  • Summer Quandary

    After waking up from my nap, (yeah, I know, a nap!) I started thinking about going back to school next month. I have been spoiled this summer - even though I am working, I feel like I am on vacation. This summer followed the most difficult semester that I have ever been through. This past semester I took Pharmacology and Physical Assessment with a ...

  • The Delicate Balancing Act

    Currently, as I try to write this blog post, I have a Chihuahua under my feet and a 7-year-old leaning against my arm. One term into my journey to become a nurse practitioner and I’ve already had moments thinking, What did I get myself into? and, What was I thinking? Balance is not easy. Coffee has become my best friend. But a balance for ...

  • Why Didn't You Just Become a Doctor?

    After becoming a nurse practitioner and then deciding to obtain my doctor of nursing practice, I have been asked this question many times by patients, friends, family members, and even strangers.

  • Diversity Impact 2014

    I recently had the opportunity to return to Hyden, Kentucky for their Diversity Impact weekend. This is the second time I have had the privilege to attend and was even more excited to be there as an alumni of Frontier Nursing University.

  • The Way Healthcare Used to Be

    I find myself thinking quite a bit about how much healthcare has changed since I was young and trying to figure out how it is that we have come to find ourselves in our current situation. I just want to state, for the record, that I am not that old. I was a kid in the 60s and I had my children during the 70s and early 80s. I am not talking ...

  • Study Strategies

    I'm always looking for a better mousetrap (I won't say a better way ''to skin a cat'' since I am a cat lover who had to endure dissecting cats in an undergrad anatomy class). So the better mousetrap I'm looking for is the most efficient study strategy for the vast amounts of knowledge that I must somehow accomplish to be a PA. And since I ...
