  • Negotiating the Employment Contract

    Negotiating an employment contract doesn't have to be a battle. If you feel as if you are about to engage in an adversarial process, then you are approaching it all wrong. Employment contracts shouldn't be viewed from a perspective that leads to a winner and a loser. In fact, the hallmark of a successful negotiation is that neither party will ...

  • Social Media: A Job Hunting Wildcard

    You might be surprised what impressions an employer may form about you just by looking at your social media postings. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that your employer (or potential employer) is even looking at your online postings at all.   Checking social media has become a fairly routine part of the hiring ...

  • How to Find the Right Job for You

    No one wants their dream job to turn into a nightmare. My recruiting days were spent listening to NPs who were frustrated and wanted out of their current position. Salary and benefits weren't the problem; the problem was literally the workplace itself. They told me stories of toxic workplace cultures, horrendous work expectations and miserable ...

  • Re-evaluating the ‘Dream Job’

    What's the first thing that comes in to your mind when I say the words ''dream job?'' I would venture to say your initial thoughts will go in the direction of pay, hours or perhaps location. If I gave you a few minutes more to ponder, you would likely add some other elements such as the patient population you will be serving, the number of ...

  • Ups and Downs of an Online Program

    A large and reputable healthcare organization in our community has recently added a footnote to all posted NP job openings, declaring they will no longer hire new grads from ''certain programs.'' The excluded programs are not named, but you will find a very short statement that refers to ''proprietary online'' schools this employer feels do not ...

  • It's OK for New NPs to Need Guidance!

    Dear Career Coach: I need some coaching to help me find the right NP job. I graduated with my MSN in 2012 and am currently working, but I am having difficulty due to not getting what I needed in my graduate program. I am also a certified diabetes educator and would ideally like to combine my extensive experience in diabetes education with an NP ...

  • Should We Be Certified As DNPs?

    With the push for doctoral-level nurse practitioners, one of the major questions has been should NPs have to take an extended certification exam in order to be recognized as a Doctor of Nursing. This topic is highly controversial because most practice-based professions that have a doctoral degree do not required an extended certification in order ...

  • Interview Questions

    I've conducted many interviews over the years and can tell you that nothing sinks an otherwise successful interview faster than the candidate who asks no questions. Many candidates seem to feel it is acceptable when asked if they have questions to answer with ''no, I think you answered them all''. Really? You want to commit to spending most of ...

  • Eat Your Young Or Teach Your Young?

    Last weekend I went to a fantastic pediatric conference and one of the talks was on preceptoring and how to be successful as a preceptor. During this talk they also gave a plethora of encouragement for NPs to become preceptors and asked those that had been preceptors to raise their hand...only about a quarter of the room raised their hand. This ...

  • Recording Dates

    Time flies and memory fades. Remember that Seinfeld episode where the character lost one old piece of information in order to make room for every new piece of information learned? At least I think it was Seinfeld, I can't remember for sure... I'm sure you have all had the experience of filling out a job application and found yourself struggling ...
