Clinicals are a huge part of NP school, but they can be very overwhelming in the beginning! I’ve compiled my top 10 tips for how to succeed and stand out at Clinical when you are in school to become a Nurse Practitioner in order to ease some of that stress. I recently graduated from a Family Nurse Practitioner Program and utilized all of these tips in order to get the most out of my clinical experiences while in school.
Sallie Mae came to get me this week! Goodbye to loan deferment. This week we focus on the student loans that Joe and I have racked up over the years. I’ll talk about my student loans from NP school, nursing school loans, and what Joe’s loans are from. I’ll also discuss what our biggest regrets are in terms of loans, our education, and what we wish we had done differently! I’ll also discuss what we are thinking of doing to payback my Nurse Practitioner school and Nursing school loans, while still having a life. So if you’ve ever been curious about just how much debt I’m swimming in? This ones for you!
If you’ve been to a Doctors office lately, I’m sure you noticed that you were spending quite a long time sitting in the waiting room and even the exam room, before you got your 10 minutes with the provider.

If you’ve ever wondered WHY the wait is getting so out of hand, this video is a demonstration of just how quickly appointment times can be delayed. We will follow Ella and Mr Pilot through their appointments with a Nurse Practitioner, in order to see in real time, what is going on in primary care offices, causing them to become so behind.
