    Duke AGNP experience

    Hi, I just wanted to check among the group who is currently or have been in Duke's AGNP program and if you can please share your experience, from the orientation, teachers, the entire process, job placements - the good, bad and ugly :). I am having my interview on Sept 2 (Wednesday) and would love to hear all your thoughts about the program. And if you even have more tips to share for the interview process, that would be welcome too! thanks!

    Duke FNP Spring 2015

    hi! i can't send private messages yet. sorry i was not able to check my acct in the last few weeks. i have not heard anything yet. how about you? they did call me about the women's health. to be honest, i thought they were calling me regarding the decision. haha! i hate it that i have to wait as i want to make plans for the next year. it feels like your life is on hold and you're on a limbo. i hope they'd do a better job with the wait list. hope all is well with you too! keep me posted!

    I feel like I caused a patient's death and I can't get over it

    Jane82, i'm very sorry for what happened and i am sorry that you are in a bad situation in your career. unfortunately, you were set up for failure basing on patient's history. the urgency of your docs and the staffing issues on the facility. it was just a bad combination altogether. you did your best with what you know and that's what matters. surely, you did not come in to work that day with the thought you want to inflict harm on your patients. it will be a while before you get over this, but one thing i can promise you is: this will make you a better nurse. this incident will sharpen your intuition. i would be worried if you are not at all bothered by what happened. there will be people here on this thread that will criticize you for what happened, rather than support you. but do not let that discourage you. do not quit. everyday is a chance for improvement. learn from the experience, read more on trach care and other things you feel that you need to learn more. but do not quit. the world needs more caring nurses like you. skills you can learn, but genuine compassion, you can't. i hope you get over this soon. i'm pulling for you! if you need to talk, feel free to msg me. i'm sending you warm wishes!

    Georgetown University ONLINE FNP...

    thank you for the lengthy insight! i'm thinking of getting in an FNP program, and georgetown's program appealed to me the most. currently working 40 hours/week ( i love my job, no plans of moving ), so i will probably have to do the part time program
