    Will an Online BSN degree be accepted for CRNA programs?

    I really think your best bet would be to contact a few CRNA schools you would be interested in applying to and talk to admissions directly. Anyone else would really just be guessing..... Good luck!

    Brenau University FNP

    I do not have personal experience however I have a couple of friends who attended Brenau. They liked the school and passed boards..... Good Luck!

    Does it matter where I get my MSN-FNP?

    I think you should do a search for this question as there will be many varied answers. Depending on where you are looking, some employers do "care" about your school. I always encourage students when in clinical to treat it as a job interview. Many places hire previous students.....They know you and you know them..... Good Luck!

    Work-life balance?

    Is it possible to save templates in an word document and then Cut and Paste into Allscript? This isn't ideal but it may help some....Good luck that sounds like a tough situation. Bobbi

    Where do you practice as a NP?

    I work in subacute rehab with an internal medicine group. We function very similar to hospitalist's

    What is it like working as NP in GA? Salary expectations??

    Georgia is a very "who you know" state..... at least in Atlanta. Pay is all over the place. Also many hospitals are transitioning and requiring Acute Care to be in the hospital. Bobbi

    Can an FNP...?

    As an FNP in Georgia (Atlanta area), MANY postings for jobs are very specific if they want an Acute NP or not. Many of the Atlanta hospitals are not hiring FNPs for inpatient care unless you have experience or were an NP prior to (I Think) 2015, (not sure where the date comes from, but I guess they think the training has changed since then). Also many job postings that involve hospital rounding with specialty are also requiring Acute certification. The good thing is..... if you don't want to work in a hospital this will not be a problem.... :) Good luck to you and make good contacts during all your clinical rotations. These will be very useful once you are job hunting. Bobbi

    Anyone know how long to get a DEA in Ga

    Yep this is exactly what I did. Having the protocol is what took so long, like a month.... DEA was quick.

    Anyone know how long to get a DEA in Ga

    Mine took about 2 weeks...as a new grad.... This really should not be a difficult process for you. Good Luck.

    Emergency NP Boards (AANP)

    Thank you so much for this. I am a new FNP and seriously considering taking the ENP exam. I have an ER background as a nurse, and I would like to work in an ED as an NP.... This was very helpful! Bobbi

    How much do NPs in the Southeast really make?

    I am a new grad FNP with 12 years nursing experience in the ATL. My salary is 100,000 base plus monthly productivity bonus. I must have 150 encounters per month to make base (easily done). If I go over 175 I receive a bonus of $55 per encounter which adds up very quickly.

    Working before credentialing

    I did this as well, as per my contract I was paid 60% of my NP salary and my preceptor was paid the additional 40%. Then when all of the credentialing went through I got my full paycheck. This worked nicely for me as I didn't have to stay at my RN job, and it "forced" my job to orient me (although this wasn't really an issue). Some would question the 60/40 split, however the 60 was what I made as an RN so no real issue for me..... :)
