    ER NP

    Thanks for your input. What are things that an acute certified can do that a FNP or Adult Gero cannot do? What procedures, etc? Is it possible to be dual certified at the sametime in a program? Is it advantageous to do so? Which dual certifications would you recommend to do? Not interested in psych or women's health btw.... For a person to be able to do central lines, and other invasive procedures....what track you suggest one pursue? If one wanted to be able to work in the ER, Cardiology and also be able to to do cardiothoracic surgery or other surgical specialities....what do you suggest to go about it? Thanks again.....

    ER NP

    Thanks for the suggestion. But I was wondering....if there peds specific ED, and adult specific ED why would it better to be an FNP NP to do so. Would the hospital not hire an adult NP ED, if he/she would be working only in the adult ED?

    How to study for the NCLEX

    Hey All: I am confused as to how and what to use for the NCLEX exam? I can do an ATI course. However, was wondering will just doing this course suffice for me to be able to pass the course? Is it best to go through all the material presented in nursing school that is specific to the subjects tested on the NCLEX in order to have a higher chance to pass or doing a review course like ATI or Kaplan is the best way to approach it....and leave everything that one went over in nursing school? Which are the best question banks btw to do that mimic the exam difficulty? exam question lenght? Thanks for all your suggestions.

    Fundamentals of Nursing course

    Thanks for your Thanks for your comments!
  13. Hi All: Can you please put forth your opinion about the Fundamentals of Nursing course and what book did you use? In school there was not a formal course for it, and I have heard that this course is important for the NCLEX exam.....what does this course entail if you had it in your school? Is it in anyway related to Medical Surgical courses? We had 2 of them in school. I am very confused and also scared.

    Getting to NP

    Thanks for the answer....from looking at the Canadian website, it seems to direct me to the American Nurse practitioner board about latest updates of being allowed to take the exam....

    Getting to NP

    Do canadian students take the same NCLEX exam that the us students take? Also, do Canadian NP students take the same exam that the US NP students take at the end? Many thanks.

    NP programs - Canada

    If one takes the NCLEX exam, and then pursues an NP program in Canada....does one take the same NP exam in Canada that one would take in the US? If not, what would one do to later on practice in the US? Many thanks for all your suggestions!
