There are not many things that frustrate me in my clinical practice. Most patients are open, receptive and leave shaking their heads in agreement to your plan of care. What happens once they leave your office is often unknown. You hope that they venture directly to the pharmacy, take their medications as prescribed and their health improves. ...
If you are about to look for your first job or you are just thinking about making a change, I have a couple pointers for you:
Job searching requires a plan. Before you send out your first resume or application, you should have an idea of what it is you really want in a job. Sit down and make a list of YOUR job requirements. If there is one ...
As a new practitioner there is always that ''second guessing yourself complex'' that hovers over you like a black cloud. One benefit that I have had is that I have 6 years or ER nursing experience behind me. It allows me to have that gut feeling that tells you something is not quite right. This feeler system has definitely followed me into urgent ...
Dear Career Coach:
I am an experienced PA
and was reading your resume tips for NPs. However, I'm wondering about your
guidance on listing clinical rotations. You mentioned listing clinical rotations
is only a good idea if you are a new grad NP. Do you think the same applies for
PAs who have completed rotations in surgery and other ...
''Thank you'' is one phrase that can change the outlook of your day. Last week while at work the office manager came up to my co practitioner and me. In her hands she held a letter from a patient, thanking the office for the great care that she received. The office manager eagerly asked us to see who saw her and I was surprised to find out that it ...
I sat in the airport terminal in
November of 2012 and stared at my cell phone. I flicked the screen on and off as
I waited out another wave of anxiety. I was about to place a call that would
dictate the course of my life. At the time, I could barely comprehend the
changes that would take place over the next year.
It would be the year that ...
Throughout life we build our own individual skill sets.
Often times we are our own guinea pig and learn from our own mistakes. Often
times however, if we build skill sets based on our careers these trial and
errors often affect others.
During nursing school I remember being overwhelmed by the
amount of new procedures that I was being ...
While I await my boards I have been compiling all of the
necessary papers that are needed for purposes of licensing. With this also
comes making a list of all of the fees that come with this. Although I will be
receiving CME funds at the beginning of the year, my initial applications will
all come out of pocket for me. Ready for the ...
Time, because of its duplicitous intangibility and
quantifiable nature is, to me, a perennially elusive phenomenon. You can
measure it but you can't hold it and yet it dictates the rhythms of life. While
I reflect on these ephemeral characteristics, the advent of 2013 ushers forth
the commencement of my second year as a Nurse Practitioner.
Every day is an adventure at the correctional facility and
at times it is not from the inmates. Oftentimes, it is from the person I like to call
''The Lovely Doctor.'' I do not know why I call him that, but maybe it is because
it is the nicest name I can call him...yes! It is sarcasm at its finest.
One of the perks that has been rescinded ...
