  1. Boards

    So sorry this happened to you. I would definitely try to take a deep breath, get up and dust off your clothing as it was a little stumble. It was also an experience that you can use as ammunition for the next round. I would certainly consider registe...
  2. Job Search New FNP

    I would definitely start the process during middle or latter part in your last semester. Certainly evaluating job market for the area. See if the area also has an NP program, as it may make it tougher if competing in a new market with local candidate...
  3. Nurse Practitioner Restrictions

    NP's in Texas are required to have a collaborating physician and a prescriptive authority to then be able to prescribe DMEs, dangerous drugs (formulary) and controlled substances Schedules 3-5. We are "given the authority" to do so by said collaborat...

  8. Do you text your patients?

    I do not give my cell number to patients.
  9. AANP failed

    I am so sorry. I know this can be very upsetting, but also perhaps a learning experience. FIRST, take a small break and then gather your thoughts. Do you usually do well on exams? Did your school have you take HESI exam? During the testing, did you ...
  10. UT Houston interviews 2011

    Is anyone interviewing at UT Houston 2011/2012?
  11. is O.R. good experience for CRNA's?

    Duke will accept OR experience for admission into their Nurse Anesthesia program. They, however, are the only program that does.
