  1. Hi all, Im curious if anyone out there has taken the "Post MSN FNP Certification" route to become an FNP. Let me know your experience! What schools would you recommend for the FNP? Thanks!

    MSN to FNP?

    Hi all, Just a general question regarding FNP programs. Does anyone know of what track someone would take when moving from an MSN (in education or 'leadership') to becoming FNP exam-eligible?
  3. Hi everyone, I'm looking into NP programs, and the eligibility requirements and am finding myself confused. While I was in school, an instructor has mentioned that in 2015, all APRNs will have to get a DNP in order to become certified. However, all of the research I am seeing is making it appear that this is not the case. So, here's the question: does one require a DNP in order to be eligible for an APRN role? Or does a masters degree with appropriate certificates still suffice? Also, resources would be appreciated! Thank you! Joseph

    Finished my MSN this morning - ask me anything!

    Thank you for being so receptive to questions! I am nearly done with my associate RN program and am looking at schools to continue education through. 1) It is my understanding that the classes for WGUs RN-BSN are done one at a time, at your own pace. On average, how long did it take to complete a class? 2) How are the e-books delivered? Is it via Kindle format? Did they send an ebook disc to you? 3) How did you find WGU regarding credit transfers? I was on the phone with a rep from WGU today and they are refusing to view my transcripts until I am finished with my ASN and working as an RN. 4) How did proctored exams work? I've heard there's a webcam involved...

    How to Become IV certified.

    I'm simply trying to gain more experience as I'm certain ill eventually need the skill. I figure it can only help as far as finding a job goes. I understand that hospitals usually require their nurses to be IV certified through the hospital regardless of prior certification. I've been taught everything about IVs, just have not been trained on how to place one. It would be great if someone could provide a resource or company that offers certification.

    How to Become IV certified.

    Hello, I am a certified CNA, wrapping up my first year of nursing school. As is becoming the standard, I am not going to be IV trained during this program (I guess it normally happens as an on the job training now days). I'm looking into becoming IV certified over the summer, but have no idea where one can acquire such certification or what requirements it may have. Any input is helpful! By the way, I live in Minneapolis mn. Thanks! Joseph Gundlach

    Capella's RN to BSN program

    What do you mean? It's accredited by the CCNE as are many other competing schools.
  9. Hello everyone, I am nearly done with my first year of nursing school. I am in an associates program, and will continue on to receive a BSN after I graduate. Currently, I am looking in to Capella's RN-BSN program. It seems pretty solid as it is accredited by the same organization as my current nursing school (a community college), not to mention their per-credit-hour cost is lower than most schools. However, I've heard both positive and negative remarks regarding for-profit schools in general. Personally, I don't see why I wouldn't receive an education worthy of a BSN at Capella. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced first-hand (or through friends/family) how Capella's RN-BSN program works and whether its worth looking in to. Any advice is appreciated!
  10. Hello, * I will be taking the HESI A2 in January and am currently studying and preparing for the test. I was wondering, is a reference sheet provided for the exam? I am talking about a reference sheet containing info such as formulas for physics, chemistry, and math.* Also, is a calculator provided for each and every math problem (regardless of level of*difficulty)? Thank you for your help!
