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 ...
This week, we received a lengthy comment in opposition to making the DNP degree mandatory. The comment was posted on our DNP Answers blog post titled ''Feedback on the DNP.'' In the post, Mai Kung, NP, DNP, discusses the widespread acceptance of the DNP movement, citing the growing number of programs across the country as evidence ...
Last month during the lull of winter break, I had a sudden
fear that I would not be able to find a job after graduation. I guess it was

experience and so I am unsure about how to make a resume that doesn't have a

Q: From the Administrative Advanced Practice role and the DNP's perspective, I would be interested to know how many of you fall into this category and what kind of feedback you have been receiving related to the DNP degree versus a PhD or EdD. From my fairly limited current informal survey, many are viewing the degree as belonging solely to the ...
Happy NP Week 2012! This year, we are recognizing nurse practitioners across the country with the AANP theme, ''Your Partner in Health.'' We'd love to know what your facility is doing to celebrate.

Q: Please describe the DNP role in your NP specialty.
