    I will be graduating in 4 weeks with my FNP.&nbsp; I was wondering from those of you practicing which programs and electronic devices you reccomend (i.e. Epocrates, Lexicomp, iPhone, iPad)?&nbsp; Do you use the free versions or do you purchase a package? &nbsp;Thanks Angela

  • Re: New grad dermatology position

    Hi Nancy &nbsp;Are you an NP or PA?&nbsp; Also could you clarify the first year salary information?&nbsp; Do you mean that your first year you will make 75,000.00?&nbsp; If so, that to me sounds pretty low, especially for a specialty practice.&nbsp; I make pretty much that in one year at my hospital as an RN in the float pool.&nbsp; I know that ...

  • Re: NP National certification

    Veronica Actually there are several states where you do not have to be certified to practice as an NP.&nbsp; The only thing is that these states do not allow NP's to prescribe unless they are certified.&nbsp; I only know this from a webinar by Fitzgerald that I listened to. Angela

  • Re: Physician Assistant Name Change

    Michelle As a very near NP graduate (December), I was unaware of the movement of PA's wanting to change their title.&nbsp; Why do they want to change? &nbsp;I think you would have to be careful with using the word associates.&nbsp; One of the definitions (adj) of associate is ''joined with another or others and having equal or nearly equal ...

  • Re: Your Best Weight Loss Advice

    Forget the word diet.&nbsp; You should think of it as making healthy lifestyle changes that you can maintain.&nbsp; The problem with all these fad diets are that they work when you stick to them, but most can't be maintained forever.&nbsp; As soon as you stop them, the weight quickly comes back on.&nbsp; Good luck on your article.
