  1. Am I Crazy? A New NP Story

    If only, I wish I could do a fellowship. But there aren't really any here in Florida, oddly enough. And when I brought up an out-of-state fellowship to my husband right after I graduated, let's just say he wasn't on board LOL.
  2. Am I Crazy? A New NP Story

    It’s kinda funny you say that about answering questions and triaging…because they have me doing that too LOL. Sigh 😞
  3. Am I Crazy? A New NP Story

    Thanks for your response! I could not agree more. Being an RN and an APRN is so different! During the interview process, I did relay those concerns. I was assured I wouldn’t be expected to be at the level of an seasoned NP. And because my credentiali...
  4. Am I Crazy? A New NP Story

    Hi all, I am a new grad NP who took a job as a cardiology NP for a smaller, private practice. My background has been both inpatient and outpatient cardiology for the past 6 years. But obviously this is a new role to which I need to acclimate. I...
  5. I just got a job as a new graduate with a private cardiologist however I will be rounding in hospital and require credentialing. I have a history of depression and anxiety and I am being treated outpatient by a therapist and a psychiatrist. The ...
  6. Does Palliative Care Limit Career Path?

    Hello all, I'm thinking about applying for a local NP residency for Palliative Care. However, I have heard from many others that you can get pigeonholed and job offers are few once you want to leave Palliative care. Is this true? Or s...
  7. Hi all, I just graduated 2 weeks ago from an AGACNP program. I’m waiting to sit for my exam and get my license. Is it worth it to even apply for jobs until I have my license? Also I’m concerned my market is saturated. So much for needing medica...
  8. Barkley AGACNP Live vs Online Course?

    Hi Everyone, I am an AGACNP student who is graduating next month. I wanted to take the Barkley's AGACNP Cert Live Review but the only one local to me is next week LOL. I see there's an online streaming review course right when I graduate? Has a...
  9. Hi everyone, Has anyone got a new RN license just for an out-of-state clinical opportunity? I know it sounds crazy.
  10. New protocol - No report from ER to floor...

    LOL! Yup! Sounds about right! A few times I had to float down to the ED just to work overflow. And MANY of the nurses down there flat out told me they called report right before change of shift so they could get rid of their patients and not get anot...
  11. New protocol - No report from ER to floor...

    You don’t think you are perpetuating the US vs THEM mentality. Almost your entire post is a big sob story for the ED. You think floor nurses don’t have charge nurses breathing down their necks? What about administrators who literally go room to room ...
  12. New protocol - No report from ER to floor...

    I am sorry but you could not be more misguided and wrong. You are just as guilty of not looking at it globally. Especially with the snide comment, "The floor nurse is no hurry to take it" about report. You think that floor nurses are the only ones t...
  13. New protocol - No report from ER to floor...

    I could have not said it better. Some of the worst report I received or charting I have seen is from the ED. They didn't know crap about the patient they supposedly were "treating." The only concern was sending them upstairs. Which usually screws ove...
  14. How to Get Accepted to NP Fellowships?

    I realize that NP Fellowships are few, far between and competitive. I wanted to know if anyone who has been accepted to this fellowships, what set your application apart? What recommendations for these fellowships? Besides GPA, what would work in my ...
  15. ANCC Cardiac Vascular Certification Exam

    Really??? Only six hours total study time? Damn, maybe this is all in my head LOL. I worked inpatient interventional cardiology and outpatient cardiodiagnostics. I will say I feel like the Mometrix Study Guide was good enough. But the questions seem ...
