This book is designed to assist Nurse Practitioner (NP) students and newly certified NPs alike, serving as a quick, easy-to-use manual that concisely explains everything NPs need to know for practice and transitioning into practice. The book guides the reader through all aspects of the process of becoming a new nurse practitioner, starting with the decision to become an NP to selecting educational programs and obtaining licensure. Other topics include searching for a mentor, surviving the first year of practice, and understanding legal issues. This is the all-in-one reference for potential or current NP students and newly practicing NPs. Its chapters contain learning objectives, check lists to facilitate important decision making, charts/tables with "hot topics" or key elements, and testimonials from currently practicing NPs, as well as the author's own poignant moments as a new and experienced NP that will be helpful to any new or soon to be new practitioner.
