    New Grad NP questions- California

    HI! I'm in California and I just graduated from an MSN program and passed the ANCC PMHNP exam.... I applied for my NP license and Furnishing number. I requested my ANCC verification be sent to the the board- now I'm wondering what to do next. It looks like I need to apply for my NPI, a DEA, and a controlled II substance certificate. Here are my questions: 1. Can I apply for a DEA without a job? 2. If I can apply for my DEA without a job; what address should I use? (I've read you have to have a business address to apply but I can't find any information to confirm this). 3. Besides obtaining a DEA, do I have to do something extra to prescribe controlled substances schedule III-V in California? 4. Do I take the schedule II course before I apply for my DEA or after? 5. I don't have a collaborative agreement because I don't have a job lined up yet; will I be able to obtain the DEA without a collaborative agreement? If you have any other info I didn't know to ask; I would appreciate any advice!! Thank you!

  5. Hello, I am already licensed as an RN in California. I will be graduating from a Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner program in May 2020 and have some questions about the process and I am hoping you can help me. It was mentioned in my program we should apply for our license early; the California BRN has an alert on their page that reads, “In order to furnish (prescribe) drugs and devices to patients, you must submit an application for a Nurse Practitioner Furnishing Number together with your Nurse Practitioner Application.” Should I wait until I pass my ANCC and have all my documents before I apply? Do I have to turn 3 applications: a NP application, a furnishing license application, and a Psychiatric mental health nurse application? Or do I just need to turn in the NP application and furnishing license application? If I need to wait to apply; when should I request the transcripts and verification form the form from the school and ANCC? Transcripts sometimes take weeks; what happens if I request those and they arrive before you get my applications? For the Application for the listing as a psychiatric/mental health nurse: I’m not sure what I should put for Page 7, Question E. “Supervised Clinical Experience in Psychiatric/Mental Health Counseling.” It seems like this is independent from my clinical experience which will be verified by the ANCC certification. It wants Beginning and end dates Supervisor’s name and profession Briefly describe the nature of your clinical experience and state where it was obtained Do I just need to list one of my preceptors for this question?

    Please help

    Hi. If you want to be an RN... just get your pre-reqs done & go straight into an RN program. Most of the BSN programs are set up for the full time nurse so after you get your ADN you could work full time while obtaining your BSN if you wanted to. Good luck!

    Help me if you can

    I've learned any experience is good experience. My first job was at a psych facility & once I had 6 months experience, it opened tons of doors. You'll learn a lot no matter where you start. I also recommend you continuing your education. Start a BSN program, get your ACLS/PALS etc... Good luck!

    Best stethoscope for an ER Nurse?

    Hi. I work in the ER & use a Cardiology IV; several of the RNs & MDs use the Cardiology III. I suggest you try out both & see which one you like the best.
