I was recently speaking with a group of students who will be
graduating this year about their current clinical rotations and how things are
going. Many of the students had been at at least one of their clinical sites
since beginning their programs and were now feeling quite comfortable. Some students
even stated that a nurse or two had asked ...
On Facebook last week, we shared the Aesthetics Practice Today blog, ''Maintaining Facial Balance with Liquid Facelifts.'' Blogger Mina Grasso described the impressive effects of this treatment but warned clinicians to outline clear expectations to their patients. Facebook fan Shane commented, ''I do these all the time. Patients never, ever have ...
The other day, I came across an article about Val Patterson, a man who was diagnosed with terminal throat cancer. What made his story memorable was that before passing away on July 10, 2012, he wrote his own obituary. It was printed in his local newspaper and then throughout the world. Thousands of people have read it; hundreds have left comments ...
There are several divisions to the medical department at the correctional facility, and for the most part, everyone works collaboratively. There is the medical team consisting of myself, my collaborative physician and our nurse, an LPN.

As NPs & PAs approached the holiday weekend (and with
any luck, a few days off), and editor Michelle Perron Pronsati and senior

social networks, community pages and articles buzzed with thoughtful comments

A: To begin, I hope that all of us who have earned our doctorate degrees, be it the PhD, DNSc or DNP, step back to realize that any efforts to ...
We sat in silence for what seemed an eternity. Her face was still, and she was holding back tears. She was uncomfortable. I was, too. Awkward silence engulfed us like dense, heavy fog. You could cut the atmosphere with a knife. I tried filling the air with chatter: ''Nice shoes,'' I said.
What's the meaning of silence? Is it just an empty space ...
Here at the DNP Answers blog we take your questions about the DNP and
answer them as best we can. This post is written by blogger Mai Kung,
NP, a recent DNP graduate. Q: NPs must be very careful to explain who we are and what we can do for our patients. Do you find your DNP title confuses patients? Is DNP on your name tag in your clinic?
A: I ...
I am sure that everyone is aware of the swing flu scare that took place a few weeks ago. This was an uncertain time for everyone in the medical and public health arena. However, after working in a retail health clinic during this time, I realized that the public turns to retail clinic providers to help them understand and process public health ...
Hellos to all you people reading about Retail Nursing.
I hate mucous. I hate viruses. I hate antibiotics and sinus infections. I now know that my strep screen tests work. If I get my face breathed in by some sweet little kid again this week, I will cry. I get asked how I keep from getting ill with all of the illness around. I sometimes wonder ...
