We have been performing LLLT for over a decade to treat ...
Nurse Practitioner Week is November 9-15, 2014 and as of 2014, there are more than 192,000 NPs in the US. That's up from 140,000 in 2010 - a huge jump that is expected to rise to 244,000 by 2025!
Since I first entered my master's NP program, I have been involved with my local chapter of the Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners. I have had so ...
When starting in dermatology, most people look for the dermatology books with pictures and treatment. However, some skip the step of understanding what is happening in the skin and the reason for the morphology seen. Once again, I will recommend the Principles of Dermatology by Lookingbill and Marks. It is helpful to get the principles of ...
I'm Fawn Workman and I am a brand new MSN graduate. I'm so new that I'm still waiting for a test date for my FNP boards! I'm glad you have come to read about my thoughts and musings on my first year as an NP.
Since April, I have logged several thousand miles driving for clinical in another state while living with family members. I've also flown ...
From August 3-8, I went away to Boy Scout Camp to work as the nurse for the week. This is the first year we have been involved in the organization with my six year old son and the first year that we decided to send him away to resident camp.

Dear Reader: The ...
I recently had the opportunity to return to Hyden, Kentucky for their Diversity Impact weekend. This is the second time I have had the privilege to attend and was even more excited to be there as an alumni of Frontier Nursing University.
When I first thought of diversity, my mind automatically jumped to the word minority. I soon found out that ...

In her hands she held a letter from a patient, thanking the office for the great care that she received. The office manager eagerly asked us to see who saw her and I was surprised to find out that it ...

daily basis. It truly amazes me, the differences in between patients' reactions
when facing a ''death sentence.'' I'm sure this can be noted in all walks of the
healthcare system, as well, but it's by far been most noticeable to me in the

It's ironic that I wrote my last post on October 15, 2012,
the 1-year anniversary of my one and only job as an NP.
What a year! Or, rather, what a year and a half! The worst
