    ACHPN exam?

    Who said CHPN? Obviously, ACHPN core.

    ACHPN exam?

    I am currently enrolled in the CSU Insitute for Palliative Care course which will help me prepare for this exam. I have heard from friends who have taken this exam that the Core Curriculum book HPNA has is really the best thing to review before taking it.

    CCRN Certification

    Is an inpatient palliative care nurse practitioner that primarily cares for critical care patients in the ICU eligible to take the CCRN examination if they complete the required number of hours? Thanks in advance!

    What do you sign?

    I totally agreed just using "NP" across the board.

    New FNP in Inpatient Palliative

    I am a new grad FNP and I just accepted a position in inpatient palliative care. Any RNs or NPs in palliative? This will be my first job as an NP. I have 4 years of experience in PCU. Any tips or recommendations for me? What resources would you suggest to use? I want to be prepared. I have search allnurses for this but have not found enough answers. Thanks!

    Do I Need an Employer for DEA?

    I am a new graduate FNP in California. Do I need to be employed by a group or physician in order to apply for a DEA? Thanks!

    My first week as an NP

    Thank you for sharing. I'm waiting to start my first NP position and reading these eases the anxiety. Thank you!

    DNP Minimum Requirement

    This is also so difficult because there are so many certifying bodies out there for every APRN and populations. Family NP has 2 certifying bodies. It would be great I think if national certification was administered like the NCLEX so exams would be standardized in the national level.

    DNP Minimum Requirement

    With CRNAs recommending the DNP as the entry requirement for practice by 2025 and CNSs by 2030... when do you think state laws will require the DNP for APRN practice? Do you think this will happen within the next 10 years? 20 years? Never? I know this is a controversial topic but I think this will eventually be a positive push for APRNs.

    PA practice authority

    You're right, I was browsing through the user's previous posts and it seems like they've been very critical about NP education, practice and existence. Some cynicism is healthy for the progression of the profession but it's treading on hatred it seems like...

    PA practice authority

    I know there is also a movement in their community to rename their profession to "physician associate," "healthcare practitioner" or just "PA."

    DNP/PHD Dual Program Opinions

    The DNP is about practice application using the best evidence out there. The PhD allows the nurse to generate new knowledge. The 2 are very different but complimentary.

    PA practice authority

    More education? Besides having an undergraduate education related to healthcare (RN), NP programs are specialized. Although PAs may have the breadth, NP education has more depth due to specialization. PAs are trained as generalists, very different from NPs who were RNs first.
