TBH NP's make not much more than RN's. My son has a BSN and works in a major metro city. While he does overtime, he is making more than me.
BTW, I finished the program in 2012.
I do not think of myself as "advanced age." I am 56.
Agencies don't care. No need to tell them. I was a traveler in my own city. I live in a large city and it was all fine. They even paid me a stipend for living in my own place. They essentially paid my rent.
Rural area. Get your experience.
Functional medicine Nurse There. I love it. I could make more as a RN I just happen to enjoy what I do. I still RX meds just not as many as most.
This is turning into a more complicated mess. I went on the DEA site and paid my money. Now I have learned that I should have applied with the Georgia DEA. The lady on the phone said Washington takes forever and that's where I sent my application and money. If it's over 3 months it appears one looses the money and starts all over again. Frustrating!
I'm in Georgia but I hear NC is similar. You are coming to a very backward part of the country (and much lower pay). My first collaborative wanted 3k a month and some get that. I'm down to 1,500 per quarter but I do not prescribe any benzodiazapines or pain meds.
In former days, of course. These days with everyone filming and selling to media I will pass. Sadly a sign of our times.
Thank you. I was concerned with the red tape of the govt it would take a long time. I called GA BON today and she could not give me an answer.
Call them and ask how many applicants they take. It appears to be new. I've considered Duke before and never saw this.
Thank you for this. A passion of mine is reading histories of women from a past era.
We are kind of a backward state. I have accepted that and not ready to relocate to a more progressive state yet as my son is in college here. Anyway, I have been informed that I need a DEA to continue my position. We have 2 offices. I alternate between the 2. How long or difficult will it be to get a DEA license. Thing is we do not even prescribe narcotics and i do not want to. But we have the random patient that needs 10 Ambien. Therefore to keep my current gig I need to do this. Thank you in advance!
I fell in love with travel nursing. So much so that I continued the lifestyle even after I earned my NP. Also made more money as a traveler. Kids got older. We bought a house in one of the cities I traveled to and settled down. I stopped traveling in 2012. I now teach NPs with a medical company part time so I still travel when I get the bug.
Congratulations! My dinner companion just finished her RN and she is close to your age. She is working med surgery in a large hospital in my city. My other RN friend wants to work hospice. My mother was in hospice and I don't care what age the nurse is. However, with age comes wisdom. Best to your new career!
