  1. 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,...

  2. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    Matthew-with all due respect, you sound like a child. It's very difficult to find anyone who personally attacks another poster credible. You are entitled to your opinion. I don't think anyone...

  3. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    If you read carefully, you would see that I did not say that at all. I said you do not need a medical school education to be a good provider. NPs provide comparable care to MDs in many patient...

  4. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    This is really insulting. You're inferring that this is all that the poster did, completely dismissing her nursing and NP education and training. No one here is against improving NP education. ...

  6. Psychiatric Nurse NP without R.N. experience
    I'm an FNP, not a Psych NP, who was in the same boat. I was unable to get a part time or per diem RN job while in NP school, so I just went straight through and right into a NP job. I did just...

  7. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    Actually, a previous poster did say that no one sees getting into NP school as an accomplishment. Again, this is an opinion of someone who is not an NP, so I take it with a huge grain of salt. ...

  8. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    I don't believe nurses are hostile to more education at all. ANPs have to do continuing education to keep our board certification current. I know many NPS who participate in research, and many more...

  11. Why your local physician group is wary of hiring a new graduate nurse practitioner
    Really, Chillnurse??? Do you actually think deception and playing games is helpful? Do you think anyone will take you seriously now? Your little ploy was immature and insulting to our intelligence. ...

  12. Why your local physician group is wary of hiring a new graduate nurse practitioner
    My experience has been the the exact opposite of the OPs harangue. I have yet to have a negative experience with an MD who thinks NPs are a less evolved and less intelligent species. Where do you...

  14. Part-Time NP Programs: Opinions?
    First of all, no NP should come out of any program feeling all ready to practice on their own. You graduate as a novice NP, no matter how many years of RN experience you may have. A new grad NP...

  15. Part-Time NP Programs: Opinions?
    Totally agree. The OP is making assumptions about something in which he/she has no experience. Going to school part time is not a reflection on the student's intelligence, desire to work hard,...

  16. Is it worth it to get my NP?
    I went into nursing in my mid 40s and did go the NP route. I went to school full time (brick and mortar) and worked 14 hours a week on weekends. It was the right decision for me. I love being an...

  17. What Must I do???
    I agree with Brit. Your GPA needs to come up. Most reputable BSN-MSN programs are very competitive and are looking for GPAs well over 3.0. Also, since you want to work in labor and delivery, you...

    It could be that she's not licensed in MA. And yes, her being a nurse has nothing to do with the abuse, but the media has certainly honed in on that detail, and will probably continue to mention it....

  22. How do you approach parents who refuse pediatric vaccines?
    I think education is key. I don't work in primary care anymore, but I would always try to tease out why a parent didn't want their child immunized. Often their decision was based on incorrect and...
