Any NNP's out there?

  1. Hey! I'm an RN(BSN) with almost 2 years clinical experience in a level 3 NICU in Indianapolis. I'm tentatively considering going back to school to become an NNP. I have so many questions and would appreciate any responses you have.

    Salary for NNP's vs. other NP's?

    Utilization of NNP's is other parts of the country?

    Good NNP schools?

    I'm possibly relocating to Minnesota. Anyone familiar with the twin city area? Know anything about the NICU's there? NNP schools there?

    I would appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!

    Hello, LauRNicu,

    Have you inquired about the program at College of St. Catherine?

    Yes! It is the only one I have found though. I was wondering if it's the only one in the state. Thanks for the response!

    I know the NNP programs are few and far between all over the U.S., so, this just might be the only program in MN.

    I'd like to know this too. I've never seen a salary quote that high for NNP.

    There are alot of online NNP schools out there...you just have to be willing to pay out of state tuition and the majority of schoolwork is online....they would help you set up clinicals in an area close to you with a preceptor. I presently attend the University of TN in Memphis...www.utmem.edu. Hope this helps!
