  1. Too direct?
    I am very direct, many patients have told me, "thanks for not bs'ing me". It's all in your delivery..put it in a way that doesn't say, you're fat - diet and exercise, you've made your cholesterol be...

  2. Angelo State University FNP
    That all depends on if you can find a clinic that is open saturdays. Will be difficult. I did clinicals in Austin and when I couldn't find preceptors I went to Abilene and Albany, tx. Working full...

  3. Am I really a NP if I do laser hair removal?
    What I don't understand is we as FNP's learn nothing about laser hair removal in our programs. These big chains promote RN's and NP's as if we have extensive training in aesthetics.

  4. New Grad Locum Tenens
    I didn't think any companies used new grads. They usually want someone that requires little to no training to just jump right in (i.e. This is the EMR we use, and these will be your exam rooms - GO).

  5. Level of comfort in practice?
    Practicing as a NP is nothing like practicing like a RN, so yes, you will feel like a novice again once you land your first position. You will take an advanced health assessment, advanced...

    CRNA school is VERY tough. I would be surprised if a 3.0 would even be enough with all the qualified applicants.

  7. Anxious about Starting FNP School in the Fall
    Did your nursing school not require a 3.0 to progress too? It's likely the unknown that your fear is stemming from. NP is a different world than RN. You will do fine if you put great effort into your...

  9. Drug Rep Hassles
    The only problem I have had are the ones who finally catch me and want to go in depth about their new study when I am busy. If you want to talk for more than 2 minutes a meeting should be scheduled,...

  10. Stupid Questions, can someone help?
    You cannot prescribe as a student. In texas, even as a "graduate NP", you cannot Rx. We actually don't even have that status anymore. (Do still have graduate RN). You have to have everything cosigned...

    I've posted this before, but there is a study out there somewhere that I read while I was in my program on the transition from RN to NP. The study showed the transition is actually smoother if you...

    I have heard it is not easy to switch program to program. Most grad programs will only accept a certain number of graduate level course/hours. If it is same school, I don't think its too big of an...

  17. In process FNP need help with job now
    In my experience Doctor's office do not hire many RN's. They can get away with that position being filled by a medical assistant (much lower salary). I don't think an office would hire you as an RN...

  18. What Must I do???
    Your GPA will definitely need to come up. I would make sure your science GPA and over all GPA is at least a 3.0 when all is said and done. I would probably not take the GRE until you were a few...

  19. FNP vs Acute care NP
    They are completely different as the title states. Acute care NP's I see a lot in ED's and ICU's. Acute care NP's learn way more physical skills (chest tubes, intubation, etc) as FNP's do not learn...

  25. Nurse Practitioner School vs Medical School
    The programs are going to be completely different from each other. RN/NP school will be more flexible than Med school. This also depends on where you wanna be in 8-10 years. I'll be honest. I'm 27...
