    Any MSN-FNP's here who decided to go back for DNP?

    I completed my DNP while working full time as a hospitalist. In fact, I passed boards and signed my current position's contract the same month I started my DNP. Three years and a few months later, I am still a hospitalist, and I have a terminal degree. For me, it was a personal goal, but I also hope it makes me more marketable. Plus, opportunities I hadn't considered are potentially on my radar, and I look forward to what the future brings.

    Asked about citizenship during triage

    I know for a fact that many immigrants fear this and put off seeking treatment . It's unfortunate and not right.

    Let's talk bonuses

    Look on clinical reviews dot com. Their December issue of 2016 had a piece about negotiating contracts and I think bonuses are discussed therein.

    How much do NPs in the Southeast really make?

    The average in my area of the grand strand is 85k to 90k a year in clinics but I'm at 120k as a hospitalist.

    Mispronunciations that drive you nuts

    I'm sensitive to that one because in show choir this was verboten. In fact, to fix that we were instructed to put the t at the beginning of the next word "I can't leeeve, i living is withow tyou."

    Hospitalist --- FNP or AGACNP?

    I am grateful that my employer prefers family nurse practitioners. However I would love to have the additional knowledge that the acute Care Program would have provided. When I have another year of practice under my belt I am considering enrolling in the University of Pennsylvania or is it Penn State program for acute care practitioner.
