  4. To remain as an RN w MSN or to proceed to be an FNP
    This comes with experience and practice. No one comes out of NP school ready to take on complex patients based on what's in your head. You look up stuff, you confer with colleagues. You see the...

  5. Who gets a home nebulizer, and why?
    I work in an asthma and allergy practice and we frequently rx nebulizers, for the very reasons that Trauma stated. In addition, the moisture provided by the nebulizer is often beneficial. I have a...

  6. To remain as an RN w MSN or to proceed to be an FNP
    You should not be comfortable with the FNP role after only one semester. You haven't had the training or experience to gain any comfort level. I think you'll see that your classes do apply once you...

  9. Did any of you get your NP position without prior RN experience?
    Eternity112- I disagree with your implication that Direct Entry/Masters Entry students are looking for the "easy way out". On the contrary-these programs are very challenging and time consuming, and...

  10. NP's: do you give some patients your cell number?
    Nope...never.....My practice operates as a team and patients can always get the on-call person if they have concerns. I always *67 before calling a patient back when I'm paged. I love my patients,...

  11. Soon to be NP. Nervous.
    I would be concerned if you weren't nervous. I remember feeling like a total imposter when I graduated. It took a while to gain confidence in myself. When job hunting, look for a supportive...

  12. Fed Up with Pain Management
    I agree with Boston FNP-this is a tough job. In fact, opioid and benzo abusers are what made me leave primary care for a specialty where controlled substances are not indicated. Does your practice...

  17. Job offer help
    Hi- I'm not sure this is such a great deal. Every position I've held or applied to paid for malpractice insurance and full licensing fees. $300 wouldn't even cover my state fees, let alone DEA...

  18. Physician Extender ???
    I hate the term "physician extender". My boss called me that once, and only once. I reminded him that I have my own license, my own patients, and I was not an extension of him. He's very old...

  21. Prevalence of Christians in the field of nursing
    I respectfully disagree. Going into work is not a mission opportunity. You are not there to bring people to Christ. Not everyone is a Christian nor wants to be one. You are there to do a job that...

    I wentcto school full time and worked part time. I made a lot of sacrifices to do this, but it was worth it. I went to Boston College. You can do the DE program part time and still finish in about 4...

  24. NP vs DNP
    Have you looked into Direct Entry NP programs? That way you can do your BSN and MSN (NP track) in one fell swoop. There is no consensus on whether a DNP will be mandatory for NP practice. Many...
