Hey guys!  Finally back on here.  Use to get on here awhile back when I first started nursing school for my associates.  Forgot my username and password.  I recently got accepted to a nurse practitioner program from a very good school.  I'm excited but scared at the same time.  It is a lot of information to take in.  There are also a lot of responsibilities that comes with a new degree. Also hoping another nurse practitioner will accept to be my preceptor.  


I just wanted to ask you guys that went into nurse practitioner school if your work experience helped with your nurse practitioner specialty?  I didn't choose family nurse practitioner as rather not work with children. Didn't choose acute care because I don't want to work in ICU or ER.  My work experience have been nursing home, med surg, and acute rehab.  Spent majority of my career in acute rehab.  Went to orientation, and other students are in bigger hospitals or in specialty floor. I just feel like I'm lacking in experience prior to getting into the nurse practitioner program.  The good thing is that some of those students only have one year of nursing experience.  I will have to cut back on working full time so I can focus on school for the next two years.
