  • Q & A with Dr. Debra: Now You Are Speaking My Language

    I always compare the ''language'' of dermatology to visiting a foreign country: if you don't speak the same language, you stand out to people as an outsider. It's the same with using the correct terms when practicing dermatology. Describing lesions and rashes has its own terminology. It is imperative to learn the language of dermatology if you ...

  • Beware: Social Media

    CAUTION! You could be one status update or tweet away from losing your job.  Now that I have your attention, I would like to remind everyone that what you choose to share on social media can have a negative impact on your employment. We live in an age where we are more connected than ever so you need to think carefully before you hit the ...

  • I'll Have What My Friend Had

    Just like one pair of jeans may fit someone perfectly, the chances of that same pair being right for the next person that walks through the door are, well, pretty much zero.  One of the most important factors in considering an aesthetic treatment is what it will do for your skin. The same treatment that helped a friend may or may not be the ...

  • Anterior and Posterior Axillary Fat Pad (Armpit Fat)

    Wardrobe frustrations and an endless search for the perfect bra, spanx or other compression material to conceal fat bulges around the bra go on. A particularly challenging fat bulge is the anterior and posterior axillary fat pad area (armpit fat). This fashion-limiting issue is something that many patients often demand a solution for. Injectable ...

  • 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 ...

  • Policy and the DNP

    For many DNPs - and nurses in general - politics and policy making are important tasks best left to someone else. As clinical nurse leaders, however, who is better suited to shape help medical policy than the DNP? Nurses are already well placed in various government agencies and organizations, but the grass root effort is often lacking (Milstead, ...

  • BSN to DNP

    BSN nurses are getting DNP degrees. What do you think about this? Personally, I am not happy about this fact. I have had my BSN since 1987 and my MSN since 1992. I don't think that a nurse who has had their BSN for only 5 years should be getting the same degree, a DNP, as I am getting when I complete this program. In trying to rationalize ...

  • "I Hate My Neck"

    Looking in the mirror at submental (under the chin) fat, loose, crepey, puckered skin and tight platysmal bands going down the neck can have a psychological impact. Loss of the definition of the jawline and neck can be from a genetic predisposition, weight gain or aging. It is generally considered aesthetically unappealing. Most seem to be aware ...

  • Dear "Supervising/Collaborating" Physician

    Dear ''Supervising/Collaborating'' Physician, Our relationship has to change.  It's not you, it's me. I have changed. I have grown and matured. I am not the same nurse practitioner I was when we first met. I have been around awhile now; I am no longer a new profession that is trying to find my role in the healthcare world. I have been ...

  • Q & A with Dr. Debra: NADNP

    Dear Dr. Shelby, My name is Ligita Centorino. I am a family nurse practitioner student in Phoenix, Arizona. I was researching NP national organizations and I was impressed to learn about your developed organization. I have chosen to promote your organization in my school, however, I have some additional questions I was not able to find answers on ...
