Hi I'm a new nurse (just graduate Dec 22) and passed exam on Jan 4. Part of all that is to Tpapn.  I have no idea what I'm getting into.  Trying to find a evaluator and job.  What is ahead of me?

Are you able to log into spectrum360 yet? I believe there is a long list of evaluators on there under resources! If not, ask your case manager to send you a list. There is a slight chance you might get insurance to cover it, but it has to be a TPAPN approved evaluator and many didn't take insurance for this eval (you could submit it yourself though!) If you have an HSA or FSA you can use that. The job part was a little tricky. Rehabs, Dialysis and case management tend to hire nurses with stipulations. You could also look at being a wound care nurse or a diabetes educator. Congratulations on graduating and getting licensed! The next few years will be over before you know it 🙂
