  1. I am not from Indiana and do not need oversight in my state, but I choose not to manage any type of behavioral type patients, I am a firm believer that specialty training is there for a reason.

    Pesi CME?

    Anyone with any experience with PESI for NP CME? Also please throw out your favorite CME options that you use. I have become a fan of the Medical Letter and Prescriber's Letter.

    Walden FNP Review

    The program has changed since I went through it. I believe it still is first year theory and second clinical. I do know a recent graduate and she did work as a nurse during school.

    Walden FNP Review

    I have been reading different threads on here for years but have never had an account. I have seen a lot of talk about Walden, mostly pertaining to "don't go" which is not bad advice but does not answer any questions. I figured I would add in a basi...
