Now? I realize... Let's see... In my first three weeks, I've
Wow! What a year this has been and with each opportunity and
experience I have been able to share, I have the ADVANCE community to thank for helping me to grow and be a better
professional. I have met so many wonderful people who continue to offer support
and challenge me with my every day struggles as an NP working in corrections.

Dear Career Coach: I will
be graduating this May as a new nurse practitioner. I am concerned about the

employers and recruiters are saying about the resumes they have been receiving
from our professions.

startling number of ...
I was going to write a blog about neuro-syphilis because I just
recently treated a 29-year-old patient for this condition, however, on

with her care. That being said, neuro-syphilis is a tricky diagnosis; I advise clinicians
to read up on it.
Syphilis is commonly ...

I was recently speaking with a group of students who will be
graduating this year about their current clinical rotations and how things are
going. Many of the students had been at at least one of their clinical sites
since beginning their programs and were now feeling quite comfortable. Some students
even stated that a nurse or two had asked ...
