    Volunteer Opportunities in US

    Hello! Does anyone know of any state-side volunteer opportunities for AGNPs? Long or short term? Thanks!

    Delayed entry to field after graduation

    Hello! Thanks for the response. I've been researching women's and psych while working as an RN for now. I've also come across some residency programs, I just hope being out of school for 1 year does not disqualify me. I would really like to do that, even if it was right after graduation, to get that additional training would be awesome. Should have them everywhere!

    Delayed entry to field after graduation

    Hello all! I graduated an AGNP-PC program June last year, and finally took the certification exam (and passed!) this month. For personal reasons, I have had gaps in employment and also have delayed starting as an NP. Long story very short, one of the reasons is that I move with the military. And we will have had 3 moves in a 3 year period by Summer 2022. We are moving in about 2 months and will be in our next state for about a year, then another move to a new state for one year. Knowing all of this over the last year, I thought, well I picked a great time to graduate! I know NPs, especially new, are not quite as interchangeable as RNs. I've had several jobs where they know I am temporary due to moving with the military and it's not been a problem. I suspect it's different for NPs. I've accepted an RN job in the state we are moving to. I thought, I will never get an NP job being so temporary, so I didn't bother looking into it. Recently, I thought I'd check it out anyway, and licensing and all of that seems daunting and like it will take me the entire year we are there, so I might as well look at next year (starting Summer 2021) at this point. And we will only be in that location for one year, too! I guess my questions are: How long is too long out of school? At what point will I be absolutely unemployable as an NP? Are there resources for someone in my position? Even if it won't be used in the state I will live for the next year, should I continue with licensure so it is done and can be transferred later? I've also considered, before this mess, doing a cert in Women's Health. If I can manage that, will I be considered "new" and employable upon completion, even if I never use the AGNP education in the meantime? Thank you!!

    Are UK RN's considered LPN's in America?

    Does anyone here know anything about ANP programs in the UK? I am a US trained RN, and I want to continue my education. I'd like to do it in England, for travel fun, but I'd plan to come back to the US when I am done. Is there a particular school or program that is close to a US equivalent?

    Nursing Programs in the UK

    Hello! I am a (new) Registered Nurse, with a BSN from a US school, and I am a US citizen. I would like to continue my education, MSN or DNP or other post-bachelor's nursing degree, in England. I plan to come back to the States upon completion. I don't even know where to start! How can I find out what programs will be accepted here in the States when I am done? Does anyone recommend any particular school? Can international students work in the UK with a student visa? There is information out there for nurses who train in one country and want to work in another, but I have not found information for this situation in particular - going to the UK for school but coming right back to the States. Any information would be much appreciated!
