December 19, 2016 11:15 AM by Renee Dahring

Re-evaluating the ‘Dream Job’
August 8, 2016 8:55 AM by Renee Dahring
What's the first thing that comes in to your mind when I say the words "dream job?" I would venture to say your initial thoughts will go in the direction of pay, hours or perhaps location. If I gave you a few minutes more to ponder, you would likely add Read More...

Interview Questions
December 11, 2014 3:31 PM by Renee Dahring

Non-traditional or New Practices
September 19, 2014 2:01 PM by Renee Dahring
Proceed carefully when considering a position with a new clinic or practice that is not yet open or established, especially if the clinic is embarking on a "non-traditional" or "new healthcare model." Jobs like these can turn out to be the best thing Read More...

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...
