The time has come! I've passed boards, obtained my state license and I am scheduled to have ''temporary privileges'' at my facility next week! This is such an exciting time for my family and me! We've worked so hard for so many years and this is it.
The really amusing thing? I opened the mail a couple of weeks ago when my license came through ...
I feel obligated to warn you. I normally don't use this blog
for public service announcements but I learned of a disorder that all of you
will suffer from, if you haven't already. The good news: it doesn't last
forever and there is a treatment.
I am talking about New Graduate Syndrome (NGS). It affects
men and women of all ages after ...
Every day was Groundhog
Day. Well, to be fair it was early January but, like the 1993 Bill Murray
comedy, I felt like I was stuck in a time loop. The high of my graduation
ceremony had worn off weeks ago, so I made like a retired snowbird and headed
south to Florida for the winter. I camped at my mother's house while I waited
for the next ...

Last week, readers commented on two of our recent orthopedic articles. In response to ''After Your Patient's Knee Replacement,'' reader Thomas said, ''Nice article Jennifer - I had my TKR in 2010 and you described my overall experience quite well. Patients do really tend to forget that they lost their joint mobility slowly over a sustained time ...
Last week, a reader commented with praise for both NPs and PAs on our 2012 National Salary Survey of NPs & PAs. ''I am proud to see PAs and NPs getting along in the medical field. Both are great professions. I was an RN for 13 years prior to becoming a PA. I have been a PA for 8 years. I chose PA, because in 2001, NPs were basically ...
Terry Clarke, student nurse here. I am in an accelerated nurse practitioner program at UMASS Worcester. We just finished our year-long RN BSN equivalency. I've been feeling like a hand-stamped 18-year-old at a bar, able to join the conversations but not order a beer. As my NCLEX draws nigh, I finally feel competent to write about this experience. ...
