  2. NP boot camp in PA, reviews?
    No, you don't - it's a giant PITA to get NP status there, and the scope of practice is VERY limited compared to the US.

    That's not why people can't find a job. Anyone can find a job. They just can't find the one they want in the area they want. People want different things in a job. If earning the most amount of money...

  12. ACNP or AGACNP? Help?

  13. More work, no pay increase..
    I bet he is appropriately compensated too. He chose to do medicine and accepted those hours. You did not. However if you are not even being paid what a new NP is you definitely should push it....

  14. FNP in a non-clinical position

  17. Graduating in July and pregnant...advice deeply appreciated

  21. NP specialty? TX? Advice?
    It is not accurate to say that - if you are certified as "adult acute care", you can only see adults, age as defined by your state. You'd have to do both ACPNP and ACNP to be able to see both. ...
