  • How to Find the Right Job for You

    No one wants their dream job to turn into a nightmare. My recruiting days were spent listening to NPs who were frustrated and wanted out of their current position. Salary and benefits weren't the problem; the problem was literally the workplace itself. They told me stories of toxic workplace cultures, horrendous work expectations and miserable ...

  • Interview Questions

    I've conducted many interviews over the years and can tell you that nothing sinks an otherwise successful interview faster than the candidate who asks no questions. Many candidates seem to feel it is acceptable when asked if they have questions to answer with ''no, I think you answered them all''. Really? You want to commit to spending most of ...

  • Recording Dates

    Time flies and memory fades. Remember that Seinfeld episode where the character lost one old piece of information in order to make room for every new piece of information learned? At least I think it was Seinfeld, I can't remember for sure... I'm sure you have all had the experience of filling out a job application and found yourself struggling ...

  • 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 ...

  • NPs as PCPs

    Since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) first made headlines, a frequent topic in the media has been the shortage of primary care providers (PCPs) to accommodate the influx of newly insured patients. At the time of its implementation, it was estimated that there would be a shortfall of 45,000 to 60,000 PCPs to provide care for the millions of newly ...

  • 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 ...

  • Job Hunt Pointers

    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 ...

  • How to Incorporate Student Experience

    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 ...
