  1. South University online NP?
    Yep! I had everything in writing with them, and I was so glad I did because I was able to forward the rep's letters. No one would have believed me if I hadn't, as it seemed too unbelievable to be...

  2. Letters of recommendation
    Rachel, hopefully schools are beginning to realize that. Georgetown rep told me to simply write the names of the recommenders, and after app submitted, request the letters. Of course, everything I...

  3. South University online NP?
    I specifically asked if South allowed in my state and I received a yes in writing. Sent transcripts, essays, rec letters. They insisted on my SSN, though I told them I wasn't doing financial aid....

  5. current OR nurse with previous Med-Surg experience
    I would go back, but for a different reason than you might think. I find myself better suited to the NP role as the decision-maker/case manager for pts on the floor than in the OR. Of course, your...

  7. Philadelphia Hospitals - Charting/Pay
    Tempo, some PA health systems are heavily unionized, which will affect pay. Most of these systems have some form of EMR, but some are more advanced than others. Also, some are magnet while others...

  8. Any NP programs that use the medical model?
    Summit, I wondered the same. I know in CA, NPs and PAs are being trained together. No additional information, sorry!

  9. Drexel Fall 2013 Decisions
    Thank you for your input! I am fortunate in that I work with NPs whom have graduated from all the PA schools, and each has it pros and cons. Workload actually is different at different schools - I...

  10. Drexel Fall 2013 Decisions
    Hi Neuron! I meant that colleges outside of PA do not always serve PA students (or all states for that matter), and it seems one less issue to simply stay in-state. I thought it deceitful and...

  11. Drexel Fall 2013 Decisions
    Neuron (I like your name :)), supposedly nothing is being sent until May, but I thought maybe someone heard differently or received a notification. As for the program, I've heard very rigorous, find...

  13. Finding the right NP program
    Anne, I learned the hard way that you get what you pay for. I thought I was smart to get into a local program on the cheaper side. I also got out as quickly as I got in. I really wanted Georgetown...

  14. Regional or National ?
    I made the mistake of entering a MSN program with a school that is NLN, not CCNE. What a joke! Instructor made up the syllabus as she moved along, discussed her family the entire class, not enough...

  15. What's the job market like in Florida right now? New grad.
    Blue, get ready for sticker shock - pay in Florida will be drastically less than NY, for the same job. I relocated to FL from PA, and moved back up north again. Job market was bad when I left, but...

  17. Accreditation and Recognition outside of florida
    I agree, be sure to stay with accredited programs... Got my BSN in FL from accredited program, moved to PA, found a job but that was over 7 years ago. I would never be able to do the same in this...

  18. Am I crazy or what to drive 90 miles each way for first nursing job
    I had to laugh at the commute question/look of surprise, too! However, from their point of view, they want to be sure if they hire you, you won't quit in a month because the commute is too far. ...

  19. Is going straight into a DNP crazy or great?
    Do it now! Like you, I always knew I'd go back once I got my BSN. It ended up being years later. In the time I spent wondering about going back, I could have just done it! I know once I complete my...

  21. Physician Abbreviation - Can't Read This One
    I'm not acting on anything and this is not an order - I'm only making up a form and the doctor is away for the next 2 weeks. I thought it was something very common and I wanted to get the form done...

  22. Physician Abbreviation - Can't Read This One

  23. Magnet Sites and Nursing Communication
    Magnet requires communication, and I wondered how Magnet sites are achieving that, given that most nurses are not given email accounts. I'm also seeking an online method exclusively. Thank you!
