This is not a single question more so than an opportunity for anyone who has recently become a nurse practitioner and/or started/finished the nurse practitioner route in FNP or any other specialty really; to bring insight into how the experience has been for you.. What issues occurred along the way.. moments of "holly crap" i'm getting this.. or just how a weekly routine has encompassed your daily living during such a specialized advanced nursing route. I have recently applied to two NJ based nurse practitioner programs, and am awaiting the response which will not be for a few months. I just want some advice or what one's who have started an NP program and wished they new prior that could help myself as a future NP student. Thanks everyone! ENJOY the SNOWSTORM if your living in the TRI-STATE area today..
