  3. Did your school's reputation affect getting hired?
    Frontier is an excellent school. Others have given you great advice about networking. I would also add that if you can, try and do as many clinical/patient hours as possible-even over and above...

  6. Looking back, would you obtain NP credential??
    I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I've been practicing for 5 years and have never regretted my decision. There were sacrifices, but it was worth it in the long run.

  7. Stressing out....about to start my first clinical rotation!
    Take a deep breath. You are not expected to be a fountain of knowledge at this stage of the game. The best thing you can do is practice your physical assessment skills before you start. You don't...

  8. Favorite Pharm References
    I use Epocrates a lot. It's a mobile app for Android or iPhone. I also like UptoDate as a great all around reference, but it's expensive.

  9. PCP burnout...
    I worked as a PCP for 3 years and was pretty burned out in that short time. I think it was a function of where I worked, and the high needs patient population I saw. We had 15 minutes per...

  10. Shameless Request: What is the easiest NP program to go to? Botox Nurse seeks easy NP
    So that 98% acceptance rate is not actually fact. I called a friend who is on the faculty at Simmons and she told me the acceptance rate is closer to 35%. Simmons is an extremely reputable school,...

  11. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    Matthew-with all due respect, you sound like a child. It's very difficult to find anyone who personally attacks another poster credible. You are entitled to your opinion. I don't think anyone...

  12. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    If you read carefully, you would see that I did not say that at all. I said you do not need a medical school education to be a good provider. NPs provide comparable care to MDs in many patient...

  13. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    This is really insulting. You're inferring that this is all that the poster did, completely dismissing her nursing and NP education and training. No one here is against improving NP education. ...

  15. Psychiatric Nurse NP without R.N. experience
    I'm an FNP, not a Psych NP, who was in the same boat. I was unable to get a part time or per diem RN job while in NP school, so I just went straight through and right into a NP job. I did just...

  16. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    Actually, a previous poster did say that no one sees getting into NP school as an accomplishment. Again, this is an opinion of someone who is not an NP, so I take it with a huge grain of salt. ...

  17. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    I don't believe nurses are hostile to more education at all. ANPs have to do continuing education to keep our board certification current. I know many NPS who participate in research, and many more...

  21. Why your local physician group is wary of hiring a new graduate nurse practitioner
    My experience has been the the exact opposite of the OPs harangue. I have yet to have a negative experience with an MD who thinks NPs are a less evolved and less intelligent species. Where do you...

    I had to take oral comps at the end of my program. One month before, we were given 5 questions to prepare, on a variety of topics. The panel could ask us any 2 questions out of those five. They...

  23. Part-Time NP Programs: Opinions?
    First of all, no NP should come out of any program feeling all ready to practice on their own. You graduate as a novice NP, no matter how many years of RN experience you may have. A new grad NP...

  24. Part-Time NP Programs: Opinions?
    Totally agree. The OP is making assumptions about something in which he/she has no experience. Going to school part time is not a reflection on the student's intelligence, desire to work hard,...

  25. Is it worth it to get my NP?
    I went into nursing in my mid 40s and did go the NP route. I went to school full time (brick and mortar) and worked 14 hours a week on weekends. It was the right decision for me. I love being an...
