  • Celebrating NP Week!

    Nurse Practitioner Week is November 9-15, 2014 and as of 2014, there are more than 192,000 NPs in the US. That's up from 140,000 in 2010 - a huge jump that is expected to rise to 244,000 by 2025! Since I first entered my master's NP program, I have been involved with my local chapter of the Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners. I have had so ...

  • Letting Go and Moving On

    Well I have told you about everything that I have gone through at the place where I work. I've been battling for recognition and respect, but when it came down to it I realized it was happiness that I wanted - a place where I could enjoy my profession and the patients I serve without any drama. Sadly, after many hard fought battle, this was not ...

  • Establishing Your DNP Credibility

    Sometimes being the first of your kind is exciting, and sometimes it can be daunting and confusing. When I received my DNP I felt empowered, but I did not know where I would find my niche in an organization where there were no other doctoral-prepared NPs or PAs. My niche became a satellite clinic where I am the sole provider for health services to ...

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking – Convenient Care, Acute Care, Career Uncertainty

    Last week, retail clinics were a hot topic. On Twitter, we retweeted an article from @Health_Affairs: ''New Web First online now. Retail Clinic Use Growing Rapidly http://tinyurl.com/9e4jh9y  (Free access for two weeks).'' The article highlights the benefits of convenient care, such as longer hours. However, our article The Forked Tongue of ...

  • Double Duty

    I have admittedly been remiss in submitting blogs in a timely manner and actually have a deadline of 5 pm today! Me, Miss OCD! How could this happen? Well, for one, work days are so busy sometimes that I barely have time to breathe -- average patient seen 25 to 30, from STD exams to primary care. And since I decided to take full advantage of ...

  • 24 Hours on Call

    I have mentioned in many blogs how much I love being a nurse practitioner. I have enjoyed the opportunities I have been afforded by associating with so many wonderful professionals and they have paved the way for me. THANK YOU! The opportunity I am referring to is my role as an independent contractor for a gerontology group. One year ago I ...

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking – July 9, 2012

    In the past week, we shared the news that the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American College of Nurse Practitioners plan to merge. With 28 Facebook ''likes'' and many ''shares,'' it seems NPs support the decision. On our blog post readers are responding with positive comments, too. Cathy said, ''It's about time. This was so ...

  • The Little Clinic That Could

    Life has really settled down a little over 5 months into my job at the Martin County Health Department and my little satellite clinic in Oak City. As mentioned in previous posts, the Oak City Clinic was renovated from a little firehouse by a $56,000 grant from the GoldenLeaf Foundation. There was little money for necessary accoutrements so ...

  • Success as a New NP

    Here I sit in my newly decorated office, a bit after 4PM, pondering my good fortune!  It has been a little over a month since I've gone ''solo'' and things couldn't be better. It feels as if I've been here forever, with everyone here feeling like old friends. The ease with which I settled into my new position is still a little ...
