    Thanks! I am part-time and already started

    CHOP NICU

    Oh I see. I know you said you didn't work there but maybe you might have some insight into how long it takes for a position to open up? I'm just so tired of waiting and the uncertainty of it all.

    CHOP NICU

    Hi there! Have you worked at CHOP before? You seem to know so much about their unit! Do you know if they hired anyone during the pandemic? I know their NICU is known to have a high turnover rate. They posted a position for experienced RNs but I was told they are just interviewing for future positions and that there aren't currently any available which is kind of confusing for me.

    CHOP NICU

    Hi everyone! I recently moved to the Philadelphia area and working at CHOP's NICU would be an absolute dream. I do come with Level IV NICU experience but with the hiring freeze I'm not sure if they're planning on hiring external staff this year. Can anyone still provide me with some interview questions/tips/even just the general vibe of their NICU?

    Thanks so much for getting back to me. I ended up getting accepted!! 🙂
  6. Hi! I'm applying to Penn's NP Program in the Spring of 2021 as a part-time student and saw that you applied last year. I was wondering what the time frame was. Was it actually rolling admissions? Did you apply earlier than the deadline?

      I'm not working.

      Every program is different but I spoke with my program director a lot during the interview about time commitment and she said even part time it's hard to work once clinical starts and they don't recommend it, but many do it and are still successful.

      Even part time classes are very time consuming, especially when clinical starts because you are ideally in clinical 2 days per week then class 1-2 days per week depending on when classes are offered.

      For the interview I'd say over prepare. In my case the interview ended up not really being an interview but more of an informal conversation where my program director talked me through the program and asked what questions I had.

      Let me know if you want to talk over the phone about any of this - it may be quicker/easier and I'm happy to share my experience.

      Oh I see. I feel like many people have been saying it was very informal. I sure hope that’s the case! I would really appreciate that I will DM you my number

    New subspecialty (ELBW and Neuro) NICU certifications?

    Oh WOW!! I heard it was a pretty difficult exam from other people as well. I have read through the Golden Hours book and it seems very similar to the CCRN/RNC-NIC content. I just don't know what to expect. Also, if anyone is interested in the C-NNIC certification, I passed it a few weeks ago!!

    CONGRATS! What did you use for study materials? Also, did it take 15 days for your results?

    Oh awesome, thank you! 🙂

    New subspecialty (ELBW and Neuro) NICU certifications?

    Oh WOW!! How's the format? Just multiple questions? Do you get your results right away? Also, I would private message you but I can't since I'm new.

    How did you study for the NANN Developmental Care Specialist qualification? I am a huge advocate for developmental care in our population and never heard of it before this thread. It seems like there is a textbook and a set of modules they offer as study resources.

    Thank you so much for your reply! I would love to ask you more questions but I'm unable to message you privately 😞

    Any UPenn MSN-FNP Students Out There??

    Hi @nursegirl20! I'm sorry this isn't really related to your post but I was wondering if you could talk a little bit more about how you got into UPENN? It would be an absolute dream to get in but I'm just so overwhelmed with the process and the stress of applying. Sorry if this is so public, I'm unable to private message you

    I mean programs that specifically cater to NNPs. I am aware that there are more, but I did say UPENN is one of the few, compared to hundreds of other specialty NP programs out there.

    I was interested in the NNP program at UPENN and was wondering if you had any advice on strengthening my resume? What do you feel like helped you stand out?

    I have been looking at UPenn's NNP Program since it is one of the few exclusive NNP programs out there. To those who have been accepted, what do you think helped you stand out? GPA, GRE, certifications, work experience, committees, research?
