    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.

    Thanks for your responses. I guess I'm not used to all this.

    Another job interview..help

    Hey all, I have another interview coming up. I spoke with the recruiter and they are getting everything set up. It's a small hospital. The recruiter told me that I will be doing a facility tour, have lunch and dinner with some other providers including the CEO. Is this customary? I feel kind of weird doing all this. Thanks for your time.

    2nd interview for NP position

    Thank you! It is a primary care clinic. This interview was way more relaxed.

    2nd interview for NP position

    So I have a second interview coming up, this time it's to interview with the director of the organization. My first interview was a panel style with 3 to 4 interviewers and I felt intimidated even though it was supposed to be "relaxed" or "casual." I was asked behavioral questions as well as clinical management of adult patients. I'm very anxious about the interview being that it will be my first provider position. I recently graduated from NP school. I posted this thread in 'Advanced Practice' it's probably more appropriate in this section. Need some advice....

    Am I going to regret being a nurse?

    When nurses communicate to patients it's not a social interaction, but a therapeutic one. What I mean about therapeutic is that it is for the patient's benefit and not the nurses. You will learn more about this in nursing school. When we interact with patients we tend to listen and do a lot of health teaching. It is a totally different industry compared to retail.
  9. I'm in a BSN program. I have about 2 1/2 semesters to go. I had good grades and my science GPA was about a 3.5 give or take. I have an allied health care degree and have over 3000 hours of patient care experience. It took me about a year to get into a nursing program. I was turned down from at least 3 nursing schools around the Charlotte area. So, yeah...I was a little discouraged...at first. I waited and applied several times to get into a program. Do you know what the most frustrating thing about the waiting game is? That the surrounding nursing schools keep changing their entrance criteria. This is based on my experience. The schools always implemented something new each semester. For example, the TEAS exams, CNA certificate....and so on. It gets frustrating. In the back of your mind, you already know what needs to be done. Just do what you think is right for YOU.
  10. Not to discourage you, but it is very competitive to get into a nursing program over here.
