  1. Petition to Force NP Programs to Provide Preceptors
    I agree with the OP. The reality is that over-saturation is a serious concern. The fact that we have tons of online NP programs that accept everyone regardless of GPA, no GRE requirement, no...

  2. NP curriculum isn't standardized?
    This is the problem, though. There are a significant number of NPs who think that there is no problem. They think online education from for-profit schools with 90%+ acceptance rates is just fine. I...

  3. Nurses are Not Doctors
    What a tempest in a teapot. The level of hubris, offense, and paranoia displayed by our 'colleagues' on that other forum has got to be the funniest thing I've seen in a long while. First of all, NPs...

  6. Pmhnp hiring question
    Hi Twinkerrs, Do you know what area of the country is actively recruiting psych NPs? From what I've read the west (North and South) is pretty good, I've also heard good things about the Northeast....

  7. Any Psych Nurse Practitioner's out there?
    That's such a bummer about how tough things are in the South. Correct me if I'm wrong, but did you attend an online program? It sounds like many of your classmates were spread throughout the South?...

  8. Challenging Relationships with Doctors
    Honestly, if the docs were trying to see psych patients in 5 minute intervals so they can rake in as much cash as possible, then yeah, I can see why your organization is trying to get rid of them. I...

  9. Any Psych Nurse Practitioner's out there?
    Hi Carlyjo, I think your post would be a lot more helpful if we knew what part of the country you're in and around where you and your classmates have been applying? It seems like a lot of NP jobs...

  10. PMHNP- advice needed!
    It's up to you. If you know PMHNP is your absolute goal, then I see no reason to put your life on hold. Plus getting school out of the way sooner, rather than later, is always a good idea (you never...

    I agree with the others, UW, hands down. Beautiful school, lots of opportunities, Seattle is awesome... okay I am biased because I went to UW for my undergrad and I loved it. It's a great place! In...

  14. Path to Psych NP
    Oh, my bad. I didn't see that you were planning on keeping your job. Yeah, the direct entry programs require full-time schooling, especially during the accelerated RN year. You will be expected to...

  15. Path to Psych NP
    Direct entry psych NP program, where you do an accelerated RN and then do directly into the NP program. Most programs take 3 years, but a few can have you done in two (Vanderbilt and BC). This is...

  16. Why your local physician group is wary of hiring a new graduate nurse practitioner
    Until nursing starts valuing NP education/strong clinical training over RN experience, this problem will never go away. I have read countless posts on this site about how you don't learn anything in...

  17. Please help w/ path?
    Yeah, I've been seeing several people on this site recommend getting FNP over PMHNP lately because it is supposedly easier to get a job as an FNP... I do not know where people are getting their...

    Uh, I'm not sure what "proof" you are looking for? Do you mean oversupply leading to falling salaries? I believe both law and clinical psychology are good examples of this problem. Both fields...

    I appreciate your thoughtful posts, but I'm going to respectfully disagree with you, trauma. The oversupply of NPs (fueled by for profit programs with low standards for entry) is a huge threat to the...

  21. Requiring Bedside Experience for NP
    I also don't understand arguments against residencies. All of the new grad NPs I know (and I know many) feel that it would be a huge asset. I don't know of one NP who thinks the clinical hours in...

  22. Requiring Bedside Experience for NP
    I think if we want to improve NP education and the standing of our field we need to approach it in two ways: 1. Yes, we should have schools with higher standards to ensure intelligence or,...

  23. Direct entry to NP or RN to NP?
    There is no law that you must work as an RN before NP school (or during NP school). Will it help? Certainly. If you can't find an RN job should you put your life on hold if NP is your ultimate goal?...

  25. Does School Really Matter?
    Seriously? Just take the flipping GRE. It is a fairly easy test and the standards in nursing are pretty low anyway, even CRNA schools let in people with very average scores. Just buy a prep book and...
