  4. Orthopedic FNP Texas
    The point is that FNPs are trained and educated in PRIMARY CARE, not in acute care. You're right, the setting of clinic v hospital is not the important factor in the consensus model. The important...

  6. RGN from UK wants to move to USA
    EB3 is not a visa. It's a category of immigrant visa. There is a several year wait for an EB-3 category applicant. They can't help you anytime soon.

    I would advise you to come up with the money for at least a one-time appointment or consultation with an experienced immigration attorney. This will be much better and cheaper in the long run than...

    It's inappropriate for your family member's physician to tell you to do your own research - you're not his student and it's not his place.

  11. Full-time, part-time per hour without benefits
    Generally the same, although if the FT person is exempt/salaried they won't get any overtime, while the PT person probably will.

  12. All these NPs making less than RNs?
    In Pittsburgh at a large hospital system, first NP job (acute care not FNP) pay for my classmates and myself ranged from $32-40/hr. Some experienced/charge/overtime RNs definitely were offered less...

  17. Why does USA allow 2 year degree for RN's
    It seems you are conflating "quality" of program with "length" of program. In some other countries (such as mine), a bachelor degree in nursing is 3 years long. Doesn't mean we cover less nursing...

  21. Physician Extender ???

  25. How can I transfer my MSN degree from Philippines to USA?
    There's no way to "transfer" a foreign MSN to the USA. If you want your employer to consider it when you apply for positions, then you will have to supply an evaluation of it (such as equivalency...
