This Nurses Week, Examine Your Message
May 7, 2014 2:16 PM by Renee Dahring

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...
Physicians and Us
May 1, 2013 4:07 PM by Renee Dahring
I'm not a doctor basher. In fact I'm actually quite the contrary. Over the course of my career I have worked with some great docs. They have been encouraging, helpful and generally treated me as a peer. During my education I had physician preceptors and Read More...

April 17, 2013 1:17 PM by Renee Dahring
Dear Career Coach : I am wondering if you have any thoughts or advice about finding a job after age 60. I have been in practice for about 18 years. I am finding it rather scary to quit my job because I am worried about whether I will really be able to Read More...
Feedback Gone Wild?
October 3, 2012 11:57 AM by Renee Dahring

June 6, 2012 12:30 PM by Renee Dahring
Dear Career Coach : I found your article on applicant tracking systems very interesting. I was wondering, how would I know if an organization is using such a system? Do you think solo practices are using these systems? Dear Job Seeker : A couple of clues Read More...
Middle of What?
May 31, 2012 7:43 AM by Renee Dahring
Every so often I feel like I need to go on a good rant. Most of the time I can contain myself, but about once a year I feel the need to get certain pet peeves out of my system. Not a week goes by that I don't get a call from either a recruiter or a healthcare Read More...
