  1. Hate "Midlevel"
    You troll too hard. What's actually sad about your post is MD's spend all that time in school, and an NP with some online classes and 2-3 years towards a masters degree meets and often exceeds that...

  2. Hate "Midlevel"
    THANK YOU. My presentation for my oral boards revolves around a paper of this very nature. There is nothing "Midlevel" about NP's. Head to head with physicians we are equal or better on numerous...

  3. Terrible day at clinicals
    I read most of your post and thought "we've all been there" in terms of feeling frustrated or stupid in clinical. Your one mistake not examining the ears wasn't a big deal, and you even called...

  4. Boycott schools that make you find your own preceptors
    I absolutely agree with zmansc on this one. While I think schools that provide preceptors are ultimately a better option, I loved having to find my own preceptors. I got to choose people I knew and...

  5. Does any NP regret becoming one
    Just out of curiosity what region of the country do you work where nurses are treated this way? I've been a traveller all over the country and am yet to experience a hospital system or group of...

  6. Does any NP regret becoming one
    I apologize if I misunderstood your post. When you said that you disagreed that "WE" (meaning all NP's) are afforded more respect, it sounds like you are implying that NP's everywhere aren't...

  7. Pts want to see a doctor
    If they want to see a physician let them. Articulate that you can provide the same service and address their problem, but ultimately they are free to choose if they don't mind waiting longer. I...

  8. Does any NP regret becoming one
    This is your own anecdote and does not represent NPs or even nursing as a whole. Not feeling respected or feeling respected has more to do with where you are working versus what you are doing. ...

  9. Does any NP regret becoming one
    While I'm sure there are some NP's out there with career regret, I feel like most career regret in nursing likely stems from job regret. When you look at most peoples reasoning for their career...

  10. New NP feeling so out of place in new job
    While I am not yet an NP and willl be graduating in early December, just about all my NP friends and NP preceptors have told me that I will feel like a clueless chicken with my head cut off for the...

  11. Failed AANP 2014
    You sound like an anomoly that probably was stressed too much on exam day. If you were really doing that well on practice exam it's hard to understand why you failed other than nerves. I say go for...

  12. What is the best NP job you have seen???
    This is my dream job. My wife is a Fil-Am, and with an NP salary over there you would live like a king. Although I prefer the visayas to Manila, it would be sweet none the less.

  13. Why you shouldn't become a nurse practitioner
    Likely based on their own limited personal experience. While I agree that having solid nursing experience during NP school is useful, the closer I get to graduation (3 months away), the more I...

  14. Improving NP Education
    I go to a large public university FNP school online (graduate in 3 months), and would have loved in-depth anatomy and less theory BS. I also would have loved a short class that just covers very...

  15. Dear practitoners, quick question on your school
    I hate to break it to you OP, but unless you're your own boss, no matter what field you're in, your going to deal with a lot of BS. Being your own boss in medicine brings it's own awful headaches. ...

  16. AANP Certification Exam
    Thanks again for the great information. I do use the AANP exam questions from Exam Edge and a friend of mine has the ANCC questions, and the reality is they are both taken from the same question...

  17. AANP Certification Exam
    Thank you for your study prep info. I'm glad you mentioned the Exam Edge questions were very specific. I graduate in December, bought a package of 20 exams, and the few that I do seem really...

  18. Online schools and testing...
    UTEP. I'm unsure of the most recent class to graduate, but the previous FNP class had a higher than the national average of 86% passage rate. On the anecdotal side, I haven't met a nurse from any...

  20. Online schools and testing...
    My university is online and does not use a proctor. We really don't have exams either, only quizzes. We do have to turn in all of our big papers to "Turnitin" to check for plagiarism though.

  22. NP to DNP - trying to decide
    Probably a smart decision to hold off for now. I feel the same way. The DNP is something I desire for only personal growth and I know it really doesn't do much for my career. In a few years when I'm...

  23. RN Experience helpful to aspiring APRN
    I'm in the opposite boat as you, where I had no peds experience, but had lots of adult experience when starting my rotations. My program requires 720 total hours, with 33% of that coming from peds. ...

    Tough situation. A couple of questions... Is 30k the total cost of the program? How many hours do you need to graduate? I ask because I am finishing my FNP program, still work full-time, and...

  25. FNP to DNP, really?
    At this point the DNP seems to be a path for those who simply want a terminal degree, or for those with long term academia aspirations. I personally wouldn't mind having one, but it would largely be...
