  • This is what a DNP does: Change Practice

    Work calls attended to. Check. Three-and-a-half-year-old down for his nap. Check. Casserole in the oven for dinner. Check. Let's see... oh yes, time for blogging. I'm new to blogging, but not quite as new at being a DNP. Back in 2003 when I investigated universities with an interest in pursuing my practice doctorate, there were very few in the ...

Retail Clinic Use Growing Rapidly http://tinyurl.com/9e4jh9y  (Free access for two weeks).'' The article highlights the benefits of convenient care, such as longer hours. However, our article The Forked Tongue of ...

  • Double Duty

    I have admittedly been remiss in submitting blogs in a timely manner and actually have a deadline of 5 pm today! Me, Miss OCD! How could this happen? Well, for one, work days are so busy sometimes that I barely have time to breathe -- average patient seen 25 to 30, from STD exams to primary care. And since I decided to take full advantage of ...

  • 24 Hours on Call

    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. One year ago I ...

    In the past week, we shared the news that the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American College of Nurse Practitioners plan to merge. With 28 Facebook ''likes'' and many ''shares,'' it seems NPs support the decision. On our blog post readers are responding with positive comments, too. Cathy said, ''It's about time. This was so ...

  • The Little Clinic That Could

    Life has really settled down a little over 5 months into my job at the Martin County Health Department and my little satellite clinic in Oak City. As mentioned in previous posts, the Oak City Clinic was renovated from a little firehouse by a $56,000 grant from the GoldenLeaf Foundation. There was little money for necessary accoutrements so ...

  • Losing Purpose

    After reading my fellow colleague Elizabeth's blog I decided to tackle my grief. You see, my best friend and boyfriend of 11 years passed away last month. He was the reason I decided to pursue a career as a nurse practitioner and he was my biggest cheerleader. When I doubted myself, thinking I could never be a practitioner or even ever seeing ...
