    Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification

    So will this exam be for people graduating from ENP programs? For those FNPs working in ED will it be experience based only or experience plus exam?

    Dankso/Sanita Break in period?

    So after several years, I finally decided to spend some $$ and buy some Dansko clogs. None of the stores in my area had the color I wanted so I ordered online. After waiting 1 month due to backorder, I'm a bit disappointed as they are too tight acros...

    Primary Care Track clinicals with Emergency doc?

    I cannot speak for the adult/gero primary care but I did graduate from the USA FNP program in Dec 2010. We were only allowed to do ED as an elective area during our last semester. This was limited to a certain # of hours, but you could do extra hours...

    University of South Alabama NP program

    I wouldn't let the posts here scare you away. As another poster said a lot of forums have negative reviews. Just like other scenarios, a lot of people complain when they are unhappy but don't necessarily share when they have a good experience. I gra...

    NP autonomy in the ED setting

    I am a new FNP graduate and have been paying more attention over the last year to the PAs in the ED I work in. I am interested in the ED/urgent care setting too. Like the OP, I see that the doc's all physically see and co-sign all the patients/chart...

    Hello all, I will be taking the FNP exam through AANP this month. Assuming I pass the AANP, I have considered taking advantage of the ANCC certification via reciprocity which will no longer be offered after Dec 31, 2010. But it is pricey! Does anyo...
