    FNP in Hospital Setting

    I mean, instead of a snarky gif, perhaps you could be helpful and use your actual, adult words and elaborate on what you are saying here? I did not ever work in a hospital as an RN so this is foreign to me on every level and I am asking for guidance/advice...not gifs.

    FNP in Hospital Setting

    Yes it’s a speciality, not a hospitalist-type job. I will be rounding on ICU patients but in a largely consultative role for the specialty - so, not responsible for day-to-day care, but rather consultative for things like vent weans, etc. I feel like this would fall in scope given the nature of the job in the hospital. But not sure if there is a type of insurance more suited for hospital v primary care role.

    FNP in Hospital Setting

    Hi, I just accepted my first job as an FNP in a hospital setting. I'll be rounding on all patients in the hospital that will be on my service. Is there a specific personal malpractice insurance I should have? Certain criteria it should meet? I basically know nothing about this as I've been a home health RN for 8 years. Thanks!

    Massachusetts NPs - A License Question!

    Can you apply for licensure before you have a job? The online APRN licensing application requires that the applicant apply to be a provider (and fill out a provider application) for MassHealth but it appears you need an NPI number for that, which, as you know, you can't get without a job. Help! I feel like such an idiot that I can't see to do this but the application company, my school, MassHealth have nothing to offer in the way of help! Thanks!
  5. Hi! I am trying to apply for my APRN licensure but when I clicked that I had not applied to be a Mass Health provider, it basically made me quit the application. The Mass Health Provider application reads like it's intended for people to not understand it. Plus, I don't have a job and it seems to be asking for job-related info. Can anyone guide me? I didn't expect this to be so challenging.

    What credentials do I use?

    Thanks. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to become licensed. Apparently it is tied to Medicaid in my state and that application is about as easy to understand as Astrophysics.

    What credentials do I use?

    Hi! i received my official certification from the AANP today. It says I can use the credentials “NP-C.” I was in an FNP program so would I use FNP-C? Also, are my official credentials “My Name MSN, APRN, NP-C?” I am also currently working as an RN - when I sign off do I have to use my new credentials since it’s my highest education level? Or can I still use “My Name, RN?” thanks!

    Passed AANP on Monday...I Have Questions!

    Thanks for this! A specialty does sound super interesting to me. I did a clinical rotation in a Minute Clinic and felt like it wouldn't be a good learning environment since you are solo after 3 weeks.

    Passed AANP on Monday...I Have Questions!

    Hi! I took the AANP as an FNP on Monday and I have a "preliminary pass." I have a few questions: 1) What licenses should I obtain now and what should I wait for a potential future employee to pay for (no jobs on the horizon currently)? 2) Are there any particularly useful websites for drafting a resume as an APRN? 3) What should I negotiate for at interviews? Are there any things I should supply for myself - like an additional malpractice insurance, etc? And, finally: 4) I grew to dislike primary care during my clinicals. At this point in my life, with small children, I am looking for a job that allows for the most flexibility while also maximizing pay - can anyone point me in that direction? Are there any online institutions that would hire an MSN for courses as a supplemental income I could pick up? Thanks!
