The time has come! I've passed boards, obtained my state license and I am scheduled to have ''temporary privileges'' at my facility next week! This is such an exciting time for my family and me! We've worked so hard for so many years and this is it.
The really amusing thing? I opened the mail a couple of weeks ago when my license came through ...
The real tragedy of getting a medical education is not the understanding of your own mortality or quantification of personal risk factors. It's not even the fact that friends and colleagues want you to look at something awful that is growing out of their body (I was sure that was a myth). It is the loss of good television.
An EMT friend of mine ...
Last month during the lull of winter break, I had a sudden
fear that I would not be able to find a job after graduation. I guess it was
because of the lull, no case studies to do, clinical hours completed for the
semester, and final grade deemed passing, that I had the time to contemplate a
life after school. This month, as my classes resume ...

I am sitting in a building erected in a decade when buildings were square and walls could never be thick enough. Brown ivy climbs a brick exterior white-washed so many times that it seems smooth. The old steel radiators chitter like a multitude of sparrows and my seat was built for someone with a smaller number of dietary choices. The nurse who ...
Yes! I proclaim with clinched fists, because I have passed
yet another class on my journey to become an FNP. I have only two classes left,
and though these two classes are intense, and will occur over the course of the
next year, I am beginning to glimpse the light at the end of this tunnel of
advanced nursing knowledge.
As much as I ...
Last week, NP & PA Student blogger Terry Clarke shared his concerns over the status of nursing. ''I am currently in a class called ‘Societal Forces' as a precursor to my first semester of advanced assessment in the Adult/Gero Primary Care Nurse Practitioner track. The teachers are passionate and well informed. The speakers are excellent, but ...
I am currently in a
class called ''Societal Forces'' as a precursor to my first semester of
advanced assessment in the Adult/Gero Primary Care Nurse Practitioner track.
The teachers are passionate and well informed. The speakers are excellent, but
the subject matter...The subject matter is frankly depressing. The class theme
seems to ...
Happy NP Week 2012! This year, we are recognizing nurse practitioners across the country with the AANP theme, ''Your Partner in Health.'' We'd love to know what your facility is doing to celebrate. Send your photos and stories of your festivities to email@example.com to be featured in our Comments & Feedback column online and in print. ...
''Suicide is so
frowned upon in this society, but honestly, life isn't for everybody. It's sad when kids kill themselves 'cause
they didn't really give it a chance, but life is like a movie: if you've sat
through more than half of it and it sucked every second so far, it probably
isn't gonna get great right at the very end for you and ...
