  1. Pathway to DNP

    There are BSN - DNP programs. If you are applying to a DNP you don't need too much experience applying because your first 2 years of the program are usually research based courses. If doing a RN - MSN program you may want to gain experience as an RN ...
  2. NP role in the Neuro ICU

    Hello, I work in a Neuro ICU that has no NP's or PA's working. Only residents. I am curious about the role and skills NP's perform in the environment. Could someone please help educate me on the topic? I appreciate your time greatly, thank you! Mowb...
  3. ANCC vs AANP?

    Hello, Being a Canadian that works in Michigan, I am clueless about the difference between writing your NP exam for ANCC or AANP. Both lead to licensure? If so, why have two different boards credentialing and writing exams? Why write one vs the othe...

  11. NP vs PA duties in critical care

    Hello, I have recently been hired in the Neuro ICU in Michigan, where the only mid-level providers are PAs. I am interested in going for the ACNP to be a critical care NP. At my father's hospital NPs and PAs have the same tasks, pay, etc. Although at...
  12. Transducer Placement?

    In the CCU at my hospital we tape it to the pt, putting it on a poll leaves to much room for error and variability.

  14. New Grad Hired

    Hello, I was just hired to start working in a Neuro ICU in Michigan starting late August. I was curious if any experienced nurses could explain common medications, diagnosis, and equipment that I should review before starting in a month and a half. I...
