  • 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 ...

  • The Changing Seasons

    To every thing there is a season... By the time you read this, we will have a new President-elect of the United States. At this time of year, many of us are preparing for a new legislative season not only in Congress but also in our state legislatures. As a DNP, I believe this is a perfect time to leverage our position as leaders in ...

  • Filling in Résumé 'Gaps'

    Dear Career Coach: I am an NP, but I have not worked in 2 years. How can I get back into the workforce? Dear Reader: You are not alone! Your question is one that I am asked with some regularity. I have a number of thoughts and a few points to share that you may not have considered. Usually when NPs who have been out of the workplace reach out ...

  • 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 ...

  • Healthcare Management

    The healthcare management world is filled with clinicians. Unlike the corporate environment where most are trained and obtain a management degree in business, the healthcare hierarchy is built on direct care providers. Though direct knowledge of healthcare is a huge asset, most managers, once they transition into this role, do not feel the ...

  • Full Practice Authority

    How much do you know about full practice authority (FPA)? As NPs, we have state and federal laws and regulations that govern our practice. As we prepare for fall elections and legislative sessions in the new year, we all need to consider our ability to practice to the full extent of our education and training. I live in Virginia. If you look at ...

  • 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 ...

  • Can Helmetless Drills Decrease Football Head Impacts?

    The National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA), Dallas, issued an interesting press release Dec. 18 related to the hot-button issue of head impacts in football. The release stated: ''Head impacts in football players are directly associated with brain and spine injury and have been suggested to be associated with chronic injuries, making this ...
  • The Obesity Issue

    Last week I heard a statistic about obesity in the United States. Currently 36% of all Americans are obese, with the number higher in the older population, according to a recent survey. I don't know if the number is accurate but it's probably close. That is a scary number for PTs since the majority of our patient population falls into the older ...

  • Coworker Complaint

    ''No good deed goes unpunished.'' I learned this week how true that saying is. A couple of weeks ago I gave a new graduate therapist a piece of advice. I thought I was telling it to him in confidence. I didn't think much about it. I didn't want him to get caught up in a situation at the facility. It seemed so simple and unimportant. In fact I ...
