    Job hunt

    Thank you for your response! I do have a LinkedIn profile, but the free version not the one that requires payment. Do you know if there is a major difference?

    Job hunt

    I am in Duke's WHNP program and scheduled to graduate in December. I would like to start applying for jobs. My husband and I can move anywhere in the USA. I would love any advice on where to look for openings (I've looked on ZipRecruiter, Indeed, and Google jobs), when to apply (is six months out too soon?), things to look out for, the best cities/states to be a WHNP, etc. Ideally I would have a job to start ASAP after graduation. I vacillate between being totally focused on school and being paralyzed with fear about finding a job. It feels almost completely overwhelming. How did you all work through this process? Any and all advice is welcome!

    How much of a pay cut is worth the name and experience?

    Based on the OP I would go with #2. I know someone said that no one cares about Magnet, but I have worked in both Magnet and non-Magnet facilities, and I was way happier at the Magnet facility. The nursing culture at that location was just more caring and involved, but I know not everyone wants to be involved (which is okay!). I think overall #2 sounds like the better choice. Good luck and congratulations on having options!

    Frontier WHNP

    I enrolled at FNU currently. I was admitted into the FNP program, but have since transferred to the WHNP program. They are proud of their CNM program, and should be - it's the #1 program in the country. The midwife program is the foundation of the school. During Frontier Bound (the onsite orientation) they inform the WHNP students that they can complete the CNM and WHNP together in almost the same amount of time as they can the WHNP alone. It works out to numerically just one additional class. That might be part of the reason why they graduate more CNM than just WHNPs alone. The class I applied to, along with the one before and after, had their admissions close early -so you have to keep an eye on the dead line. I will say that my class is fairly diverse in ethnicity, age, and background. There were also two men in the class, both in the FNP program. I have 5 years of nursing experience, both hospital and clinic. I have a 3.9 GPA, wrote the essays honestly, and hoped for the best. If you have any other specific questions I'd be happy to answer them best I can.

    Military spouse overseas

    Hi - I am also a military spouse in Germany (the KMC). I am a WHNP student at Frontier Nursing University. Clinical sites are slim to none here - despite what I was told before I arrived. New command, new rules. I will be going back to the States for my clinical practicum. Do you have good internet where you live? It's an absolute MUST in any program, and it's been my biggest headache since arriving here. Where are you at in Germany? I really love the school, FNU, and I am not sorry about my choice in that regard! You can PM me if you like. Good luck!

    Women's Health NP

    I am currently a FNP student. The school I go to has a WHNP program and I was drawn to that program initially, but after listening to solicited (and unsolicited) advice I decided that the FNP program would give me more flexibility. Given my husband's career choice flexibility is important, so I applied for that program instead and was accepted. I am planning to request a program switch, but I would like to hear from people already in practice as WHNPs what they feel the job market is like. If you are a WHNP what kind of practice are you working in and do you like it? Is there a good job market in your area for your specialty? We just moved overseas and I am pretty isolated from the medical community here. I did not know any WHNPs at our last location either, just FNPs.

    Frontier Nursing Uni. Class 136

    I have been checking my email all day, too... just like I was all last week, and probably the week before that. This is a super crazy time in my life personally (selling my house, preping for a military move, this) I would just like for one thing to be set in stone! lol I know they closed this application period early. I hope we have some resolution soon!

    Frontier Nursing Uni. Class 136

    Next week is seven weeks out from Frontier Bound... we should hear something in the next two weeks according to their schedule. My birthday was last Thursday, so I was hoping for an early notification and a big birthday present! lol No such luck though. I hope everyone had good holidays!

    Frontier Nursing Uni. Class 136

    Their six-week out from Frontier Bound puts us as hearing from them the last two weeks of January.... somewhere after MLK day. I am hoping that if the other class got their info sooner, then perhaps we will get it a few weeks early, too. Fingers crossed!
