    Dear Dr. Shelby, My name is Ligita Centorino. I am a family nurse practitioner student in Phoenix, Arizona.

I have chosen to promote your organization in my school, however, I have some additional questions I was not able to find answers on ...

  • NPs as PCPs

    Since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) first made headlines, a frequent topic in the media has been the shortage of primary care providers (PCPs) to accommodate the influx of newly insured patients. At the time of its implementation, it was estimated that there would be a shortfall of 45,000 to 60,000 PCPs to provide care for the millions of newly ...

  • To Be Or Not To Be... Autonomous

    I'm sitting here at work, trying to figure out what to write about today. As I ruminate, I realize what a great team of people I work with every day and this reminds me of an assignment I recently completed for class. The question proposed for class was, ''Do physicians work autonomously?'' As I wrote the assignment it made me think about nurse ...

  • When the Nurse Wants to be Called Doctor

    Getting my DNP was challenging, but, unfortunately, my employer was not as supportive as I had hoped of my hard-earned achievement. When I received my doctorate I intended to introduce myself as Dr. Cash to patients and wanted staff to address me as such, as well. I found out this would be harder than I thought. The organization I work for is ...

  • Q&A with Dr. Debra #2

    Here is another question sent to me on the NADNP website @ www.NADNP.net ''I am an ARNP with FNP-C certification and 10 years experience in dermatology. Recently, a new office manager was hired and has changed the billing for midlevel providers to direct billing with insurance carriers. Prior to this we all billed under the supervising MD who ...

  • NPs: Continue to Educate and Demand Respect

    A funny thing happened on the way to full practice authority... We have been working hard for years on passage of a bill to update the nurse practice act and free APRNs of outdated and restrictive practice agreements. In fact we have been focused for so long on achieving our goal that we haven't really thought much past - well, achieving ...

  • The Providers of ‘No'

    Ready for my rant? Over the past year or two, I've noticed an increase in physician groups engaging in negative campaigning directed toward NPs. Could it have always been present but I just hadn't noticed? Or is the negativity a reaction to the numerous bills that have been introduced in several states to remove barriers and allow fully ...

  • What's Up, Doc?

    In our urgent care there are four full time providers: three physician assistants and myself. Our medical director, a physician, comes in one half shift per week. As we enter a patient's room, we always introduce ourselves by our title. ''Hi, I'm Katrin and I am a nurse practitioner.'' There is never any bait or switch and patients are aware ...

  • Privacy and Confidentiality

    I don't know about you, but there isn't a day that goes by when I don't have some sort of umm....interesting experience at work. I understand how awfully tempting it is to jump on Facebook or Twitter and share the events of my day with all 100+ or so of my closest ''friends''. It's so very rewarding to watch a post collect ''likes'' and ...

  • The Quarterly Check-Up: Part 3

This is the perfect time for a Quarterly Check-Up to examine some of the biggest lessons over the last three months We learned that our patient's beliefs can trump the strongest medicine and that our acceptance of those beliefs makes us better ...
