    Procedures as an FNP

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone who's a FNP has been trained in procedures by the doctor they work with. Any procedures, like biopsies, paracentesis, etc. Thank you!

    Yes, that is the order. The school gives you a list of previously used preceptors, which is helpful if you're in the areas with previous students, unfortunately I haven't found a lot of use. CSU is super hard to find info on though, which is why I initially came here. So I try to keep it updated with responses because I didn't have a lot of info either. You need 45 hrs for health assessment and diagnostic/clinical reasoning, 135 hours for other semesters (45 in OB/GYN and 90 in Peds) and 270 hours for your practicum (specialize for 100 hrs if wanted and 20 hrs for review are counted). Hope this helps!!

    Hi! I am currently in the geriatric semester. You are able to use a family practice and only see people 55 and older. I did not find any problems finding a preceptor there, but the pediatric and OB/GYN rotation has been hard (I live in Florida, so we have a lot of elderly and not so many children I guess LOL). I still haven't found a pediatrician. The general setup is having didactic and clinical together. My first semester I only had didactic classes without clinicals and after that the clinicals started. I think it all depends on when you start the program too. So far I have had a positive experience and have 2 semesters after this one. If you have any other questions, I'll try to answer. Good luck and congratulations!!

    Hey! I'm in Florida, so I can't help you there, but so far I've enjoyed the program. The hardest part is finding a preceptor, but that's with many of the schools. I would recommend the program so far, I'm 2 semesters in and starting my 3rd soon. I haven't had any issues with the school or instructors so far. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I'll answer the best I can!
