  • Eat Your Young Or Teach Your Young?

    Last weekend I went to a fantastic pediatric conference and one of the talks was on preceptoring and how to be successful as a preceptor. During this talk they also gave a plethora of encouragement for NPs to become preceptors and asked those that had been preceptors to raise their hand...only about a quarter of the room raised their hand. This ...

I'm sure if I asked you to list your reasons you would have plenty. But will a potential employer find your reasons as compelling as you do?  When explaining to ...

  • Letting Go and Moving On

    Well I have told you about everything that I have gone through at the place where I work.

  • Non-traditional or New Practices

    Proceed carefully when considering a position with a new clinic or practice that is not yet open or established, especially if the clinic is embarking on a ''non-traditional'' or ''new healthcare model.'' Jobs like these can turn out to be the best thing you ever did or the biggest nightmare of your career.  The sales pitch for these types ...

  • Establishing Your DNP Credibility

    Sometimes being the first of your kind is exciting, and sometimes it can be daunting and confusing. When I received my DNP I felt empowered, but I did not know where I would find my niche in an organization where there were no other doctoral-prepared NPs or PAs.

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking – July 9, 2012

    In the past week, we shared the news that the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American College of Nurse Practitioners plan to merge. With 28 Facebook ''likes'' and many ''shares,'' it seems NPs support the decision. On our blog post readers are responding with positive comments, too. Cathy said, ''It's about time. This was so ...

  • 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. As providers, we have to find a nice balance that gives patients our undivided attention yet maintains efficiency and allows us to be productive. My goal in time ...

  • The Age of Technology Comes to NP Practices

I felt like Goldilocks and the three bears: One was way too expensive and required little effort, one was so complicated I was lost on the log in page, and the third was ''just right'' -- integrated ...
