  1. I think some people are unaware of the hours of clinical hours a student NP has to have before becoming independent practitioners.
  2. Thank! There is an undue bias against us.

    When are you guys going to apartment search? Also, I am super nervous I won't have enough money to cover living expenses! Will we get enough loan money? And will we be able to pay the loans off when we graduate? I mean how much loan money are we talking about here in all, about $100,000? Can we pay that off on a np's salary? I guess I am still nervous about the debt.

    What apartments are some of you looking at. I have come across Tremont because it has a couple of positive reviews. But you never know who wrote them.

    @KN4321 I am in the FNP program. My letter was postmarked Feb. 17. Also I sent my application in, in September! That might also be why mine came so early.

    i'm freaking out here people!!!!!!!!!
  9. Thank you, I appreciate your encouragement. Unitedness-not separation-is what will help us to fight diseases such as cancer and not each other. Thank you.
  10. youprove my point. you are just lurking waiting to find mistakes so that you canmake yourself feel more important. i don't get it. so, from your logic isuppose you would not see a first year doctor or dentist? unless of coursethere was a "seasoned" doctor breathing down their necks. after all"they don't know what they don't know." or is it perhaps justprejudice against the young nurse practitioner because she has excelled without30 years of bedside care. the prejudice against new nurse practitioners is whatis arrogant. why not offer support. physician assistants, of whom are mostly male, still make more in somestates, just because they are male. how much bedside care experience do theyhave before practicing? would schoolssuch as vanderbilt and emory, even employ such programs if they werenot proven. these programs are not easy. this is advanced material taught by topprofessionals at top schools. how do you know how much experience is "goodenough?" are we all made of the same fabric? plus a nurse practitioner isnot necessarily doing the same job as an rn. perhaps next time you are peekingaround the corner trying to prove that the nurse practitioner did not cross her"t" you should try learning something. i suggest that whether or notyou spend some learning from that which you are against, you try to learn anawful lot from the nurse practitioner you encounter. unless of course you aretoo arrogant. i don'tneed to go to work every day facing prejudice and grudge heartedness. if we should offer assistance to each other, nomatter 1 year or 50 years, nursing offers something new every day. why notsupport each other?

    Thanks silverbelle. I guess I am just starting to doubt myself because it is nearing THAT TIME. Has anyone gotten their financial aid packet yet?

    Are the FNP applicants getting a phone interview too? I am really nervous now. I had a 3.7 gpa but only a 1000 gre score. I probably won't make it, will I?
  13. @Jollie Thank you so much. I have applied to a direct entry program. It seems that the only negative thoughts come from "seasoned RNs." From posts that I've read, they seem to convey the idea that "seasoned RNs" are the best and never make any mistakes. Yes mistakes can be dangerous, but doctors make mistakes, "seasoned RNs" make mistakes, and yes NPs make mistakes. But just to discount someone because they have not spent 20 years right next to a patient seems unfair. To me it airs on the side of jealousy and comes off very arrogantly. If you are good your good, if you are bad your bad. This includes doctors and nurses. The rivalry needs to stop.

    I am in the same situation. I really want to go to Vandy because I think they have a good program, I think the name will help me get a good job, and it is only 2 years. However, I am not the richest person in America and I am worried about how to pay for it. I wonder what living situations do others have also.

    I agree. Not only that, but theirs is actually the shortest program I have seen. So by the time you spend paying for by semester hours for other schools that have a longer program, I wonder if the money does not come out about the same?

    Vanderbilt Direct Entry Fall 2011

    Oh that's great! I am really happy for you. I am glad when anybody can achieve their dreams! That is so inspiring. I guess it couldn't hurt to just send in the application. The worst they can say is no, and then I still would not have lost anything.

    Thanks for the reply! I want to apply for the FNP program. I already have everything filled out and ready to send, I am just waiting for the earliest I can apply. I did find this website: http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/reporter/index.html?ID=4177 for info on a past class. I guess all I can do is hope. I really hope you do well. And thank you for the encouragement. We all need to stay in touch with each other!!

    Can I join the convo? I am also applying to Vandy. I need advice. I have already taken it twice. I got a 1000 and 4.0 writing score the first time and a 1010 and 4.0 writing score the second time. Should I take it again because the requirement is a 4.5? I don't think I am very competitive. I only have a 3.6 gpa but this semester I got a 4.0 in prereqs. Should I even try?

    Do you guys think that Vandy might have some leeway with the 4.5 Analytical Writing Score? I only got a 4.0, but I meet all of the other requirements.

    To the people that were accepted (congrats by the way) did you all have stellar GRE scores? Like I only got 1000 and a 4.0 on the analytical writing. So, I am thinking that I should not even apply. Would anyone mind sharing please? I really want to get in, but I don't see the point in the time and energy if there is no way. Thank you guys for any help you can give me.
  21. Have any direct entry NP graduates run into problems with finding a job and The Nurse Practice Acts. "The Nurse Practice Acts in several states require that nurses hold an earned degree (AAS/BSN in nursing) or a diploma in nursing prior to successful completion of the NCLEX examination in order to obtain a registered nursing license in that state." Some direct entry master's students who licensed via a certificate program and then continued on to obtain an MSN as the first nursing degree would not be able to be licensed in those states. I was wondering if anyone had a list of these states, or if any Direct Entry graduates have run into any problems.

    To Silverbelle: Do you remember how many FNP's they admit?

    To dedicatedone, I am in the same boat you are in. If you find out anything please message me or let me know as I am not allowed to send messages yet.

  25. For NP's in California, how difficult is it to practice. Can you practice in hopitals or elsewhere. Is it frustrating to have to have collaboration to order a test or prescribe? How does it work and what are your thoughts about it?
