    Ready for my rant? Over the past year or two, I've noticed an increase in physician groups engaging in negative campaigning directed toward NPs. Could it have always been present but I just hadn't noticed? Or is the negativity a reaction to the numerous bills that have been introduced in several states to remove barriers and allow fully ...

  • The Art of Time Management

    We have all been to see a healthcare provider with a checklist of things we wish to accomplish during a visit. Isn't that why we go? Time management skills in medicine are essential.

  • Firepower for All APNs

    Nursing Economics just posted an advance copy of an article that will be published in its September/October issue, and it's easy to understand why. All advanced practice nurses will rejoice in this systematic review of literature published between 1990 and 2008, which concludes what NPs, CNSs, CNMs and CRNAs have known all along: They ...

  • Avoiding Burnout

    Seventeen months ago when I opened Pace Clinic I was excited to be out on my own. No more working for somebody, I could set my own hours, come and go as I please, and do my own thing. I have thoroughly enjoyed working for myself. However, even though I no longer have (a) boss, I still work for now thousands of bosses (my clients). Sure, I can ...

  • Don't Get Sued!

    During my 2 years attending graduate school in the University of Utah Family Nurse Practitioner program I remember hearing the phrase about being sued, ''it's not a matter of IF but WHEN.'' This has always worried me, especially now that I am a business owner. I have good medical liability insurance, but the thought of being sued is scary. ...
