  • Recording Dates

    Time flies and memory fades. Remember that Seinfeld episode where the character lost one old piece of information in order to make room for every new piece of information learned? At least I think it was Seinfeld, I can't remember for sure... I'm sure you have all had the experience of filling out a job application and found yourself struggling ...

  • Five Strategies to Sabotage Your Next Job

    Here are some sure ways to sabotage your next position while job hunting: Applying for a new job until you are clear about what it would take for you to leave your present job. Employers hate fishing expeditions. Before you start sending out applications ask yourself what it will take for you to make the move. Is it salary or schedule? What ...

  • The Practical Doctorate in Other Health Disciplines

    Since I seem to have lost a host of readers last post in my discussion of what we can learn from history, I will proceed with... more lessons from history. Never fear, I expect the next couple posts will be about nurse entrepreneurship, which seems to garner more enthusiasm.  As philosopher George Santayana said, ''Those who cannot remember ...

  • 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 ...

  • Precept to Perm

    I'm seeing a new trend taking hold - it's called ''precept to perm.'' It is hardly a new idea, but it has been given an official name, causing it to trend and become more common. If you are a student, you might have already encountered this phenomenon. If you are a seasoned clinician looking for a new position, it could impact your job search, as ...

  • The Lull Between RN and NP

    All required packets have been submitted to their respective entities. My immune system has been prepped with a TDAP booster, influenza vaccine and PPD administration. Drug screen was completed and now I have to do what I do not do best: wait. To keep my mind busy I have been cranking out the hours in the ER as an RN and have also been ...

  • Onward and Upward

    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. ...

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking – July 23, 2012

    Last week, New Grad NP blogger Samantha Damren posted the struggle she encounters working with multiple physicians: memorizing the preferences and practices of each.

  • To Be Human Is Enough

    After Mother Teresa's death, it was revealed that in private correspondence she wrote of not feeling the presence of God - of lack of faith and spiritual anguish. Helen Keller, who spent her life fighting for suffrage and the rights of the disabled, was a radical socialist. Florence Nightingale was a long-term user of opiates. These facts are a ...
