    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 ...

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 ...

  • Will We Ever Get Past the Term “Male Nurse?”

    Unbelievable! As far as the healthcare industry has come, as far as the nursing profession has come, and as far as we as human beings have come-and still, here I was, in shock and disbelief as I drove by   Cheshire Regional Rehabilitation Center's latest billboard, which is located near Exit 25 on I-84 East in Waterbury, CT.  It ...

  • Nurse First, Manager Second

    Being a nursing manager these days, people automatically assume means being dressed in a suit with a lab coat, rarely venturing out to patient care areas and a having a nice big office. The biggest complaint that I hear is that managers forget about being nurses and are not clinically involved and lack clinical credibility. Reality check. I ...
  • What’s on the Horizon for Nursing in 2016?

    After recently giving a presentation on Florence Nightingale, I mused on the changes nursing has seen through the ages. For example? In 1887, one rule for nurses stated that any nurse who smoked, used liquor in any form, got her hair done at a beauty shop or frequented a dance hall would ''give the director of nurses good reason to suspect her ...

  • Is It Really About Autonomous PT Practice?

    My post last month, ''The DPT: How Did They Miss This?'' has generated numerous comments on the ADVANCE website, almost entirely from readers who agreed with its content. One exception, however, was an assistant professor of physical therapy who stated that making the DPT a mandatory entry-level degree was necessary for the pursuit of autonomous ...

  • Are There Enough PT Schools?

    Besides volunteering recently at the Texas Physical Therapy Association (TPTA) annual conference, I also had a chance to meet with both professionals and students. It turned out the number of PT schools is a hot topic in the profession. The answer depends on who you ask. Students and would-be students both think there aren't enough schools. They ...

  • How to Get Elected to the APTA

    Last weekend was the Texas Physical Therapy Association annual conference. Before the conference began, I attended a board meeting. Among the items on the agenda was a nomination to the APTA.
