    CVS Nurse Practitioner

    Hello all, I am set to graduate next Summer and have started looking for positions. I plan to apply to a couple fellowships/residencies. I know I will not be ready to practice on my own when I graduate and need a solid educational transition to practice. If I do not get accepted into one of the programs, I am thinking about applying at CVS. For new NP grads that started their careers with CVS, how was it? How long did you train under a mentor before you were on your own? Thanks in advance.

    Seeking Fall 2020 Pediatric Preceptor

    It is tough out there. I gave in and found a preceptor through an agency. They charge $$$ and it hurts to pay, but I am not willing to push my graduation a semester in order to find someone who is willing to precept for free. I will just work extra shifts at work to make up the cost. I hope others have better luck than me.

    Passed AANP Exam June 2020

    Congratulations and thank you for the information! I plan on taking the exam in June 2021 and want to slowly start gathering my resources. Good luck to everyone else!
  4. Hello all, I plan on taking the AANP exam in June 2021 and I thought I would slowly start gathering resources to prepare for it. I want to pass it the first time. What is your advice and what do you think is the most useful study resource(s)? Thank you! Update: Nevermind. I did a quick search and for the most part, many said Leik is the best resource.

    Seeking Fall 2020 Pediatric Preceptor

    Hello, As if things weren't difficult before COVID-19, it's tougher now to find preceptors. I am a GWU FNP student and not having any luck after contacting 50+ offices (started before the virus). Does anyone know of any Pediatric NPs/MDs/DOs willing to take a student this August? I live in northern VA, but willing to travel up to 2 hours away in VA and in MD. Thank you!

    Finding my fnp preceptor

    I am in the same nerve wracking situation. I begin my program on Monday and hope to start working part-time next month. Once I get settled into both, I am going to network hard. I live in northern VA and I have heard horror stories of people driving hours from their homes for clinicals. I am getting myself ready mentally to do what needs to be done. Good luck to all!

    Patient First Urgent/Primary Care Clinics

    Hello! In June, HR interviewed me and I did not hear a peep until a week ago. I was not selected for the applied site, but HR inquired if I would be interested in an interview with a director and nursing manager at a different site. Of course! As soon as I finished the interview a few days ago, HR called my references and submitted a background check, which I took as a positive sign. I hope to hear from them next week. Fingers crossed for both of us!
  8. Hello! I start an NP program in the fall and I am already starting to research fellowships/residencies. Has anyone done the plastic surgery fellowship at Cleveland Clinic or known anyone who has gone through it? How was it? Thanks in advance!

    Patient First Urgent/Primary Care Clinics

    Hello! I am considering a part-time RN position for one of the clinics in Northern VA. Can anyone tell me about their experiences working for Patient First? Thanks in advance!

    George Washington FNP

    After I read the thread titled "Disappointment in NP Program", I decided to actively start looking for preceptors within the next week. I do not want to sit out a semester just because I can't find a willing NP, DO, or MD. Has anyone tried ENP or PreceptorLink? I moved to the D.C./MD/VA area 6 weeks ago from Germany, so I am unfortunate in that I don't have a strong network to lean on. Thank you!

    George Washington FNP

    Hello all! I am excited and stressed to start the FNP full-time option in August. The part that is stressing me is the clinical portion. I'd like someone's feedback on that part, especially if they are/were in the D.C.-Maryland-Virginia area. How did you go about finding preceptors? How difficult was it? If you could do it over again, what would you change? Congrats to everyone!
