The deadline for this blog snuck up on me. The last two weeks of my personal life have been very, very busy, and Christmas is just around the corner.
Since my last blog posting, I have found out that I was not accepted for the second fellowship position, either. This was very disappointing to me, as I felt the interview went well and I was a good ...

amount of new procedures that I was being ...

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

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

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 ...

I am seeking the help of my online
community. Several blogs ago I had
mentioned the desire to start my own business, but was unsure what I actually
wanted to do, so I purchased the book, ''How to Start an Independent Practice''
by Carolyn R. Zaumeyer. This book was filled with a step by step approach to
all the tools one will need to start a ...
For those of you who are waiting to take the boards and plan
to practice in North Carolina, my home state, there is still a fairly long and
winding road ahead of you to NP officialdom. There's not much room for preplanning
since everything must happen in sequence and it takes a good month between
passing the board and receiving the DEA ...
Due to a few personal issues, I got started a bit late on studying for the boards. In the meantime, four of my classmates have passed — one will be headed to Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska; another will start her job in South Carolina; a particularly adventurous one has accepted an offer from a MinuteClinic (!). The fourth classmate is having a ...
