    Starting own NP practice

    Thanks for all the helpful advice! Im interested to know about people's experiences with EMR/EHR in the private practice arena. I will be my only employee, and most of my patients will be Medicare. So cost is important consider the low reimbursement.

    Starting own NP practice

    I've recently been afforded an opportunity to start my own NP practice/business. I'm in Maryland and would love some info about starting one up and the legal stuff too. I'm obviously contacting the board of nursing and will be consulting with a lawyer, but just want some personal accounts and such. Thanks in advance.

    Cosmetic Procedures Injectables

    I would love some feedback regarding being an NP and cosmetic procedures, primarily injectables (i.e. botox/xeomin). I live in Maryland and I'm considering botox parties, I'm just starting my research and the legal aspects. Any and all info would be appreciated.

    AANP FNP Quick Study Plan

    This was really helpful. I take my boards (AANP) next week! And I too was psyching myself out a bit about not having ample study time. I have to agree with many things you've said. I however, went to the Fitzgerald review live in January before my last semester. I purchased the Leik book, and aside from typos, the book is rather helpful and concise. I am not a fan nor would I promote APEA. I purchased their QBank tests, and I am doing horribly on them. I do not feel their rationales are satisfactory, there are typos, and incomplete questions. overall it is a waste of money. I tried contacting the company and the owner contacted me nearly immediately on a Saturday afternoon of a holiday weekend, however, I have not heard anything since. I too did very well on the AANP Family practice exam. Thanks for the tip on the Adult-Gero! I'm going to stop with the practice tests at this point and focus on mastering pertinent information necessary in order to answer questions.

    How long after graduating can you sit for boards, and how long after you pass your boards does it take to complete credentialing? Trying to plan pregnancy/new baby/new job/moving.

    I graduate next May (2015) and I was wondering how long after graduation you normally sit for boards, and after you pass how long credentialing takes? Major life events after completing FNP school, just wondering how to plan them out: new job, new baby/pregnant/moving. Thanks!
