  1. Direct Entry MSN vs Nurse Practioner MSN
    DNP is not and will not be required for NP licensure. It's only a recommendation made by nursing schools deans and faculty (hmm I wonder why)

  2. ANCC - Family psych NP - just passed
    Congrats!! I'm taking it in a year. I haven't looked too much into it, but I do find it strange how much non-clinical material is on the exam. And there are non-psych primary care questions as well,...

  4. Direct Entry MSN vs Nurse Practioner MSN
    Don't forget about Boston College. BC and Vanderbilt are the only direct entry PMHNP programs that are 2 years. All the others are 3 years. I got into Vandy, BC, Yale, MGH, and a few others. I wanted...

  5. Austin, TX job market?
    What state are you in? Please tell us so that I can tell everyone I know never to move there, lol Wow but seriously. As more NPs accept low offers, it kills the job market for everyone in that area....

  7. Austin, TX job market?
    65k?? Wow. Please do not take a salary that low! 80k should be your minimum as a new grad. Also you didn't mention your specialty which makes a big difference. Psych NPs make considerably more than...

  8. NP Programs that take 1-1.5 years? (such as an accelerated program)
    So you have a BSN or you don't? You could go to Vanderbilt's prespecialty program or Boston College's direct entry MSN program with just your Biology BS and come out an NP in 2 years. I'm currently...

  12. Best route to take for aspiring Psych NP
    Hey there, sent you a PM with some advice. In short, you seem competitive for direct entry programs, assuming you can do well on GREs, get As in pre-reqs, write a good personal statement, and get...

  13. Pls advise! Windows vs Android/iPhone for student NPs
    I also second the recommendation against windows phone. The apps are just too limiting. You want Android or iOS for the large selection of apps. I'm particularly partial to Android since I don't like...

  14. NP Preceptor needed
    This is unfortunate. Don't go to a school that doesn't provide preceptors. This should be a top priority for all NP students. Your attendance in these programs only supports such practices

  15. Why the NP degree will be the next MBA with 7 simple, quick reasons
    Same thing happened with me when I took it, except I got emails from psych programs since I put that down as my major and interest. ETS is such a joke. They charge you $200 to take the test and then...

  16. Applying to direct entry NP schools
    I second the suggestion to retake GRE. Look at the Sparknotes guide to the writing section and follow that formula. Pm me if you want more advice. I got a 4.0 and 1370 the first time I took it and...

  17. 12 Month BSN or 15 Month MSN?
    This is not an NP degree. There are MSN programs out there that basically leave you at the same level as an RN but with a Masters. It's called a generalist degree, same as CNL Clinical Nurse Leader...

  18. 2.91 GPA as Bio major to Grad-Entry NP Chances?
    Unfortunately that GPA is pretty low. If you take more undergrad classes, you can boost that up to a 3.0+ which would help. But honestly unless you have a 4.0 in your pre-reqs, a very high GRE score...

  19. Direct Entry Admissions Chances Psych
    Maybe I can help. I applied this year to 6 direct entry PMHNP programs and got into all of them. I think you have a good shot as long as you raise your GRE scores. My cum GPA was similar (3.3) and I...

  21. Best Cell Phone for Practitioners
    Hehe it's just a matter of preference. IMO pure Android looks much sleeker and runs better. Samsungs UI looks like it was designed by 12 year olds. This is why if you utter the word Touchwiz to any...
