    RODP FNP in TN? Anyone?

    I have secured a tentative preceptor. I am just waiting on the paperwork to be processed. I had to drop my Women's Health class for this semester and take it next semester (Spring 2015) which means that my graduation is delayed. Total bummer.

    Women's Health Preceptor

    Hi All, I know this topic is not a new one. However, I feel that I need to exhaust all options. I am a FNP Student with ETSU's RODP program. I am in search of a preceptor for Women's Health. Although I would love to precept with a NP, any MD, DO, or PA that works in this specialty and would be willing to precept for the Spring 2015 semester would be fantastic! I need to perform 120 clinical hours in this specialty. I had to drop the class for this fall semester because I was unable to secure a preceptor in time. I have joined the NP organizations and contacted NPs listed on those sites without success. I am licensed in PA but I am willing to drive and get licensed in surrounding states. If any of you have had success with finding a Women's Health preceptor on the east coast, can you please let me know who you used? I am open to suggestions for other resources I may have not thought about. I have even used the yellow pages and have tried asking for referrals. I appreciate any assistance that anyone can offer.

    RODP FNP in TN? Anyone?

    Does anyone currently attending rodp have access to the preceptor list? I am in PA but I am looking to get licensed in another state because of not being able to locate an OBGYN preceptor. Please let me know! Thanks for your help!
  5. lemur87, I am in the same boat as you. I am about to start clinical this summer and I feel like I am not prepared. Has anyone recommended any study guides or things that will help to be more successful in clinical? NurseAllie

    Nurse Practitioner Information Needed

    Hello allnurses! I am currently a FNP student and I am writing a research paper this week for my Roles class. Are there any practicing NPs out there that can answer some questions for me? I would be forever grateful. If you choose to answer, can you please include your first initial and last name so that I may cite you? If you don't feel comfortable answering here, please email me- allie@triminteriors.com. Thank you in advance! What is your current position and specialty? What is your philosophy/beliefs about your practice area? How did you find your first position after you graduated as a Nurse Practitioner? How would you advise new graduates to search for jobs in today's market? What is your prescriptive authority? What kind of practice privileges do you have? What system do you have for reimbursement? Has your function or role changed over the years? How so? Have you had a part in developing your role? How so? What are the major stresses/strains in your practice? Do you have a collaborative agreement? If so, can you please describe how it works? How do you show the value of your contribution to the practice? When you went to grad school, what was the most valuable aspect of your education? Least valuable? What do you know now that you wish you knew earlier in your career? Reference: Joel, L. A. (2013).

    I'm taking research, roles, theory, and policy. It looks like a LOT of reading! Trying to map out the semester now!

    RODP FNP in TN? Anyone?

    Hello, I am starting the RODP-FNP program this semester (today!). I'll be attending full-time. I was previously going to attend USA's BSN-DNP program but I changed my mind over the summer. So, here I am! Taking four classes this semester. Excited to get this underway!

    USA DNP fall 2013

    bryango I am not in your program but I am seriously considering switching....if possible...after my first semester. However, I am still uncertain. I am the sole provider in my family right now and that program sure does have a lot of clinical hours!

    I applied for the BSN-DNP FNP program for Fall 2013. I also just received the email stating that my acceptance packet is complete. Looking forward to completing the next steps. Exciting!

    Need info on jefferson fact!

    Allieisms, I wish I could dispel some of those horrible reviews but I can't. I was not in the FACT program so it may be a little different but I was accepted into the RN-MSN program for the Spring semester 2012. I completed all my requirements and even sent my non-refundable $500 deposit. My advisor (who was also going to be one of my instructors) was supposed to go through a small orientation with me. The office kept sending me emails stating that I had not met this requirement. Problem was, my advisor wasn't calling me back. I tried calling and emailing...nothing. Finally, I got ahold of her secretary who told me that she had been out. (For months? Who is taking over for her while she is out?) Then, late December, I got my financial aid package. The loans weren't going to cover the tuition. My FAFSA contribution was $0. So, I contacted the financial aid office. Do you think they offered any assistance? No. That was pretty much the straw that broke the camel's back. I felt like if I am going to pay this much money then I should get pretty good service. The experience was horrible. I decided at the last minute (I think Jan 3) to contact Widener for a Jan 9 start date. They were on winter break but the advisor called me back the same day from her cell phone and bent over backwards to get me in. I have nothing but good things to say about Widener. The advisor from Jefferson finally emailed me back the day after my acceptance to Widener. I told her the situation. I am sure they have plenty of people willing to pay all that money and be treated that way but I wasn't one of them. Also, if I couldn't get ahold of her for a basic orientation, how was the year going to go? I lost my $500 deposit but I feel like I made a good choice. That's just me. I am sure there are many who have had good experiences there. I'm just not one of them! Nurse Allie
