    WGU FNP 2020-2021

    Overall I like the leadership program. Initially when starting nursing school I wanted to go to FNP school. But over time, that’s changed. Part of me still wants to do NP, but I can see myself more in administration. I don’t regret going this route because I was undecided. And if I ever want to do FNP, I can apply to a post master’s program. I’m glad WGU now has a program because I can apply there without having to worry about credits transferring. I know that was a concern for others in the past due to the pass/fail grading.

    It looks you can go for the BSN- MSN program. For those of us that will have MSN already, we have to wait for more details.

    WGU FNP 2020-2021

    Hi everyone! I’ve seen several posts on this site about WGU potentially starting a FNP program. I’m currently in their BSN-MSN Leadership and Management program. I received an email from the College of Health Sciences about the FNP program starting this year for BSN-MSN students and post masters FNP starting in 2021. Any anyone else get the email and interested in the program? Any alumni get the email and planning to start? I know it’s limited to 12 states currently.

    AGACNP vs Nurse Executive Leadership/Administration

    I was torn between going back to school for FNP vs Leadership and Management. I ultimately chose Leadership. I've been a nurse 3 years, most of that in outpatient care. Initially I wanted to become a provider, but after working in primary care and working closely with FNP's, I decided I didn't want that responsibility. Also, majority of my jobs had terrible leadership, so I was drawn to wanting to be in a position to make positive changes in leadership. I think it boils down to what your interests are and what you see yourself doing, like the other poster said. I worked in very busy clinics and I could not see myself being responsible for seeing so many patients day in and day out, prescription refills, tons of charting, etc. I know each clinic/setting is different but I can see myself more on the administrative side of things. Good luck in whatever you decide!

    Jobs for RNs

    I understand how the OP feels. I hated being the hospital, even when I was doing clinical for school. I always felt rushed and overwhelmed. I only went because I was told to get a year of med sure experience. But I left after the 6 months. I’ve work in outpatient settings and I love it. Patient education was always my favorite and now I have time to do it. I’ve done wound care and primary care, and I’m about start in public health since I relocated. Just because I hated the hospital doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be a good instructor. When I was paired with students at the facilities I worked at, they always said I did a great job and I was very thorough when explaining things. OP keep trying different areas until you find your niche. I got jobs that I didn’t think I would get.

    Should I try LTC?

    Thank you! I’ll definitely look into shadowing.

    Should I try LTC?

    Thank you so much! The Big Two are the only option besides corrections nephrology. I’ll definitely see about shadowing in a clinic.

    Should I try HD?

    That makes sense, thanks!

    Should I try LTC?

    Thank you so much for your detailed response! You've definitely given me something to think about. Part of me is drawn to LTC because of the versatility and being able to see so many different things. But the amount of pts to be responsible for is scary.

    Should I try LTC?

    I am looking for an environment that has advancement opportunities. I want a position where I can continue to use nursing skills and eventually end up in leadership.

    Should I try LTC?

    Thanks for responding! It’s sad that work conditions in LTC are so bad! I feel bad for the people that call these places home. What area of nursing do you work now?

    Should I try LTC?

    Thank you for your response! I've been leaning toward dialysis, although I've heard terrible things about it too. I know each specialty has pros and cons though. The nurse/patient ratio in LTC scares me. The hours with dialysis are long and management is not always good, but that can be anywhere.

    Should I try LTC?

    Hello, I've never worked in LTC. I've read so many horrible things about this area of nursing. I will be relocating in a few months and there are several LTC jobs available, both skilled nursing homes/rehab and retirement community. Is there much difference between the two? Is working at a retirement community less stressful? What about assisted living? I'm torn between trying LTC and outpatient dialysis. Thanks!

    Thank you!

    Should I try HD?

    Thank you so much for your detailed reply! I will be relocating in a few months and I see so many dialysis positions available in outpatient clinics. I'm really considering trying it out. I worked at an outpatient wound center for a year and we saw the same patients every week. You really get to know the patients and their families. The work schedule for dialysis is also appealing to me. Right now, I work in a primary care clinic 5 days a week and I would like to go back to 3 or 4 days per week. I know dialysis calls for early mornings and I'm ok with that. I hope the dialysis training is as good as the companies advertise on their websites!

    Should I try HD?

    I'm in NC. I see a lot of job openings for dialysis, both Davita and Fresenius. I'm getting my MSN in Leadership and Management. If I decide to try dialysis, hopefully there would be advancement opportunities within the company. Thanks for your response!
