  • Unsightly Bra Fat: Kybella Injections Dissolve Fat Cells Non-Surgically

    Fat bulging around the bra, in the front, back or around the arm pits, can be fashionably limiting to many women. This contributes to multiple wardrobe changes and frustration prior to an event.  Lifestyle and genetics play a role in the way fat pockets are distributed in the body. Even people within their ideal weight have pockets of fat ...

  • Hair Loss Treatment Strategies for Men and Women

    Psychological observational studies have consistently revealed that it takes only a few seconds to form an impression of a stranger from their facial appearance. Within a few seconds, impressions of personality traits and age are made. Men and women with thinning hair or patterns of baldness are perceived to be older. Hair loss greatly impacts ...

  • Transtheoretical Model for Change

    As healthcare providers and patient advocates, we are often faced with convincing our charges that a change is needed. Human nature is to resist change. Most of us settle into familiar routines in our lives and jobs and, no matter how inefficient or unhealthy our routines may be, we are very reluctant to disrupt the flow of our conventions. It is ...

  • Beware: Social Media

    CAUTION! You could be one status update or tweet away from losing your job.  Now that I have your attention, I would like to remind everyone that what you choose to share on social media can have a negative impact on your employment. We live in an age where we are more connected than ever so you need to think carefully before you hit the ...

  • The Health of the Community

    ''Epidemiology'' and ''Health Indices of Urban Populations'': these are the names of the two courses I am taking this semester. At first, I thought, What does this have to do with being an DNP? I am learning that it has a lot to do with being a DNP. You need to know what is happening in the health of the community around you so that you can be ...

  • Keeping Up with Being a DNP

    When I became a nurse practitioner, I was overwhelmed with the amount of information I had to retain from school. On top of that, keeping up with the most up-to-date research to support my clinical practice was hard, too. Now, as a Doctor of Nursing I am overtaken by the amount of research, policy updates, world news and continuing education I ...

  • Picking Your Battles

    Ladies and gentleman, I need a vacation. As term two of my NP journey comes to an end, I realize that I have spent way too much time on work and school. While I'm happy with my 4.0, my brain has that fuzzy, fried feeling. The kiddo is showing signs of neglect (or at least his laundry is).  Hubby is claiming he doesn't remember what a meal ...

  • Policy and the DNP

    For many DNPs - and nurses in general - politics and policy making are important tasks best left to someone else. As clinical nurse leaders, however, who is better suited to shape help medical policy than the DNP? Nurses are already well placed in various government agencies and organizations, but the grass root effort is often lacking (Milstead, ...

  • 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 ...
