  1. Travel from home to work
    I travel to facilities to do wound care. My usual commute is about an hour to the first facility. Sometimes it's 30 minutes between buildings. Then another hour home. It's not my dream set up,...

  2. All these NPs making less than RNs?
    I'm in Southern NJ, not too far from Philly. I made 25-35/hr as an RN (doctor's offices and prison, never hospital). I make WAY more as an NP. I have an FNP but I'm mostly working with adults in a...

  3. Physician Extender ???
    To be honest, I was never bothered by the term mid-level provider. I don't feel like it speaks about RNs or LPNs at all, only PAs and NPs, who generally have a shorter education than their physician...

  4. Does any NP regret becoming one
    I've only been an NP for a few months, but I must say that it is probably the best decision I ever made. I feel extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to go to school with my husband's support...

  5. PAP question
    Don't worry, even the best clinician won't get the cervix every time. I wonder if you'll get to see that person's results to see if you got the transition zone. I was always excited to see how I...

  6. Nurse Practitioners/student nurse practitioners
    I just used free apps on my phone such as Medscape or Epocrates. I did buy the EMRA Abx app for $15. It's ok, but not as useful as I had hoped. There is no room in my pocket for another book, so...

  7. Shadowing for np job
    I think it's wonderful to shadow first. Every place is different. I'm so glad that I shadowed with two different providers (same type of job, different companies). One was a much better fit for me.

  9. NJ NP's
    In what area of NJ are you going to practice? There is an interesting divide between South Jersey/Philly area, South Jersey shore area, and Central/North Jersey. You may want to look at smaller...

    I've been on a few interviews. I won't say where since I haven't decided on a position yet, but the jobs are out there, even for a new grad. I am not perusing primary care, so most of the jobs I'm...

    South Jersey FNP here! I know what you mean about people not being from this area on this forum. It's good to get to know one another. I just graduated, too.

  15. Failed ANCC
    It's going to be a random array of questions with each test. However, the "nonclinical" questions will be about 20 or more % of your exam every time, so study up! My school highly recommended the...

  16. Correctional Nursing - can any one tell me about it
    Just Google the NJ and PA board of nursing for licensure information. You can print out the applications there. Know that NJ is VERY slow, so start your application now. You'll need a passport...

  17. How far ahead of graduation can one start ?
    I took the AANP. I tested 2 weeks after graduation. I don't think you can test before you finish the program, but you can send them preliminary transcripts to get the ball rolling. You'll have to...

  20. Practice exams
    I used www.familynpprep.com for AANP. I found their questions to be more geared towards ANCC even though I chose the AANP set. They have Family and AG tests. I also used the e-book from Physician...

  21. Why the NP degree will be the next MBA with 7 simple, quick reasons
    My husband has an MBA and I have an FNP. I can't disagree on all of these points. However, I must say that my MSN was WAY harder to achieve than his MBA. I do wish there were less schools about,...

  22. Petition to Force NP Programs to Provide Preceptors
    I would sign this petition. I don't know about other professions, but it seems terrible that students should have to find their own preceptor. What if they can't find someone, or have to make due...

  24. Littman II vs Ultrascope OR other favourite stethoscope?
    Gotta love my Littmann II. Lightweight and great acoustics. I got mine from Craigslist, new in the box for $50. I had an Ultrascope in nursing school, which I also liked. However, I think the...

    I took the live Fitzgerald, which I found very helpful. I also listened to the Barkley cds, which were much more entertaining. I think either one would be fine. I don't have any experience with...
