Question for you: How do you find your medical provider?
The most obvious of answers to this question is our dear
friend, Google. What was life like before this search engine giant? I
don't remember. I mean, seriously, who doesn't google twenty things
throughout the course of the day? The truth is, however, there ...
More dermatological procedures, such as biopsies and
excisions, are being done in primary care settings than ever before. With this
in mind I want to give everyone some food for thought as to how they can more
accurately read the pathology. As clinicians seeing patients, we have the
advantage of talking to a patient, seeing their rashes and ...
I'm not a doctor basher. In fact I'm actually quite the
Over the course of my career I have worked with some great
docs. They have been encouraging, helpful and generally treated me as a peer. During
my education I had physician preceptors and early in my career I had physician
mentors. In my practice I have consulted with ...
So I go from working part-time as a nurse to not really working
and just doing clinicals. My preceptors were pretty good about working with us
regarding schedules, which was amazing because I have 2 kids and a crazy
husband. This was more beneficial than I EVER realized!
Now? I realize... Let's see... In my first three weeks, I've
Have you received a job offer but you just aren't sure you
are ready to accept? Maybe you feel a little rushed, maybe you didn't get all
your questions answered. This happens more often than you think.
I always tell job seekers that getting a job offer is a bit
like receiving a marriage proposal. It's very flattering to know that you ...
Wow! What a year this has been and with each opportunity and
experience I have been able to share, I have the ADVANCE community to thank for helping me to grow and be a better
professional. I have met so many wonderful people who continue to offer support
and challenge me with my every day struggles as an NP working in corrections.
Over the ...
I am currently in a
class called ''Societal Forces'' as a precursor to my first semester of
advanced assessment in the Adult/Gero Primary Care Nurse Practitioner track.
The teachers are passionate and well informed. The speakers are excellent, but
the subject matter...The subject matter is frankly depressing. The class theme
seems to ...
Every day is an adventure at the correctional facility and
at times it is not from the inmates. Oftentimes, it is from the person I like to call
''The Lovely Doctor.'' I do not know why I call him that, but maybe it is because
it is the nicest name I can call him...yes! It is sarcasm at its finest.
One of the perks that has been rescinded ...
Over the past month I have had some very challenging
patients. I will often question, why and how did someone end up here at the
correctional facility? I believe it is better I do not know. Actually, it is
none of my business; it keeps the care unbiased and pure and it does not impact
how I treat them. If one of the inmates upsets the ...
Q: Please describe the DNP role in your NP specialty.
A: I will step up on my DNP soapbox once again to say that completing
your DNP serves to open up a new way of thinking, a way to approach
your practice. It is not an avenue for developing a new position or
making more money.
The DNP provides you with the tools and resources to ...
