  • Thinking Bigger

    As I follow legislative and policy issues I see a theme. I call it the ''I'll have what they are having!'' approach. In addition to working toward full practice authority, we put a great deal of effort into making sure that existing policy law is inclusive of advanced practice providers. We are making strides at the federal level toward securing ...

  • Establishing Your DNP Credibility

    Sometimes being the first of your kind is exciting, and sometimes it can be daunting and confusing. When I received my DNP I felt empowered, but I did not know where I would find my niche in an organization where there were no other doctoral-prepared NPs or PAs. My niche became a satellite clinic where I am the sole provider for health services to ...

  • Privacy and Confidentiality

    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 of my closest ''friends''. It's so very rewarding to watch a post collect ''likes'' and ...

  • The First of Your Kind

    What if you are the first of your kind?  We are all encouraged and excited to see an employer make the decision to hire their first NP or PA. The economy, coupled with the changes due to healthcare reform, has certainly worked to our advantage; this year we are seeing more and more jobs and seeing them in new and in different roles ...

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking - The Silver Lining of Nursing

    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.

  • NP Population Boom

    A report published this week in a public health journal predicts that by 2025, twice as many nurse practitioners will be in practice in the United States. This brings our numbers from 128,000 in 2008 up to a staggering 244,000 over the course of the next 12 years. Yes, you read that correctly, that is almost a quarter of a million NPs. I will ...
