  • When the Nurse Wants to be Called Doctor

    Getting my DNP was challenging, but, unfortunately, my employer was not as supportive as I had hoped of my hard-earned achievement.

  • Challenging Patients in the Correctional Facility

    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 ...

  • Pain Patients

    My contact with pain patients was extensive during my residency in Aurora, North Carolina, a coastal town of about 400, with a patient population compromising of retirees, commercial fisherman and above-ground miners from a phosphate mine. I knew from that experience that even if I never found a job as an NP, I would not choose to do pain ...

  • Google Yourself!

    I am considering buying a new camera. After a visit to the camera shop and listening to several sales pitches, I have narrowed it down to choosing between two or three different models. To help me make my final decision I intend to do some research online. All I need to do is ''google'' the name of a camera to see what opinions and details are ...
