Dear Dr. Shelby,
My name is Ligita Centorino. I am a family nurse practitioner student in Phoenix, Arizona. I was researching NP national organizations and I was impressed to learn about your developed organization. I have chosen to promote your organization in my school, however, I have some additional questions I was not able to find answers on ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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We have been working hard for years on passage of a bill to update the nurse practice act and free APRNs of outdated and restrictive practice agreements.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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
We have carved deep into the second half of my first year as
a professional physician assistant. 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 ...
