    ICU NP's in the Northwest

    I've worked at 2 different hospital systems in WA and have not seen NP's in the critical care setting. All the NP's I have had contact with were either specialty or hospitalists in the med/surg/tele units. Some of the more experienced NP's sometimes had a couple patients in the PCU in collaboration with the intencivist MD.

    DEA license, apply now or when offered a job?

    I got my DEA # in one week and another classmate of mine also got hers in one weeks time. We are both in different states. I was glad I had mine before my first job, and they reimbursed me for the DEA licensing.

    Any Optum NPs out there?

    Do you happen to know how the bonuses work there? I am looking into a position here on the Western US w/ Optum as a NP.

    Anyone work for OptumHealth / UnitedHealth Group?

    Do you happen to know how the NP's that work in the LTC's feel about their workload/pay?

    Seattle University AGACNP

    Anyone else apply for 2018 admission? Wanted to see how everyone else is doing and maybe "meet" some other applicants to see how everything goes. Good luck!

    Acute NP schools?

    You could seek out a dual FNP/AGACNP program, but that would be outside WA state. From what I know there are no hospitals on the western side that have peds and adults inpatient together. Most all patients are taken to either a Childrens Hospital or any other hospital that only has adult patients; and AGNP's can see patients 13+ years old. I know UW and SU both have ACNP programs for RN-DNP, but yes they are AGACNP. Good luck.

    What's it like? Home Health Nurse Practitioner

    Maybe it depends in the area you live in. I know in the Northwest there are many adult family homes and so there are NP's that work with smaller organizations that go out to some assisted living facilities and adult family homes. depending on the schedule you are hired for as various organizations can offer different scheduling options like nursing- 8 or 12 hr days. Larger companies that do "house calls" like United Health Care also exist. I have a couple friends who have done this and they saw around 15-20+ patients 2-4 days a week (depending on their contract they had to meet a certain number of patient load per pay period) and charted at home, in addition to on call.

    How much is the average RN salary in Seattle?

    When I was working as a RN in Seattle with 3-4 years experience, certification pay and not taking benefits on per diem I was making ~$40/hr but a lot of times I would also have a student or new hire with me which gave me additional $1/hr, or staying over during part of evening shift, etc would add a little more. Swedish union is through SEIU so you could look on that site for union rights/pay there. Swedish Medical Center | SEIU Healthcare 1199NW I believe in the Seattle area BSN is pretty standard so there isn't extra pay that goes along with that. Seattle has gorgeous summers I hope you have a positive experience.
