  • Eat Your Young Or Teach Your Young?

    Last weekend I went to a fantastic pediatric conference and one of the talks was on preceptoring and how to be successful as a preceptor. During this talk they also gave a plethora of encouragement for NPs to become preceptors and asked those that had been preceptors to raise their hand...only about a quarter of the room raised their hand. This ...

  • Boards & A Second Interview

    I'm not sure how to describe my experience of taking national boards. Maybe I should just explain. This is by no means my endorsement of my methods. For one thing, I'd recommend more study time. I passed a predictor exam about a year ago. After passing my school's comps, I listened to review courses CDs as I drove, and spent some time in my ...

  • 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 ...

  • Q& A with Dr. Debra: More on Rashes

    When starting in dermatology, most people look for the dermatology books with pictures and treatment. However, some skip the step of understanding what is happening in the skin and the reason for the morphology seen. Once again, I will recommend the Principles of Dermatology by Lookingbill and Marks. It is helpful to get the principles of ...

  • Just Breathe

    I'm Fawn Workman and I am a brand new MSN graduate. I'm so new that I'm still waiting for a test date for my FNP boards! I'm glad you have come to read about my thoughts and musings on my first year as an NP. Since April, I have logged several thousand miles driving for clinical in another state while living with family members. I've also flown ...

  • 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 ...

  • Keeping Up with Being a DNP

    When I became a nurse practitioner, I was overwhelmed with the amount of information I had to retain from school. On top of that, keeping up with the most up-to-date research to support my clinical practice was hard, too. Now, as a Doctor of Nursing I am overtaken by the amount of research, policy updates, world news and continuing education I ...

  • Picking Your Battles

    Ladies and gentleman, I need a vacation. As term two of my NP journey comes to an end, I realize that I have spent way too much time on work and school. While I'm happy with my 4.0, my brain has that fuzzy, fried feeling. The kiddo is showing signs of neglect (or at least his laundry is).  Hubby is claiming he doesn't remember what a meal ...

  • 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 ...
