The deadline for this blog snuck up on me. The last two weeks of my personal life have been very, very busy, and Christmas is just around the corner.
Since my last blog posting, I have found out that I was not accepted for the second fellowship position, either. This was very disappointing to me, as I felt the interview went well and I was a good ...
I'm not sure how to describe my experience of taking national boards. Maybe I should just explain. This is by no means my endorsement of my methods. For one thing, I'd recommend more study time.
I passed a predictor exam about a year ago. After passing my school's comps, I listened to review courses CDs as I drove, and spent some time in my ...
I'm Fawn Workman and I am a brand new MSN graduate. I'm so new that I'm still waiting for a test date for my FNP boards! I'm glad you have come to read about my thoughts and musings on my first year as an NP.

The last few weeks have been a harsh lesson in patience and
letting go. I am the type of person who likes to be in charge of my own fate
and like to have clear deadlines and goals. While applying for the various
licenses and staff privileges that are necessary in order for me to start work,
I have also needed a lesson in how to trust the ...
All required packets have been submitted to their respective
entities. My immune system has been prepped with a TDAP booster, influenza vaccine
and PPD administration. Drug screen was completed and now I have to do what I
do not do best: wait.
To keep my mind busy I have been cranking out the hours in
the ER as an RN and have also been ...
Greetings from the happiest place on earth: Disney World.
When I planned this trip months ago it was meant to be a celebration trip and
thank you to my family for sticking through the last 2 years of NP school.
In my mind I would have passed my school's comprehensive exam and the national
boards. Just a few weeks ago I panicked, again ...
As I sit here to compose my first blog post as a new
graduate, I am feeling a bit bittersweet. The last two years have been long,
adventurous, overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. Now it is time to
regroup and make my post-graduation plans.
This past weekend I attended a board review class and as I
sat there, I realized that ...
The time has come! I've passed boards, obtained my state license and I am scheduled to have ''temporary privileges'' at my facility next week! This is such an exciting time for my family and me! We've worked so hard for so many years and this is it.
The really amusing thing? I opened the mail a couple of weeks ago when my license came through ...
I really felt prepared. I had done a review course by a company that claims a
pass rate of 99%. I had also studied a very well-known study guide, in addition
to listening to 2 sets of CDs (one of them for the last year!). I then took 2
''predictor'' examinations with decent scores that were predictive of me passing
morning was ...
