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One of the perks that has been rescinded ...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 ...
There are six different physicians in my practice and thus,
six different philosophical approaches to disease treatment and management. As
a new NP, this can be somewhat frustrating. Some days I wish medicine and
nursing were a bit more algorithmic. But alas, it ain't like baking a cake, so
here's to finding the silver lining.
My new collaborative physician
started two weeks ago, and while I was missing my former collaborative
physician, I was glad the company found someone to replace her. One of the
concerns regarding my company is no inclusion of the interview process. When I considered leaving this
company, I wanted to assist in filling my upcoming vacancy. I was ...
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.

I believe the
word ''no'' is very powerful and can be used in many ways. ''No'' can be used as a
safety mechanism. For example, ''No, you cannot mix Plavix and omeprazole,'' or,
''No, I don't believe that is a nodule, but a fatty tumor, which is normal.'' In
those types of contexts, the word ''no'' is not difficult. But as a new NP in a

and spread the word!
we posted the article ''Organizing and Investing to Expand Primary Care
Availability with Nurse Practitioners'' by Peter J. Levin and Rick Bateman from Journal of Community Health to our ...
On my first day working the clinic alone, I saw 19 patients, half of
whom were primary care patients and the others a combination of family
planning, child health, and STDs. The nurses were amazed and very pleasantly
surprised. Given that the PA who was fired saw seven to eight patients a day,
and often left the clinic without notice, anyone ...
We need to talk about cover letters. For several years now I have been preaching the importance of a cover letter, but it occurred to me that I have never told you how to write one! It's time for some cover letter basics.
Cover letters serve as an introduction. An effective cover letter should be brief, well organized and tailored to match the ...
