  1. Graduated 7 months ago FL- still no job!
    I left Florida for similar reasons, but it's worth noting anyone in major urban areas in general tend to spent 6mo-1.5yr unemployed out of school. It took me 9 months to find a job in Miami, which...

  2. Salary!?
    Out of school in Miami most made 75-85k, which is what I made. I moved to California and make 115k. Likely with a little more experience I'll make more, but having state income tax cuts off ~12k of...

  3. NHSC loan repayment program with HPSA 12 at FQHC
    I had a similar experience with nurse corps but applying via a major urban hospital system as an RN. In general I believe it takes 7-10 months (took 10 months for me previously to receive a...

  4. NHSC loan repayment program with HPSA 12 at FQHC
    I'm looking for some advice. I recently started working at an FQHC who lured me and a number of practitioners with the promise of NHSC loan repayment. At the time I was a bit mixed up as California...

  5. Problems with CA Board of Nursing wait times in endorsement applications
    I applied for my CA license by endorsement from FL in January. I got my RN as expected ~3mo later without incident. The NP license was a nightmare with them allegedly losing the check, then saying...

  6. Call pay
    I got an offer where they specify 5 days a month on call at 5$/hr and 60$/hr if I have to go in (wage around 50$/hr normally). Any tips for negotiating around that? Does that generally include when...

  7. Florida Collaborative agreement if not treating
    Got confirmation from the board, you always need a collaborating physician. This leads me to suspect that there are agencies and NPs out there doing this type of work without following state...

  8. Florida Collaborative agreement if not treating
    As I understand it, NPs must work under a collaborative agreement with a physician. I was contacted by an agency that does compensation type evaluations. They said that NPs don't generally need...

  9. NP in Nursing Home/SNF
    Can you elaborate more on that? I know what you mean, I've worked in those environments but would we not be at least culpable from a health perspective or are you talking smaller things like living...

  10. Are APRNs considered Self-Employed?
    I would imagine most are not. The only ones I've met are people working through agencies locum. Either way I'd guess the overwhelming majority are employees of some company that dictates a lot of...

  11. Locum positions for new grads
    I've been working a year in the only place I could find: hospice/palliative admissions evaluations. The local job market is very rough. I've been talking to recruiters when things have been bad and...

  12. Nurse Corps Loan Repayment 2014!
    Unfortunately I was not denied for switching jobs since they never got to the stage where that would have been an issue. Instead they simply said there wasn't enough funds to make my case a priority....

  13. Residencies or extended programs in latin america?
    There's not NPs (outside federal facilities in PR), but there are short term programs run out of nursing schools of liken 2wks-1 month. I was looking for longer options.

  14. Thinking of leaving being an NP: job market vs. quality of life questions
    Interesting about not hiring NPs. I talked to other agencies and they will. Locum stuff would be ideal actually and I'm open. Many (most?) agencies require 2 years in your role to even place you....

  15. Thinking of leaving being an NP: job market vs. quality of life questions
    Distinguished Nurse, there's a number of reasons why that's tough. Most states don't allow independent practice so you'd have to have a collaborative agreement. I've met Nps in Florida that have done...

  16. Adult NP to Family NP
    I am wondering if people know how much clinical hours are required for a similar ANP->post-masters peds certification? It's hard to find info on this for some reason. Also would if be cost effective...

    What happened locally is between entering school and completing my degree the bottom fell out. I was aware, but when I began major hospital systems were still hiring and there was demand. Ever since...

  20. Thinking of leaving being an NP: job market vs. quality of life questions
    I mean I agree, but I haven't met any NP who works less than 60hr/wk anyway. Even primary care NPs are given excessive caseloads with call backs, charting, and follow up. I love the work of an NP,...
