    New Grad WHNP

    Hi everyone! I am a new grad women's health nurse practitioner. I completed a Bachelor's to MSN program, having a bachelor's degree in a non-nursing field. So as well as having no NP experience, I also have little to no RN experience. I have been looking for a job as a women's health NP for several weeks now, and am having no luck. Does anyone have any advice for someone in my position? I am willing to relocate if necessary. Most organizations I have spoken with so far want someone with NP experience. Would I be better served by looking for RN experience right now? Would appreciate any advice or suggestions- very frustrated!!! Thanks!
  2. I'm having trouble PM'ing you - Can you PM or email me? kmcsis@juno.com
  3. Hi! I will be starting the MSN program at Vanderbilt this fall in the pre-specialty year. Has anyone gone through this part of the program? I am interested to know anything about the pre-specialty year that I should know. Do you have to have the most current editions of textbooks or are older ones alright? Did anyone work during the first year? Any info will be appreciated. K.B.

    Smart Financial Aid Choices

    Starting Vandy NP program in Fall and wondering about Financial Aid. I have a scholarship but Vandy is very expensive. Am approved for Plus and Stafford loans but open to advice about smarter options, other scholarships or grants. I know my bank offers Student Loans and I know there are websites that offer private bidding for better rates.
  6. Starting in Women's Health this fall - the two year program. Already live in NAshville, about twenty miles out of town in Mt Juliet. Would love to talk to some current/former grads about rotation sites and financial aid tips. Thanks! KMC

    CLS degree to BSN Accelerated

    I have a degree in CLS (clinical lab science) and have worked in a hospital since I graduated. I am looking for an accelerated program to get me to the BSN so I can go on to NP. I live in North Louisiana and there is a great NP program - if I can just find a way to the BSN hopefully without the longest possible route.... Any info you could give would be helpful THanks!

    Vandy NP Midwife Program

    Hi there - I graduated from Vandy in medical technology and am now applying for the two year to BSN/NP program in midwifery. I saw a post from someone earlier who was in this program and would love to talk to them! Or anyone who can give me some clue of what to expect. I also worked in the Vandy hospital for several years after graduation.
