  • 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 ...

  • 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 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.

  • 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 ...

  • Ups and Downs of an Online Program

    A large and reputable healthcare organization in our community has recently added a footnote to all posted NP job openings, declaring they will no longer hire new grads from ''certain programs.'' The excluded programs are not named, but you will find a very short statement that refers to ''proprietary online'' schools this employer feels do not ...

  • Q& A with Dr. Debra: More on Rashes

    When starting in dermatology, most people look for the dermatology books with pictures and treatment. However, some skip the step of understanding what is happening in the skin and the reason for the morphology seen. Once again, I will recommend the Principles of Dermatology by Lookingbill and Marks. It is helpful to get the principles of ...

  • The Practical Doctorate in Other Health Disciplines

    Since I seem to have lost a host of readers last post in my discussion of what we can learn from history, I will proceed with... more lessons from history. Never fear, I expect the next couple posts will be about nurse entrepreneurship, which seems to garner more enthusiasm.  As philosopher George Santayana said, ''Those who cannot remember ...
