    HELP!! with my purpose statement for fnp school

    This. I would recommend explaining why you want to be an FNP. What about the FNP role appeals to you? How will you be able to serve patients better in an advanced practice role? I would also explain a little about your decision for FNP versus ENP giv...

    St. Vincents RN Residency - Jacksonville

    I don't think so. They may have a requirement that you start working on your BSN within a certain timeframe through as they are working towards Magnet status. St. Vincent's has always been the most ADN-friendly hospital in town.

    St. Vincents RN Residency - Jacksonville

    I love it there. It was the only hospital I applied to because I love the culture they have cultivated in the community. We did recently go through a lot of upper management restructuring so there have been some bumps along the way but those kinks ar...

    St. Vincents RN Residency - Jacksonville

    St. Vincent's is rolling out their program this summer!! It's a well designed program and should be a great start for a new grad. I work there right now and know one of the educators who is spearheading the residency program.

    BSN Pay in Florida

    I think it is also dependent on where in Florida you are looking. I have heard from numerous people that South Florida (Miami area in particular) pays poorly. North Florida (Jacksonville area...where I am) will pay a new grad BSN around $25/hr in an ...

    Accepted to FNP program...now what?

    Thank you for your guidance. I too will be going to a brick and mortar school one day per week. We don't start clinical hours until the second year so that will help me to get my study habits in check before incorporating clinical hours into the mix....

    Accepted to FNP program...now what?

    Yes, I'm working!! Currently full time (3x12hr) days at the bedside on a tele unit. I'm exploring other employment options for a more fixed schedule (4x10hr) in an office setting which I think would promote better study habits. If that doesn't come t...

    Accepted to FNP program...now what?

    I don't have a list of required texts yet. However, I will certainly look into the books you recommended. I've had several people tell me to make sure I take time to spend with family, etc. so I'll certainly be doing some of that!! I'll be goi...
  11. I found out last week that I have been accepted into my first (only) choice MSN-FNP program starting this fall. I realize this will be a tough program to get through, even though I'm taking the part time track, and would like to do whatever I can to ...

    UK Nurse needing SSN for Florida License

    The only thing I can see might be a hang up with the EB3 is the fact that it states "You must be performing work for which qualified workers are not available in the United States." This could be construed as meaning if there are U.S. nurses availabl...
