I was before, but now I am an even greater advocate of the
pill box. Every patient with a lackluster memory, or taking multiple
medications, or time sensitive medications should own one. There is nothing
better than a physical reminder to keep a body on track.
I was recently confronted with an HIV positive patient on a
cocktail of ...
True friendship is a tremendous
responsibility, a responsibility that I do not take lightly. My best friend has
wanted to return to school for many years to pursue her master's in education,
but due to life (married with children, work, financial) she postponed it until
now. She states she has never been a good writer and looked to me for ...
Lately it seems a rash (no pun intended) of patients have
asked me how it was that they contracted their Staph infections. Some had MRSA,
others MSSA. Some suffered from bacteremia, others osteomyelitis, and others
still were challenged by skin/soft tissue infections in the form of painful and
unsightly abscesses. Some had recently undergone ...
''America has spoken'' says Nick
Cannon from America's Got Talent and the winner is: The American People! This
is the feeling of many when the Supreme Court ruled that the Patient Protection
and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is constitutional. Are the American people

or heard about HBO's four-part documentary on obesity in America, The Weight of the Nation, but I can't
recommend it enough: it is an awesome and totally relevant examination of
health in the States.
So many of the individuals profiled in this series were reminiscent of ...
In our recent Opinions & Essays article ''PAs:
The Need Is Great, the Time Is Now,'' author Sharon Bahrych, PA-C, MPH,
responded to reader Tina's concerns about choosing the correct career path. ''Yes,
you are definitely not alone in your feelings at this stage of your career. Try
to find a local NP group that meets once a month for CME, ...
Q: I am just finishing my BSN and will graduate in December 2012. I have a BSBA, ADN, LPN-Diploma and associate degree in general education. I am now considering doing the FNP program but I will be in the middle of the program when the DNP is required to set for the boards in 2015. I work full-time, I have a family that depends on my income, and ...
Costs for healthcare are rising. There is not a revelation in
this statement, but as providers, we have to be mindful of the dollars we use
because it affects raises. My former mentor would drive that home for me. When
I would order a test, she would ask, ''Will that test change your treatment
plan?'' And if I responded with ''no'' then she ...
