    Acute Care PNP role

    Thanks! The experience I was talking about was actually Acute Care PNP positions, as do they hire new grads without acute care PNP experience? (aside from RN experience) :)

    Acute Care PNP role

    Yes :) Well I am looking into private schools as where I live there aren't any at the state schools I know its expensive, and wanted to know what the job market was like and pay was for an acute care vs primary care and if I could justify the costs.

    Oncology NP

    Are there any hem/oncology NPs here? Can you tell me what your job is like? What is your role in the specialty? Responsibilities and how your skills are utilized in your practice/hospital in conjunction or independently of physicians? What is your schedule like? Is there a big difference between work in peds vs adults in this specialty, except with working with families? Do you find it rewarding and glad you chose this specialty over others? Thanks!

    Acute Care PNP role

    Hello I am thinking about doing a post-masters in acute care pediatrics. Anyone who frequents this forum in this specialization? What are the job prospects/demand like for this role? What is the schedule like? Is it just as demanding as an RN-nights/weekends? What the job responsibilities? How competitive is it without experience to get jobs in this field? How is the pay compared to outpatient? I ask because if I go back to do this it could cost anywhere from 50k-80K for me. And really want to know if its a good ROI. I love the NP role, but I am bored working in the outpatient setting. TIA!

    FNPs in ED

    Hello! With the consensus model sweeping the USA, do you think at the end of it all eventually FNPs will not be able to work in EDs? Fast track either? Lots of states already won't accept FNPs into their EDs (whether fast track or not I am not sure) but ACNP seems to be the norm which I don't understand. If we already work in the ED as an APP will hospitals require us to go back and get that additional certification at our own expense? I know much of this is still speculation but just curious...

    U.S. RN wanting to work in England

    Have you taken the OCSE exam yet, or are you moving before you do that? Do you have to work as a CNA for 6 months or something like that as well before you can take the exam? Curious, because I read that somewhere...

    Yes this....

    FNP to PA?

    Thanks for all the responses! I tried looking into doing RNFA on my own to make me more marketable. But I need a preceptor for that and no one wants to take on a student unless you're employed by them, but they don't necessarily want to hire you either bc you don't have the RNFA already. It's been a vicious cycle.

    FNP to PA?

    Definitely wouldn't that I am aware of

    FNP to PA?

    Hello Are there any FNPs in this forum who regret becoming an NP? Not in the context of advancing their education and moving into a provider role but that they went to NP school instead of PA school? I have beyond frustrated that the only jobs I am able to get and eventually work in are primary care clinics. I know the FNP role was developed as an outpatient primary care provider but I didn't think specialities like EM, cardiology or orthopedics would be closed off to me. I have also been applying for fellowships and most of them only want PAs (even if we are all new grads). Hindsight is 20/20. I also did a direct entry program so I have limited RN exp (which was fine with my because I always wanted to work in a provider like role). I just didn't realize how much it would be used against me compared to new grad PAs. Do you know of any FNP who went back and became a PA? Or would that just be ridiculous?

    U.S. RN wanting to work in England

    May I ask what you are going to school for? Did they give you significant scholarship to attend or are you using US loans? Curious, as I am thinking about the same thing... Also, regarding this issue of visa and sponsorship...say hypothetically you are on a fiancee visa, etc do you still need a hospital to sponsor you or any work post for that matter? Or will this type visa suffice to authorize you to work there? If you are married to a Brit...does that also require you to have a visa to work?

    Thinking of giving up FNP program

    How much do non-travel RNs make in the southeast? Can it be more than FNPs but with significant overtime, nights or weekends?

    Ask me anything, Australian RN here

    Is this salary enough to live in the bigger cities like Melbourne or Sydney? As a US citizen will they be keen on hiring theatre nurses in the bigger hospitals (with experience)? Or even Brisbane? How are you enjoying your career and life in Australia? Thanks!
