  1. Questions for nurse practitioners
    I went to school full time, worked part time, and had 2 pre-teens at the time. School was very rigorous and really didn't leave me any time for socializing. I sometimes missed school and sports...

  3. Prevalence of Christians in the field of nursing
    I respectfully disagree. Going into work is not a mission opportunity. You are not there to bring people to Christ. Not everyone is a Christian nor wants to be one. You are there to do a job that...

  5. NP vs DNP
    I wentcto school full time and worked part time. I made a lot of sacrifices to do this, but it was worth it. I went to Boston College. You can do the DE program part time and still finish in about 4...

  6. NP vs DNP
    Have you looked into Direct Entry NP programs? That way you can do your BSN and MSN (NP track) in one fell swoop. There is no consensus on whether a DNP will be mandatory for NP practice. Many...

  7. the cold hard reality for FNPs in primary care...?
    I worked for 3 years doing primary care in an urban community health center. I burned out in that setting and in that short time frame. I had to see 30-35 patients a day and was given 15 minutes per...

  9. Direct Entry Program Acceptance Rates
    My program's NP DE acceptance rate was about 10%. There's a lot of interest, and most schools can pick and choose their students. Somehow, you need to set yourself apart from the masses.

  10. Struggling NP student in need of advice !
    I'm sorry you are struggling. Grad school is a whole different ballgame than undergrad, and it does require more time and attention. I think working full time is very difficult to do while going to...

  14. Did your school's reputation affect getting hired?
    Frontier is an excellent school. Others have given you great advice about networking. I would also add that if you can, try and do as many clinical/patient hours as possible-even over and above...

    Poster is not an NP yet, so I'd take this solely as opinion, not fact.

  17. Looking back, would you obtain NP credential??
    I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I've been practicing for 5 years and have never regretted my decision. There were sacrifices, but it was worth it in the long run.

    I worked as a PCP for 3 years and was pretty burned out in that short time. I think it was a function of where I worked, and the high needs patient population I saw. We had 15 minutes per...

  21. Shameless Request: What is the easiest NP program to go to? Botox Nurse seeks easy NP
    So that 98% acceptance rate is not actually fact. I called a friend who is on the faculty at Simmons and she told me the acceptance rate is closer to 35%. Simmons is an extremely reputable school,...
