    Johns Hopkins DNP FNP Fall 2021

    I didn’t think they were but not in wondering if that could be. I’m so anxious to hear back, I really hope it’s still this week.

    Johns Hopkins DNP FNP Fall 2021

    How did it go?? Did they ask about peds experience? When did they say they would let you know post interview? I’m hoping to hear in the next week or so if I have one! Fingers crossed.

    Anyone SANE trained?

    Hello, im a peds nurse with a little over a year experience. I’ve always wanted to help those who are abused, and I do see it on my floor from time to time just from the culture of peds. I signed up to do SANE training in January, is anyone a SANE nurse? Is there anything per diem or volunteer I could do with this? It’s something I’d love to know more about!

    Johns Hopkins ACNP/PNP program

    This is for the fall 2021 term, however I’m not that optimistic to assume covid will be better. I’m also hoping they might cancel these if it’s still bad by then. Who knows, can’t really control that aspect of it. yeah I reached out and she said basically a vague statement that some people do and are fine some people go to part time or less so not very helpful.

    Johns Hopkins ACNP/PNP program

    Hello! I am a peds nurse at a hospital in Denver,Colorado. I’m coming up on a year of experience (my floor is general pediatrics so we see everything and are also considered a step down unit). I also float to the PICU, and will get APHON trained in October. I will also get my CPN in November. I’m just trying to justify going for my DNP next fall already haha. I reached out to Johns Hopkins, since it has a dual primary and acute care pediatric NP Program. It also it completely online with only one trip to Baltimore a semester. Has anyone done this program? I reached out and the woman said I would be a good candidate, but I’m still nervous with only a year of acute pediatric experience. Also for anyone in this program or a similar one, are they willing to give scholarship money and is there anything I should be doing now to get that? I work for a HCA company so I know I’ll get a few thousand a year for it, but it’s still one of the most expensive options I could choose haha. I’m also nervous about working during this, does anyone have experience with balancing a full time position and DNP program? Thanks!!
  12. @alp143 I haven’t heard any update either. I applied to general, hematology/oncology, and ortho/spine. It’s frustrating because I have other interviews in Denver this week so I’ll be here and still just in limbo with them. I’ve reached out to their HR to get a final answer and nothing. Have you talked to anyone?

  14. I'm a recent graduate from an accelerated, 12 month ABSN program. I'm desperately wanting to find a job in pediatrics, my clinical was the best experience I've had so far in nursing. I also have extensive background with kids, working as a nanny and a babysitter for 11 years. I didn't even think that would be what I was going to want to go into before school , and i fell in love with it. It seems like the only way you can get into a speciality now is to go through a residency program. I've applied to one, but the other pediatric hospital in the city I'm moving to doesn't even have one. It seems like it's crazy competitive, and while I'm eager for nursing in general, I do not want to start off in adults when I know that's not where my hearts set on. I'm completely open to general medicine in the pediatric population, but I don't want to make a big move just to be doing something that my heart isn't in. Does anyone with a pediatric background have any advice for me? I'll be meeting with managers at a pediatric hospital next week. How can i come off as passionate as I am about going into this field? And how can i make myself more marketable? I have background as a CNA/STNA at a SNF when I was in undergrad. I have two bachelors (psych and my BSN) and graduated cum laude from my ABSN (don't know if that matters). I'm getting so discouraged, and hoping that I don't have to start looking in other cities.
  15. no i havent heard a single update! i thought it was just me haha
  16. i had a very average GPA in undergrad like yourself and got a 3.5 in a 12 month ABSN! however, i will warn that it was definitely expensive, demanding, and the most challenging year of my life. do not go into it lightly, and get into good study habits right away.
