    For-Profit NP admissions... I thought they were joking!

    Indeed. Very little psychopharm, a lot of common sense type questions and healthcare policy.

    I took my Psych NP boards in Oct 2018. I definitely overstudied. I thought the RN boards I took 10 years ago were more difficult.
  3. No, clinicals don't need to be near campus. They find you a placement close to your home.
  4. Yes from home. All you need is an internet connection and headphones (and some free software) and you dial in to the classes which typically meet once weekly. I do miss the personal interaction, but not worth driving 150 miles (one way) to have it. It's a great set up really.
  5. I just started this semester- I transferred in from another university, and start clinical in the fall. So far so good.
  6. I am also in the psych MSN program at Wayne. I am doing distance learning because I live between GR and Kalamazoo!

    How competitive are post-BSN to DNP programs?

    Many online programs require you to find your own preceptors. Something to keep in the back of your mind.

    persuing hospice

    Hi and welcome to All Nurses ! Hospice can be demanding and rewarding at the same time. The days are unpredictable like many other areas in nursing. Like the previous poster stated, some visits can take a lot longer than expected. Just please keep that in mind, especially if you are working on a day you have classes. All the best, Diane

    Methadone analgesia.

    Only certain providers will prescribe it; those with specialized training or experience. I have seen excellent results, especially when other opioids are not effective.

    Well, Isn't This Special

    Hospital administration is partly to blame for this nonsense. It all started to go downhill when hospitals began to refer to patients as "customers." They are successfully turning the healthcare industry into "customer service" industry, and we all know the slogan, "the customer is always right." UGH.... I truly believe we (healthcare workers) have lost respect from the general population because of this. Unfortunately, I'm not at all surprised to see this nonsense app created.

    interested in hospice

    Welcome to Allnurses! I would recommend shadowing a hospice nurse if possible, and/or apply for hospice CNA positions. Both would get you some exposure to hospice. All the best!
  16. OP, I'm also on Vyvanse and have had drug testing for new employment. Like many other posters stated, you will be fine as long as you have a valid RX. Congrats on your new position!!
