    RN Experience for Advanced Practice Nurses?

    I will answer this from personal experience. As an Advanced Nurse Practitioner I feel the experience I had as a nurse made me the NP I am today. I am in women's health and right out of nursing school wasn't able to find a job in a hospital because I didn't have any experience. I got a job as a RN in an OB/GYN office and worked for four years before entering a NP program. Those four years were building blocks for my current practice as an ARNP. I was fortunate to come back to the same practice after completing the program so this made it somewhat easier as far as knowing the basics of how the office ran but putting my new knowledge into practice was successful because I was able to build on what I had already been doing. I feel like many of the others, experience is key!

    What do nurses think of Physicians Assistants?

    As a women's health nurse practitioner I feel it is important to educate my patients about what my role is as well as my education As far as I know PA's may come from any background (bachelor's degree) and then go to PA school where as I already have a nursing degree to build on. Clients are always asking me when will you become a doctor and my reply is always that I am very happy as a Nurse Practitioner. I value the nursing model of patient care which for me is treating the whole person and I try to incorporate this into my practice.
