    That is correct. I got recruited for a job working Trauma and then ended up doing something completely different. I ended up finding out the place was very dysfunctional. It is a small system and...

    Beware of this place. This place does not have it's act together and has no idea how to use midlevels and it shows badly in how they treat us. Terrible place. Stick to the bigger markets.

  7. EVERYONE is going for NP these days
    I agree. Move to where the jobs are. I am in the Southeast right now and the area is saturated or the pay is poor. That is not the case in other places in the country. I might beat you by a few...

    I am in my mid 40's and going to school right now. I haven't heard about age being a problem. I'm happy to be away from the hospital. Overjoyed to be honest.

  15. frustrated with "online" NP schools
    I think this whole thread was a trolling attempt to be honest. At least that's what I thought when I read it. If not, it's just a lame topic. I want to be able to sit for boards when I am done and...

    So what you're saying here if I might paraphrase is.......... Because I encountered two programs that don't require references I am going to condemn the whole system. This method is being used...
