    Tonya: Congrats! You've certainly overcome more than most, so thanks for building my confidence a bit. What do you plan on doing with your FNP? Will you continue as Director of Nursing or practice as NP?

    ChubbyNDRN,

    I actually haven't been consistently looking for employment. I am going to take my boards next month and continue to work PRN while I study. Thankfully, I had friends who were nurse practitioners and I created alliances (personal providers) in my first quarter for my other needs. In other words start lining preceptors up NOW. Ask friends, ask your current providers and then once you have verbal committments continue to check with your possible preceptors throughout the program (6 months before and then again 3 months before practicums begin).

    By the way, always have a backup plan and keep an open mind...people can be fickle ;-)
    UC did send me a list of preceptors previous students had used in my area, but they turned out to be dead end leads because most were midwives. However, I needed womens health, pediatric, and family practice providers.

    I hope that helps...you will be fine as long as you plan early. Good luck!

    MSPRN01: Thanks! Great advice, and I am reaching out already. One big question though: does the program allow us to have preceptors that practice inpatient? I work in a big teaching facility, so lots of teachers. If they do allow inpatient clinicals, that would be great for me. Thanks again for your great advice!

    PS: I'm sure you won't have trouble with boards and job hunting. Good luck and please keep us updated on how it goes!

    ChubbyNDRN,

    I am not sure if you intend on focusing on the FNP route. I looked over my old paperwork and clinics either hospital or community-based are appropriate. If the hospital is affiliated with an urgent/primary care facility then that route would probably be your best bet, but you can always call the school to verify requirements for clinical sites.

    Good luck!

    I graduated from UC this year and the program was excellent. I went for Adult NP. Highly recommend.
