    FNP Made to Work Alone?

    I work at a FQHC, which is stressful enough, but on occasion I have to work alone. They do not send help when my nurse has to be out. Has anyone else had to go through this? How many M.D.’s do you know of are expected to sometimes work alone? Did you stay at that organization?

    I also want to encourage those of you who did not receive the award to ask them why. This was my 3rd year applying and they said that I had been using an older release of info sheet. (Although they all look the same there is a tiny date in the lower right hand bottom). I did not think this was fair as I could have easily signed a new one, but I wouldn’t have know to be extra cautious this time is I had not asked.

    FNP Made to Work Alone?

    Thank you. I appreciate that. We did have a dentist. She quit crying after her dental assistant quit and they had her working alone. She said she was a danger to her patients trying to do both. Which was true. I have made calls and emails to other places for employment. No one is hiring (whose site score would allow me to keep my loan repayment). It really sucks.

    FNP Made to Work Alone?

    I did that the first time. Unfortunately I did not have any vacation time because I had been out with my mother. They took it from my check. I can’t afford to call in every time, my vacation time is still building.

    So I’m not crazy or “to big for my pants?” This IS unreasonable, right?

    FNP Made to Work Alone?

    I mean that I am to function as the nurse and the NP. I don’t know about your facility but mine wants us to see every patient that comes though the door. So if it’s 20-30 they should all be seen by me. I must call them back, get vitals, provide care, blood draws, PAP smears, EPSDTs, referrals, etc without a nurse. Just me and a receptionist! That’s what I mean by alone. They would scoff at having 2 MAs.
  7. Hi All, Has anyone ever transferred their loan repayment to a different site? For example to a different state? If so, did you have to have a compelling reason? Or, could you just move if you wanted to? Was it a hard and long difficult process or was it easy? How long did it take? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    No, I’ve mysteriously never been a finalist despite my always being Tier 1.

    Transfer HRSA Nurse Corps Site?

    Has anyone ever transferred their HRSA loan repayment site? If so, do you have to have a compelling reason (I just want to move)? Was the process hard/easy? How long did the process take? Any tips? Thanks!

    I actually received an email today too. Third time was the charm? Definitely tier 1, DTI 180%, FNP at score 19 FQHC. Nurse Corps On a side note, I was thinking I would be denied (again), so now I want to move to Dallas, TX. How easy/hard are these to transfer. The Dallas clinic score is 19 as well.
  11. I want to move from central Mississippi to Dallas, TX. I have 4 years of experience and currently make 101K. Would I be looking at a pay cut or raise? And, do you have suggestions on where to look for a job in the Dallas, Texas area? Thanks.

    Dallas, Texas Family Nurse Practitioner Salary

    Thanks for your help! Do you recommend a recruiting firm? And can you explain what you mean by “it will take more effort” to get my requested salary? I haven’t moved yet.

    This is also my 3rd year applying. And I am tier 1, so just know that there are apparently no automatic guarantees! . I was told that my application was marked ineligible last year because of the wrong date on a form?? But my application read eligible the whole time! If I hadn’t asked why I didn’t get it I guess I wouldn’t have known. Go figure.

    So even if you don't have $200k in loans, you can get turned down. Which is fine if they would just say this is a totally random award and not continue to claim that it's need based. But I do feel your pain.

    Actually, we never know the private circumstances of people so we shouldn't judge. But, Idk how they will know if you are likely to stay or not. One of the ladies I work with will be finishing her third year and is actively searching for new employment. My friend is going on her 4th year at a FQHC. This lady also went to schools that did not cost as much as my friends. She shouldn't be punished for going to a higher rated school. The stated purpose is that this is need based. I really don't see it, but they didn't ask me...

    I would like to wholeheartedly congratulate those of you of whom received the awards. I can only imagine how helpful it is. With that being said, these awards are no more need based than I am a polka dot centaur! Lol. I don't know how they award the repayment but if it really were, then how would Tier 2 people ever be awarded if I never was with a DTI of about 180%! An NP I work with has $60k of debt with $90k in salary. But like me my friend wasn't awarded, and she has $200k in debt with $99k salary. Not bitter just sayin'. I don't know.

    One of my friends shared with me that as a new NP at UMC, that his salary was roughly $75k.

    FNP Salary at UMMC/Baptist?

    Hello all, I have been an FNP for about 4 years with 3 years of work experience. I was wondering if anyone here would be kind enough to reveal (since we are all anonymous) the estimated pay scale at UMMC or Baptist Hospital. I currently work at an FQHC and I am becoming burnt out quickly. I love helping people but the policies here are burdensome. Any help will help! Thanks.

    Last year I received the 'you suck' email in late September. I haven't heard anything else so I suppose I'll be getting it again this year. 😔

    And unfortunately we won't. But what's wrong with wanting our own home?

    Absolutely! We are in the same boat!!! Ya know everyone working at a qualifying place should get an award of some extent. The government spends enough money each year on stupid stuff. They could do some actual good with our tax dollars!!!!!
