Dear Career Coach: I am wondering if you have any thoughts or advice about finding a job after age 60. I have been in practice for about 18 years. I am finding it rather scary to quit my job because I am worried about whether I will really be able to get another job. What do you think?
Dear Mature Job Seeker: Employers are looking for two main ...
So I've written about cases the last couple of times and I'm
thinking it's time to give you guys an update. I've been in my position as NP
in an acute care setting seeing cardiology patients for 3 months now. I can't
believe it! It's going really well and I'm really grateful that this
opportunity was given to me. I've learned so much already ...
So I go from working part-time as a nurse to not really working
and just doing clinicals. My preceptors were pretty good about working with us
regarding schedules, which was amazing because I have 2 kids and a crazy
husband. This was more beneficial than I EVER realized!
Now? I realize... Let's see... In my first three weeks, I've
I had one of the most difficult days I've ever had from an
emotional standpoint at work last week. There was a patient that had close
personal ties to our facility that was admitted for new onset a-fib. He was
young so we cardioverted him and thought that he would be fine. He had no
significant medical history and was in decent physical shape. ...
Well, as you guys know, I've passed boards and have already
accepted a position in an acute care setting. I actually started yesterday and
am so excited! So far I've been in orientation and the anticipation of actually
rounding and caring for patients is killing me! I start rounding next week and
am really looking forward to sharing this ...
Wow! What a year this has been and with each opportunity and
experience I have been able to share, I have the ADVANCE community to thank for helping me to grow and be a better
professional. I have met so many wonderful people who continue to offer support
and challenge me with my every day struggles as an NP working in corrections.
Over the ...
Last week, NP & PA Student blogger Terry Clarke shared his concerns over the status of nursing. ''I am currently in a class called ‘Societal Forces' as a precursor to my first semester of advanced assessment in the Adult/Gero Primary Care Nurse Practitioner track. The teachers are passionate and well informed. The speakers are excellent, but ...
Time, because of its duplicitous intangibility and
quantifiable nature is, to me, a perennially elusive phenomenon. You can
measure it but you can't hold it and yet it dictates the rhythms of life. While
I reflect on these ephemeral characteristics, the advent of 2013 ushers forth
the commencement of my second year as a Nurse Practitioner.
I am currently in a
class called ''Societal Forces'' as a precursor to my first semester of
advanced assessment in the Adult/Gero Primary Care Nurse Practitioner track.
The teachers are passionate and well informed. The speakers are excellent, but
the subject matter...The subject matter is frankly depressing. The class theme
seems to ...
Dear Career Coach: I will
be graduating this May as a new nurse practitioner. I am concerned about the
advice not to skip dates because it may cause my application to be rejected by
HR computer systems. Before beginning my studies I had no direct health care
experience and so I am unsure about how to make a resume that doesn't have a
big gap ...
