    Pediatric Nurse Practitioner jobs

    Hi all! I am in the process of moving to the Gig Harbor area this summer/fall and have been having a bit of a hard time locating employment. I have had no such luck with Seattle Children’s or Mary Bridge. Are there any Pediatric Urgent Cares or private practice locations that you know of? Any information on leads would be greatly appreciated! Respectfully, ashlie

    Regis FNP, PNP online

    Hi! I'm currently in thier ONLINE MSN program, going into my 4th semester in Jan. So far I like Regis and have not had too many issues with it being a new online program. The dean is readily available when needed, the professors call and check in on you to Make sure you have the tools needed to do your work. There are some technical issues that I've come across, but IT fixes it fairly fast. Overall I don't think it is a horrible program. Feel free to inbox me if you have any questions.

    Maryville v USA v Regis (PMHNP)

    I'm going into my third semester at Regis, C/O May 2019. Out of the four courses I've done so far, two of them did have group work... We have Skype meetings about every other week, the professors call you out of the blue to check in on you and ask if you have any questions. I was told that they do this because students don't reach out when they are drowning, so the professor calls randomly just to check in on you. My total program is only 33k, I'm not sure why yours is so expensive. There is a ton of support with this school, and besides it being hard work, I love it. I'm glad I picked a school with standards and is not just giving away a degree.

    New NP student...help!

    OP: I'd most definitely stay where you are. It's easier, to me, to focus on my studies since I know my job fairly well. I think it would hard to learn a new role while going to school. I decided not to become ECMO certified (my dream) due to not wanting to study for both ( PNP and ECMO) at the same time. BettieRN- I'm currently going into my 3rd semester at Regis and I like it so far. Be prepared to do ALOT ofstudying and writing papers. PM if you have other questions.

    Hanhart syndrome

    Wondering if anyone here has taken care of a sweet baby with Hanhart syndrome with ventriculomegaly ex vacuo? I'm taking care of an infant with this syndrome and can't seem to find any journals with the two diagnoses together. Any information on education, support groups for parents would be greatly appreciated.

    Regis College Online FNP

    Hi! i am finishing my second class at Regis, via online. I am doing the Pediatric NP program, and so far I do not have any complaints. The professors seem to actually want to help you so you can succeed in the class, and they communicate with them class frequently throughout the week with tips and updates. They have weekly skype sessions for students to talk and ask questions. The Director of the program also holds weekly skype sessions to speak with her as well. The first class I took in January was nursing theory, it wasn't hard at all, just lots of research and busy work. The only thing I did not care for was all of the group projects that was required. It was totally doable working 72hrs/2weeks. I am almost done with the second class, currently on week 7. I actually like this class, it is for leadership. Not a lot of busy work, just posts and 2 papers.... 10-12 pages long. This coming May I will be doing 2 16 week courses, I can't remember what they are at the present time, but one class has already stated to have a topic in mind since a 20 page paper will be due at the end of the quarter. This is all that I can remember at the current time, please feel free to inbox me or reply to this, if you have any questions.

    Would you say that they are not properly educated? Thank you for responding!

    Thank you. I looked and saw that the College is a certified center for excellence, so that is what made me look into it further. Not that many colleges are, from what I've heard. Did you go to Regis?

    Regis FNP, PNP online

    Hi everyone! I am looking for current information on Regis College online MSN program. I am still in the early stages of looking fit schools, and I was told about this school from one of the PNPs at my hospital. Are there current students or recently graduated students here who wouldn't mind answering a few questions? Thanks in advance!

    New grads in specialties without the basics

    I am doing a 16 week new grad residency program in the NICU. I think maybe hospitals should make all new grads do a residency program no matter what floor they get hired on. Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    TurtlesRcool- I didn't think of it that way. Thank you all so very much with helping me with this decision. All of my classmates are telling me to just do the tele job since there is no pay reduction during the training. ICU is where my heart is at, and I really want and am grateful for this opportunity. It's really exciting to know that I'll be an ICU Nurse. Once again, thank you all! Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    I'm not too sure why either. I will get a higher base pay once the 4 months are done with so I guess I'll suck it up and deal. I really do not understand the whole lack of benefits thing, I'll probably ask the recruiter when I give them my answer. Thank you for the response! Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    Nope, just me and my lonesome! I think you are right, I'm just going to jump in! Sent from my iPhone using allnurses

    Thank you all for the advice. I misread the the benefits package for the ICU, it starts after the Residency ends. I think I am going to stay with the ICU residency, spoke with the director about the success rate of the new grads on the floor and he said about 75%, so I'm not too sure if that is the reason for the low pay. Maybe as a company as a whole? Do you guys think it is possible to actually do the three 12's, and 8 hr education class and do a prn shift every week? Sent from my iPhone using allnurses
