  • 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 ...

  • Where the Journey Begins

    There are three little letters that every nurse ‘loves' to hear: AMA. I think I had one of my most difficult patients today in a long time. She wanted to leave against medical advice while actively bleeding from her radial artery. Yeah, it was messy situation in more ways than one. Today just reaffirmed my desire to pursue my degree and step ...

  • 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. On Facebook, reader Amber said, ''20 in my emergency physician group ... can get frustrating!'' On our blog, more readers weighed in. Here are some of their ...

  • 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 ...

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking – July 9, 2012

    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 ...
