, thanks for letting us know undergrad programs can be CCNE accredited. How about for ADN and diploma programs?
I had never heard of the CCNE until I started looking for an MSN program. All I knew to look for was NLN.
I am with you on the better schedule when older
I am primarily interested in teaching and initially wanted to do a Nurse Educator program, but I have since decided to apply for a FNP program. I don't really want to do clinical practice full time, but I thought that it would provide a wider range of opportunities. Besides, I have no firsthand teaching experience, I just know that I like helping new staff learn their roles and I do a lot of patient eduation with my job(s). So I figure if the teaching ends up not being for me, I have the clinical side to fall back on. And I thought a FNP education would help me to review the assessment skills I don't use everyday and provide a better base of knowledge to pass on to students. I work primarily in an outpatient surgery center and have since obtaining my RN so there are a lot things I have not experienced. I do work in the ED prn also, but even there, still lots I have not done and lots I've only done a few times.
