    DEA registration

    Thanks everyone. It definitely takes about 3 weeks or so for it to be approved. Calling the DEA to check the status was a nightmare.

    DEA registration

    New grad here. I was able to get a hold of a live person over the phone which took forever. Didn’t really get any information as to when I will get it other than pending approval. How long did it take for you to get your DEA number?

    NP in pain management

    Any NPs here in pain management? I am a new grad FNP with a specialty in ortho. Any thoughts or experiences in this field? It seems like this field has many benefits in the long run.
