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.

Don't take another step - before you have your patient read and sign all consent forms! A patient's written consent and acknowledgement of the treatment and risks is simply not optional anymore. Sure, there was a time when a provider's word was gold. There was little written in a chart about the discussion of risks and side effects. Nowadays, ...
What do our patients want?
To look better, look more youthful
Look better without down time
Look better right away
Look better without pain
Look better without surgery
Look better without costing too much
So how do we help them accomplish all of this? First, we have to understand what comprises a youthful appearance. Young, youthful skin ...
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''

We commonly associate them with pregnancy, but striae also frequently occur in young patients after rapid height or muscle mass increase. Typical areas of involvement include the abdomen, breasts, arms, ...
Collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a procedure that triggers the body's natural healing process to create firmer, plumper, more youthful skin with a healthy glow. It does this by creating ''microwounds'' using a microneedling device. The procedure triggers a diffuse wound healing process.
In CIT, microneedles puncture the skin and activate stem ...
I attended the second annual Aesthetic Extender Symposium last weekend, and days later I am left with some distinct and positive impressions about much more than the aesthetics industry.
First, some background. The symposium was cofounded by Krystie P. Lennox, a physician assistant, and David J. Goldberg, a dermatologist who is also a healthcare ...
Seventeen months ago when I opened Pace Clinic I was excited to be out on my own. No more working for somebody, I could set my own hours, come and go as I please, and do my own thing. I have thoroughly enjoyed working for myself.
However, even though I no longer have (a) boss, I still work for now thousands of bosses (my clients). Sure, I can ...
This past week I had the pleasure of spending the day lecturing for one of the FNP programs in town. The experience was not a new one for me, but it was different in that I was ''it'' for the whole class day. I enjoyed myself very much, and my feedback has been positive to date. As I prepared for this posting I thought about this experience and ...
