I am a master of nursing student in singapore. planning for an overseas trip to the States next year as part of the core module. it will be exciting i believe. i wonder if you could advise me on a good teaching hospital where i could see how the advanced practice nurses function

    thanks

    Hello, Ah Meow, and welcome to Allnurses.com

    It is good to have you. So, you are in an NP program now in your country? That sounds exciting!! I would love to know more about your program. Have you thought about what state you might want to work here in the U.S.? There are many teaching hospitals here.....TOO many to list here. I have a few in my own state as well.

    Please be a little more specific about your expectations and/or plans.

    We will look forward to seeing you on Allnurses.com..........

    hi siri..

    thanks for the fast reply.. ok... NP program is very very new in singapore. i am the second cohort. it must be 30 years behind States. which states are you in? i am thinking of cleveland clinic in ohio but i don't mind texas too.

    as you know, NP or advanced practice nurse (APN) has gone a long way to gain acceptance. we are just at the beginning. the first cohort had a great deal of praise for the nurses in states for their expertise and hospitality!!!

    It must be exciting to be on the front end of a new era as an advanced practice nurse in your country!! I commend you.


    I live in a southern state of the U.S. and we have an excellent teaching institiution that supports and educates advanced practice nurses. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact me via private messaging.

    To answer your question regarding the Cleveland Clinic, they employ a wide variety of APNs.....CRNP, CRNA, CNS, CNM..........over 300 APNs. They are ranked as one of the top four hospitals in the U.S.

    Hi Siri..

    Cleveland is certainly one of my top choice. I am also looking at John Hopkins at Baltimore, Mayo at MN and Texas (can't remember the institution). If you don't mind, I would like to know more about CRNP and CNS and so forth. They do sound foreign to us. The nursing track in singapore are generally divided into administrative, clinical and education. I am a nurse clinician in cardiac settings. my background is intensive care and geriatric nursing - lethal combination! however, my future career track is pretty uncertain due to the fact that acceptance from the different public, medical faculty and even nursing on the ground is still luke warm.
