Hello everyone, I am an FNP student. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am looking to see descriptions of specific situations at different points in your practice. 

1. What was a challenge when you were fresh out of school and started as an APRN?

2. How did you feel your role as an APRN developed after 6 months? After 1 year?

Your responses would be greatly appreciated

Hi there-

 

1. I would say my biggest challenge was confidence. Still is. No matter what specialty you go into you will always be questioning yourself in the beginning. And this is a good thing, right? You don't want to think you know everything, because you don't.

 

2. At 6 month I was just hanging on for the ride! At one year, I felt competent enough but very green still. I think that's normal. It takes year (s) to feel comfortable in a new role.

 

Good Luck!
