  1. Hi all, I am starting my last semester of FNP program next month and in dire need of a preceptor to complete 90 hours of primary care clinical experience with. I am in San Francisco Bay area, CA and looking to complete the hours in family practice, womens health, peds or urgent care. I must say finding preceptors is the most stressful part of my program as most providers are not willing to precept. I would appreciate any help PLEASE, commuting is not a problem. Thanks
  2. Hi all, I would be starting the FNP DNP Program at Samuel Merritt University in Summer 2017 and would like to get this thread started for prospective 2017 students FNP MSN/DNP students I would also appreciate comments from current or past students of SMU FNP MSN/ DNP program. Any contribution such as when you expect to graduate or when you graduated, advice about the program, clinicals, classwork demands would be appreciated. I hope to get to meet prospective May Cohort students here. Looking forward to read from you all. Thanks

  4. Hi all, I work on a Medical Surgical Telemetry unit as a Registered Nurse in the Bay Area. I would like to know which hospitals pay the highest in the Bay/Northern California area to RN's. The top 5 hospitals that pay the most please and if you happen to have a range of what they pay, kindly include in your responses. Thanks for all your feedbacks.
  5. Hi all, I am a Registered Nurse on a Medical Surgical Telemetry unit. My career goal is to become a Family Nurse Practitioner in primary care and i would like to work on the unit(s) which will be relevant to my future career path. This brings me to the questions, which unit(s)would better prepare me for my career as a FNP in the primary care setting I am looking at transferring to ICU, but not sure if this will be the best move considering that i will be working in clinics and/ health centers. I was thinking ICU is best for those who want to become Acute Care Nurse Practitioners. I am not sure about ED and how it would prepare me for my journey. I also thought of ambulatory setting. After giving it so much thought and knowing that i do not just want to rack up years of experience on units that will not be of much advantage to my career path, hence decided it is best to put this out here to hear opinions from you all. Also, what minimum number of years would be best to have on each recommended unit(s). I know that might also be based on individual comfort level. I would appreciate your responses and advice please. Thanks

  8. I am a Registered Nurse planning to relocate to the Bay area soon. I am seriously considering going for Family Nurse Practitioner program, but skeptical as i have some questions that need answers before i can make the next career move. I know how hard it is for newly licensed Registered Nurses to secure jobs in the Bay area and that will be the last thing i want to go through after spending about $100k for graduate education. I would appreciate if prior or current FNP's in the Bay area can help clear the air please. How is the job market for new grad FNP's in the Bay area. Will i struggle like new RN's to land an FNP position as a new graduate? What is the salary range of FNP'S in that area(I know this is more personal and i appreciate whatever information i can get) Is it worth it to work as an FNP in the Bay area as opposed working as an RN. From what i have read, it seems the pay is not much of a difference. Thanks for your responses.

    UC Davis New Grad Residency

    I believe so. From what I have read here, seems they don't send rejection emails.

    Stanford RN Residency March 2015

    Me too, guess they are using both interchangeably or one process comes before the other. Well, I wish everyone goodluck. Did anyone apply to UC Davis as well?

    new grad RN programs in northern California

    Hi. I am in the same situation presently and wondering if you finally got a job in California. I will be graduating from a BSN program in December and already feeling frustrated on getting a residency program/job in the Bay area because of the competition. My fiance lives there and moving will be impossible if I don't get an offer there. Curious to know if you finally got a job in CA or had to stay in Nevada for some yrs of experience as that will be my second option, to stay in Pennsylvania for 1-2 yrs to gain some experience before relocating.

    Stanford RN Residency March 2015

    I applied for the rn residency program as well and my status shows 'application in process'. Did everyone else go through this stage before it changed to 'application in review'?
