Or at least listen to all of the podcasts...or maybe just study? Either way I bombed my first CC test. I got a 73, which I guess is better than a 53 but it's still failing in our program. But fortunately it's nothing that I can't come back from, so I'm not too terribly bummed about it.
Had my 2nd peds clinical, LOVED it! I mean seriously, I just can't explain how much I love pediatrics. After I get out of nursing school I don't ever, ever, EVER want to take care of an adult again. I seriously don't. And while I would love to get my PNP, the only program around here is at Vanderbilt, which although Vandy is an AWESOME school and very prestigous, it also comes with an AWESOME & prestigous price tag as well. I wish there was an online course that was doable but I haven't really found any. I found one in Alabama at USA but it's double the time of the one at Vanderbilt and you have to have 2 years of floor experience first. BUT the good news is that I have questioned many of the NP's I "know" & they have all said that it's possible for me to narrow my scope of practice as a FNP. So, that's great news! I've always leaned towards FNP just because it's a broader scope, but now that I want to narrow that scope I was a little worried, but it looks like that's going to be ok. So I guess I won't have to go to Vandy after all, we'll see. I think I'm going to stick with applying to the school I currently attend & the one other school that I have had my eye on from the beginning & just go from there. Also, the good thing about both of those is that with my GPA I don't have to take the GRE, yay!!
Anyway, I have more to talk about, but I need to get a "reflection" done for class & look up some articles to go with it, so I will pop back on here later.
Hope everyone is having a great week! I'm looking forward to the weekend!!
