Let me help you go from
commencement to contract
My online program, Dream Job Roadmap for New NPs was specifically designed to guide you along this journey.
Learn more about the details of this program below – I invite you to get on the waitlist so you can be the first to know when it opens again for enrollment (late summer 2020).
Learn every single step you need to take, from commencement to contract, to land your dream job as a nurse practitioner.
Grad school was hard enough!
One of the most surprisingly difficult aspects of becoming a nurse practitioner isn’t the grueling process of school itself, but the job search!
Skip the demoralizing experience of applying to jobs and never hearing back (or hearing back just to be overwhelmed by contract negotiations) and create a plan that gets you from boards to on-boarding without all the stress.
When I graduated from NP school, I was so excited to start my career. Sure, I was nervous, but I was filled with so much passion – not to mention the pride I felt in my own accomplishment of actually making it through my program!
I felt prepared by my program for graduation and my board exam.
But when it came to my job search, interviewing, and negotiating my first contract… I kind of felt like I was putting together a piece of Ikea furniture (you know, the kind that comes in multiple boxes – you’re not sure where to start or whether you’re actually doing the steps correctly).
I thought if I had the perfect résumé and just sent it off to the job openings in my area, I was sure to find something that was a good fit.
Many of my classmates thought the same thing, and most of us wound up in a job we did not enjoy and moved on to the next thing in under a year.
So, the next few times I changed jobs, I tried something different.
I turned the traditional process on its head and reverse engineered my job search and something amazing happened.
I found myself with the best problem – multiple job offers for positions that sparked that excitement in my soul that originally led me to choosing this profession!
While I continued to have success and ease with this new approach, I heard other NPs around me continue to struggle:
“It’s so frustrating to apply and hear nothing back.”
“My area is so oversaturated with NPs.”
“These jobs only want NPs with years of experience…how am I supposed to get experience if no one will hire me?”
At first I felt guilty for not facing these same struggles.
But then I realized that I wasn’t “special” – I had just found a better way to do things.
And now I get to teach you the exact process that I (and other NPs I’ve mentored) have used to find a Great position and negotiate for what you’re worth.

Hi! I’m Amanda
I’m an emergency medicine nurse practitioner in a Level I trauma center.
With 8 years of experience, over 200 custom resume and career counseling clients, and more than 2000 resume templates sold, I can confidently say that I know better than most what the job-search process is like for new NPs.
Honestly? It kinda sucks to figure it all out on your own.
No more worries about what happens after graduation.
I lay it all out for you in this course. This isn’t some generic job search course; this roadmap is specifically for new nurse practitioners. I teach what to do every step of the way: boards, credentials, job searches, resumes, cover letters, interviews, contracts, negotiations— if it’s a part of the job-hunt process then I’ll tell you when, where, and how to do it.
Direction, support, community.
This is a fully-supported course that includes:
“Hi Amanda, good news! They accepted my counter AND upped my signing bonus! Thank you so much for all your help and your advice. I really appreciate all your insights as you have been an invaluable source for someone entering this new world of advanced practice nursing!”
“I ended up getting a great position from cold emailing my resume to an HR department of a hospital. They said when they post peds positions they get 50 plus applicants in 24 hours. From reaching out I was able to go through the entire process without them posting the position – obviously an advantage.”

FAQs about this course
I’m so busy! Between working, clinicals, graduation, and my board exam looming...when am I going to fit this in?
What if I’m not a brand new nurse practitioner? Will this program help me if I've been looking for a year already?
YES! I designed this program with the new grad in mind, because this is usually the first time they are navigating the NP job search process.
However, if you are in a job that does not light you up, or you recently lost your job due to the numerous layoffs happening in our profession (thanks, COVID-19), the process that I teach is how you can find the right job for you and go after it confidently.
I don’t want any nurse practitioners in a situation where they’ve been unemployed so long that they continue going back to work as an RN. That is not what you became an NP to do.
Can I afford this?
If you were to land a $100k/year job, your weekly pay is equal to just under $2000. If you use the strategies outlined in this program to get a position just a week sooner than if you did so on your own, you just earned back TEN TIMES the investment of this course.
Couldn’t I just hire a resume writer?
Sure! And if you’d like to hire me to write your résumé, you can do so here. However, as you’ll learn in the program, your résumé is just a SMALL piece of process and strategy for finding your dream NP job.
Isn’t getting an NP job as simple as sending my résumé to as many places as possible and hoping to get a call back?
I wish. But not really. I don’t want you to just find any job. All NP jobs are not created equal, and I am committed to helping you find a position that’s aligned with your professional and personal goals.
