  • 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 ...

  • Just Breathe

    I'm Fawn Workman and I am a brand new MSN graduate. I'm so new that I'm still waiting for a test date for my FNP boards! I'm glad you have come to read about my thoughts and musings on my first year as an NP. Since April, I have logged several thousand miles driving for clinical in another state while living with family members. I've also flown ...

  • 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 ...

  • BSN to DNP

    BSN nurses are getting DNP degrees. What do you think about this? Personally, I am not happy about this fact. I have had my BSN since 1987 and my MSN since 1992. I don't think that a nurse who has had their BSN for only 5 years should be getting the same degree, a DNP, as I am getting when I complete this program. In trying to rationalize ...

  • Precept to Perm

    I'm seeing a new trend taking hold - it's called ''precept to perm.'' It is hardly a new idea, but it has been given an official name, causing it to trend and become more common. If you are a student, you might have already encountered this phenomenon. If you are a seasoned clinician looking for a new position, it could impact your job search, as ...

  • To Be Or Not To Be... Autonomous

    I'm sitting here at work, trying to figure out what to write about today. As I ruminate, I realize what a great team of people I work with every day and this reminds me of an assignment I recently completed for class. The question proposed for class was, ''Do physicians work autonomously?'' As I wrote the assignment it made me think about nurse ...

  • DNP Programs: Are They All the Same?

    In 2004, the American Association of the Colleges of Nursing (AACN) proposed that the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) should be the entry level for Advanced Practice Nurses (APN). A year later, the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) announced that the only doctoral practice degree that the CCNE would accredit would be the DNP ...

    The American Association of Colleges of Nursing published the ''The Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing'' in 2006. There are eight essentials outlining the required competencies of a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) graduate. The second essential pertains to leadership and emphasizes the DNP's ability to facilitate ...

  • When the Nurse Wants to be Called Doctor

    Getting my DNP was challenging, but, unfortunately, my employer was not as supportive as I had hoped of my hard-earned achievement. When I received my doctorate I intended to introduce myself as Dr. Cash to patients and wanted staff to address me as such, as well. I found out this would be harder than I thought. The organization I work for is ...
