Merger
    As our licensing exams should be. This is the reason why I took the AANP FNP exam. We are training to be clinicians right? I didn't want to fill my head with the mumbo jumbo the ANCC requires on...

  4. Passed FNP AANP!
    Took it this morning and passed. I found the test to be rather uncomplicated. Most of the answers were very obvious. 80% of the test seemed to consist of answer choices where only one really made any...

  6. Who has both AANP and ANCC certifications? Should I?
    I am taking my AANP this Saturday and the facility I got a job at doesn't even know or cares what the difference between them both are. If I am licensed through the state, that's all they care about....

  9. AANP website 92% Fitzgerald 75-80% am I ready?
    I am sitting for mine on Saturday. I scored 80% on the AANP quiz and have done pretty horrible on a few of the fitzgerald quizzes. Its all relative and is totally dependent on which questions you get...

  10. AANP exam from AANP website-similar to actual exam?
    Good stuff, I scored a 80% and thought the practice test was pretty easy... The ones I missed were those 50/50 ones, and I chose the wrong answer lol. I felt like it was pretty straight forward stuff...

  12. Sick of the Certs!!!!!  Just let 'em be an NP!
    I couldn't agree more with everything said. Its ridiculous the amount of complete BS entails NP training and licensing. No one cares about all those letters behind your name. It doesn't make you look...

  16. Has anyone went off and did their own clinical time?
    I am in my last semester, graduate in May. I have been busting out my hours so to speak. I really wanna work in the ER, so I want to do everything I possibly can to get there.

  17. Getting a job in the ER.
    I hear ya, the ER I worked at as a RN isn't really hiring right now due to the saturation of the market in my area. So basically I have to go out and get a job at a ER without them really knowing me.

    WOW, I guess I am unable to comprehend what I am reading. You know what, you need to get off your high horse. Who cares that you spent an extra year doing some capstone project to get your DNP....

  22. NP..How do pts adress you?
    NP's should never introduce themselves as Dr.'s in the clinical setting, even if they have a DNP. I just say, "Hey, I am Mike a nurse practitioner. What brought you in today?" Most of the time they...

  23. Has anyone went off and did their own clinical time?
    Thanks, thats what I was curious about. I have spent some days in the ER, and the PA I am following is treating it as a "shadowing" experience. He lets me evaluate, do a quick H&P, and tell him what...

  24. Has anyone went off and did their own clinical time?
    Just curious if anyone out there has done a few specialty hours in like the ED or ortho and just didn't count it towards their clinical hours? FNP programs obviously won't let you get your hours in...
