    I'm also applying for NP programs fall 2012, specifically to ASU (Arizona State) and NMSU (New Mexico State) both BSN-DNP programs. I haven't been a RN for too long, but figured that it wouldn't hurt to try and apply right now!

    Please help me!! I am writing my essay for grad school for ACNP and didn't realize the need for a reference page?? What are you guys referencing in your essay? I haven't written an essay for school in over 20 years and am not up on the latest requirements. I understand about APA format and how to reference, but what would I want to write about that would require a reference. Can anyone help me? I researched some sample letters on internet, but didn't find any particular to ACNP grad schools and none of them had anything other than personal information that would not need a reference page. If anyone has any links to share, that would be great as well! Thank you so much for your help!!

    Sorry to hear that, microdi2. I didn't have to do citations for the FNP. I would check out this link for info about current APA standards. APA Style. You might also want to get PERRLA software, since APA is going to be our "friend" for the next few years of school! As far as your topic goes, they didn't offer suggestions? Maybe something about an evidence based practice that you are interested, like VAP reducing bundles? Whatever you like. There should be plenty of journal articles to back up your topic, and thus plenty of references for the paper. Good luck.

    Thank you for recommending the PERRLA program. I have been reading through an APA manual trying to get an idea and this will be so much easier

    PERRLA is a real time saver. I wish I'd gotten it earlier!

    Hey microdi2,
    I would try to get 2-3 journal articles from an accredited database source describing the importance/need of ACNPs in society, etc. Then incorporate it into your paper while describing your goals and personal importance of being an ACNP. Hope this helps and good luck!
