I found your post about the ENP very interesting. I was wondering if there was a way to communicate off line about the application process. I am in the same boat with experience. Thanks.

Nomadcrna, can you give me your thoughts on the WVU emergency medicine program. I am an FNP but before that I worked as an RN in an ED and I would like to position myself to go back into the ED as a FNP. I'm thinking that WVU's program might be a good way to go. Your thoughts?

Did you reapply for the ENP certification? Were you successful the second time? I applied back in Jan and was unsuccessful with two domains high and two domains low. I just revamped my exemplar but not sure if they are going to decline my portfolio again. Who is making these decisions?

Sorry guys but I have not been coming here much do to the personal attacks. I will answer your questions and feel free to pm me as well.

1. WVU emergency medicine program was outstanding, I highly recommend it to FNPs that want to do ER. As the ANCC stated, it is appropriate education for NPs to do ER.

2. I did not reapply for the ENP. My experience was so ridiculous that I have no desire. It truly shows that they could not care less about a true ER cert. they do care if you can write a paper telling them hoe great you are. So advanced ER education, years of experience and advance degrees mean little. The PAs are doing it right. If you have the experience or training, take a certification test. I've heard rumors that the AANP is exploring the possibility of an ER cert. I hope so.

I am a FNP. Should we include FNP academic credit as well?

Thanks

I am convinced the ANCC is running a pyramid scam through the ENP certification. For example, I have a DNP and I scored low on professional development. How can someone who holds one of the highest degrees in nursing with speaking engagements, 2 years of emergency practice, and 200 hours of precepting other nurse practitioners, not be considered high on professional development?

I followed their format to the letter and fulfilled every requirement with more than asked for. I was scored low in all four domains including teamwork and safety. I contest this since my "team" and myself implemented an opiate program to reduce death in the state of Oregon. I am embarrassed to have been a part of this sham and to be a part of hoop jumping that gets higher and higher without improvement in compensation, respect, or a place at the table.

I will be calling ANCC tomorrow and requesting a formal review and explanation. I will also be asking for the pass ratio because of the number of fails I see posted here. The final thing I will want to know is am I being judged by emergency nurse practitioners, nurses with doctoral degrees, or who are these "specially trained reviewers". Something is very wrong. Save your money and work to qualify instead for the testing offered by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. I myself with continue to work emergency as an ARNP since the certification does not change my pay or status within my organization.

Trudy Noon, DNP
