  • Reviewing Rosacea

    By Darrel Arthurs, ARNP, DCNP  Rosacea is a very common disorder that affects the skin of the face with flares that wax and wane in severity. The condition can be mild, with only a light pink color on the cheeks and nose, or very severe and deep red. Very severe cases may have papules, pustules and broken blood vessels ...

  • 3 Tips to Build the Perfect Résumé

    Have you ever wondered what qualities make a résumé great versus good enough? Submitting a ''good'' résumé is a gamble; you hope maybe it will be noticed while risking the chance it will be overlooked. Most job seekers would like a bit better odds than ''maybe.'' The difference is that good résumés seek attention while great résumés demand the ...

  • DNPs Giving Back

    As 2016 draws to a close and I finish evaluating my students' progress in each of the DNP Essentials, I have been thinking about how to continue pushing myself also. For me, completing the DNP degree was a transformative experience. I started the DNP program with a goal of earning a doctorate so I could teach in a graduate program. I finished the ...

  • Negotiating the Employment Contract

    Negotiating an employment contract doesn't have to be a battle. If you feel as if you are about to engage in an adversarial process, then you are approaching it all wrong. Employment contracts shouldn't be viewed from a perspective that leads to a winner and a loser. In fact, the hallmark of a successful negotiation is that neither party will ...

  • Social Media: A Job Hunting Wildcard

    You might be surprised what impressions an employer may form about you just by looking at your social media postings. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that your employer (or potential employer) is even looking at your online postings at all.   Checking social media has become a fairly routine part of the hiring ...

  • Enjoying Your NP School Years

    NP students frequently ask me if there is anything they can do before graduation to help prepare for their first job. I assume they are looking for the usual ''job-search advice,'' because they seem somewhat surprised when I tell them what they are doing now—in school—is the best preparation. I don't actively encourage students to start job ...

  • The Power of the Résumé

    A potential employer is the only audience your résumé needs to impress. Not your instructors, not your colleagues, and not your mother. If your résumé doesn't pass this test, it has not been written properly, and improperly written résumés don't get interviews. No interview = no job. Poorly written résumés generally share a few key ...

  • The Evolution of the Job Search

    Job searching has evolved. Where we go to find a new job is not the same as it was even a year ago. It's tough to keep up with the trends. If you haven't changed jobs for several years, you're going to find out that the strategy you used to find your last job is no longer effective. If you are a new grad who is beginning the search for your first ...

  • The DNP Essentials

    At the start of this school year, I am contemplating the DNP Essentials. As a DNP, how are you using the knowledge and skills acquired through your DNP coursework to impact healthcare outcomes? When was the last time you read the DNP Essentials and thought about how the DNP Essentials can provide a framework for your professional growth and ...

  • How to Find the Right Job for You

    No one wants their dream job to turn into a nightmare. My recruiting days were spent listening to NPs who were frustrated and wanted out of their current position. Salary and benefits weren't the problem; the problem was literally the workplace itself. They told me stories of toxic workplace cultures, horrendous work expectations and miserable ...
