    Flight RN to NP

    Drewseph92,! As stated TraumaRUS, I have seen many people do the same route. I have only been doing flight nursing for the past 4 months and truly enjoy it. You have to give 100% of your time through academy and after that there is continuing education each quarter. I just finished ACNP school the beginning of the month. I have spoke to many doctors and board members and they said that an ACNP new graduate who have experience with flight nursing looks good on the resume. As you had stated flight nurses will have 3-5 years experience in ED/ICU prior to even being hired. A new graduate ACNP who may not have many years of experience compared to a ACNP/flight nurse with a minimum of 3-5 years of acute care would be more appealing to a hiring manager in my opinion. But that’s just me!

    Flight RN to NP

    Hey guys so I decided to go with the Flight RN route. I have roughly about a year of ED experience with 3 years of ICU under my belt. I got hired on and cannot wait to start but had a few questions. I am about to finish my NP school in June and start this April for rotor flight nursing. I plan to work as a flight RN for a year before I attempt to find a NP job (AM I MAKING A GOOD CHOICE?) Is it possible to work as an NP full time and an NP? I know I've heard that people do flight nursing part time with NP fulltime. Just wanted to see if anyone is currently doing it. Any advice for gear will highly be appreciated ( I will search through the forum too).

    okay thank you!! Another question if i may ask. I know how chamberlain is pretty strict saying if you don't get an average of 76 on All pre-licensure nursing courses you can't pass the class. What is considered pre-licensure courses? Is microbiology considered pre-licensure course or is it the main nursing courses that they are talking about. Ex. nur-222, nur-224 etc. Thank you

    Hi i have a question someone can possibly answer for me. I am about to start the class Nr-222 will I need to start wearing scrubs for that class? If not, when will we have to start wearing scrubs? I know people say you start wearing scrubs when clinical start. What exactly is the first class that incorporates clinicals.

    does anybody know if students have to wear scrubs to class everyday? I know most of nursing schools do but i wasn't sure if Chamberlain does.

    I had everything paid off at least thats what my advisor told me. I guess thats one of the downfalls with Chamberlain College, them handing out schedules a week or so before classes start. Thanks for the information :)

    Has anybody got their schedule yet? I feel bad but I have been bugging my advisor the past two weeks and she keeps telling me that I should know by the end of the week. Has anybody have had the same problems?
  9. I think you should be fine I applied last summer for the october start and got accepted with a GPA of 3.5 and a HESI score of 89 %. But i decided to start this upcoming spring semester. But i think you shouldn't worry to much with a GPA and Hesi score like that. Hope to see all you guys this upcoming semester.

    Hi everyone I too will be starting this upcoming semester. I was just looking at the website and was a bit concerned. I was told that chamberlain college was accredited which is true. But according to the website it states that the BSN program in "Arizona and Addison are candidates for accreditation by NLNAC". So please correct me if i am wrong, does that mean the BSN program in Arizona is not accredited yet? I'm worried that I will be spending all this money to go to a school that might not even be accredited. Does anyone know when they will have their visit and become an accredited institution? Once we do compete the BSN program and the school is still seeking for accreditation or is still not accredited will we be able to sit and take the NCLEX? I just did some research on the Arizona State Board of Nursing approved programs and it was on the list. The list stated that it is approved by the CCNE and NLNAC. What does it mean if is has an provisional approval of 11/2007? Should i still be worried?
