    We Must Demolish NP Diploma Mills

    Agree with every sentence. Lately, more and more patients weave into the visit the question, „So, where'd you study?“. Once they hear where I went, they seem to relax. I thought it was an odd question to ask, but maybe they've been encountering subpa...

    Hello! I completed a VA residency last year and we weren't required to give back any time. My director tried her best to find us VA positions, if interested. Good luck🙂

    I would highly encourage those who don't seem quite ready to do a residency. I did one through Veterans Affairs and felt so much more prepared to practice. But if there isn't one local to them, they'd have to move.

    Scary. Crossing fingers the board exam will be too high of a hurdle and stop her from practicing as a provider. But then again, it was easy, so she may pass😱

    As soon as you start the residency and get your bearings, start networking. I am dead serious. Let everyone and anyone know you are interested in working at the main campus or one of the CBOCs. All about connections.

    I should've gone through that program from the get go. I think it is more marketable as well.

    Chronicles of a VA APRN Resident

    What a mess. I hope the others who were not offered jobs at their VA landed on their feet elsewhere. It's tough in my area. Either the private sector pay is not that great or they want more experience than I have. Silly me thinking it would be easier...

    Chronicles of a VA APRN Resident

    Well, my peeps, the third interview came and went. The primary care director did not offer me a position. I must say, it was disappointing to say the least. It was a two months long, three interviews, and driving 6 hours roundtrip twice ordeal that e...

    Chronicles of a VA APRN Resident

    For example, the incoming cohort was contacted of their acceptance into the program this past week and they are set to begin Mon 25 Sep. I believe half are moving from out of state, so they have a little over two months to find a place in Gainesvi...

    We started looking 6-9 months in advance because you are so right. VA moves at sloth speed.

    Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Residency

    From my experience, it is not difficult. My director has been doing everything in her power to place us in VA jobs, within the residency VISN or out. For example, I live elsewhere and moved for the residency. She gave me the person to contact to inqu...

    Chronicles of a VA APRN Resident

    Life is good. In my last week of the derm rotation. The NP preceptor is flipping awesome. She has educated the crap out of me this past month and I've been doing procedures like crazy. See one, do the rest. I have found my field. I love it. If anyone...
