As the holidays fast approach and the year is quickly coming
to a close, it seems natural to look back at times. Although looking back at
times can help you see how far you came over the past year, it can distract you

Often we become overwhelmed at what we have not gotten
completed. As 2013 comes to an ...
The last few weeks have been a harsh lesson in patience and
letting go. I am the type of person who likes to be in charge of my own fate
and like to have clear deadlines and goals. While applying for the various
licenses and staff privileges that are necessary in order for me to start work,
I have also needed a lesson in how to trust the ...
All required packets have been submitted to their respective
entities. My immune system has been prepped with a TDAP booster, influenza vaccine
and PPD administration. Drug screen was completed and now I have to do what I

As the end of this
semester was clearly in sight, I was feeling really good about the grades I had
and the pace of approaching the finish line. Then out of left field, life

Often, as students, we
get so involved in deadlines for assignments, studying for tests and getting
things organized into our schedules ...
As the week starts, it

is bringing my end to sight. In the beginning of this semester, I was feeling
down for not
passing a class. But, as it progresses it is clear that the second time
around I am gaining new insight of the content.
Over the past weeks,
This month, thousands of PA and NP students are just getting
started on their journey. Most PA programs begin in June or August and many
students are gearing up for the craziest two years of their career thus far. I
am 2 years in and graduate in December and August is a great time to reflect on
what I've learned so far and what I tell ...
Hello to everyone, and I hope you enjoy this ride along with
me as I continue into my second year of classes. Monday, July 8th marked the
beginning of the second year of nurse practitioner classes for me at Frontier
Each term I completed has been faced with a lot of
anticipation; however, this one is slightly different. Last term, ...
