Thinking Bigger
June 1, 2016 8:21 AM by Renee Dahring
As I follow legislative and policy issues I see a theme. I call it the "I'll have what they are having!" approach. In addition to working toward full practice authority, we put a great deal of effort into making sure that existing policy law is inclusive Read More...

Dear "Supervising/Collaborating" Physician
September 3, 2014 1:07 PM by Renee Dahring
Dear "Supervising/Collaborating" Physician, Our relationship has to change. It's not you, it's me. I have changed. I have grown and matured. I am not the same nurse practitioner I was when we first met. I have been around awhile now; I am no longer a Read More...

NPs: Continue to Educate and Demand Respect
June 18, 2014 9:35 AM by Renee Dahring
A funny thing happened on the way to full practice authority... We have been working hard for years on passage of a bill to update the nurse practice act and free APRNs of outdated and restrictive practice agreements. In fact we have been focused for Read More...

This Nurses Week, Examine Your Message
May 7, 2014 2:16 PM by Renee Dahring
For as long as I can remember, nursing has been one of the most trusted professions. We should be very proud of that status -- it's not easy to gain the trust of the public, much less mange to hold on to that trust year after year. We have never campaigned Read More...

The Way Healthcare Used to Be
April 2, 2014 5:01 PM by Renee Dahring
I find myself thinking quite a bit about how much healthcare has changed since I was young and trying to figure out how it is that we have come to find ourselves in our current situation. I just want to state, for the record, that I am not that old. I Read More...

The Providers of ‘No'
March 6, 2014 8:36 AM by Renee Dahring
Ready for my rant? Over the past year or two, I've noticed an increase in physician groups engaging in negative campaigning directed toward NPs. Could it have always been present but I just hadn't noticed? Or is the negativity a reaction to the numerous Read More...

Privacy and Confidentiality
October 16, 2013 3:16 PM by Renee Dahring
I don't know about you, but there isn't a day that goes by when I don't have some sort of umm.... interesting experience at work. I understand how awfully tempting it is to jump on Facebook or Twitter and share the events of my day with all 100+ or so Read More...

Time to Get Involved
September 4, 2013 4:19 PM by Renee Dahring
Now that Labor Day has come and gone, it's officially the end of summer. Fall is a good time to get back to all those projects we put on hold. Which means this is a good time for my "get involved" speech. This past year has seen a great deal of political Read More...

The First of Your Kind
July 3, 2013 3:25 PM by Renee Dahring
What if you are the first of your kind? We are all encouraged and excited to see an employer make the decision to hire their first NP or PA. The economy, coupled with the changes due to healthcare reform, has certainly worked to our advantage; this year Read More...

Healthcare's Role in Politics
June 19, 2013 11:09 AM by Renee Dahring
This week I am going to turn the tables and ask you a question. Should we, and by "we" I mean the collective "we" such as our NP and PA organizations, take a stance on political issues? More people are paying attention to what we say. We are in the news Read More...

NP Population Boom
July 5, 2012 1:21 PM by Renee Dahring
A report published this week in a public health journal predicts that by 2025, twice as many nurse practitioners will be in practice in the United States. This brings our numbers from 128,000 in 2008 up to a staggering 244,000 over the course of the next Read More...

What Does 'Nurse Practitioner' Mean?
March 10, 2011 11:28 AM by Renee Dahring
In states across the country, nurse practitioners are introducing legislation to remove “barriers to practice.” As NPs we all agree this is a great idea, but like any political endeavor its success or failure will depend on our ability to convince others Read More...
