    Letters after name? FNP, APRN, etc

    And then if you are certified by PNCB it will be CPNP-AC or CPNP-PC.

    Does it really matter?

    Also, you were given good advice on going to a program who arranges your clinicals for you. I would also recommend you talk to students currently in the program or recent grads if possible, to make certain that what you are told matches what really happens.

    Does it really matter?

    I agree that you should look into the schools' reputations with those doing the hiring as well as board pass rates. All programs are not created equal. I went to a public univ with a combo on-line/in-class classes. I did find that I enjoyed being in class for more and there tended to be less busy work.
  6. You should be fine. The error was corrected. Did you double check with your preceptor and the patient that the list is correct now? If so, relax.

    MSN to NP -how to?

    Wright State in Fairborn has been very good at post masters PNP programs. People drive from Cinci and Columbus for it. Cheaper than OSU and UC.

    Collaborating physician problems

    I'm sorry your first job has gone so poorly. He sounds like a terrible person to work with and I think you'll be much happier in a supportive environment. I hope you find something else very soon.

    Why is the answer to this question Metabolic Alkalosis?

    It's late and I'm tired, but loss of bicarbonate, your buffer, makes you more acidic. Normally your body compensates by normalizing your pH, not going alkalotic unless I'm misunderstanding what you're saying.

    Can anyone relate to delay in providing employee contract?

    I am employed by a large, highly regarded hospital but it was still several weeks before I saw my contract in writing.

    Title Question

    I thought if your certification was still current, you can still use it. Mine is: me, MS, CPNP, CCRN

    How to make up for this

    One time got you fired? That seems very harsh if you weren't already in the disciplinary process. I would also call or write a letter and explain.
