I don't know about you, but there isn't a day that goes by
when I don't have some sort of umm....interesting
experience at work. I understand how awfully tempting it is to jump on Facebook
or Twitter and share the events of my day with all 100+ or so of my closest
''friends''. It's so very rewarding to watch a post collect ''likes'' and ...
More dermatological procedures, such as biopsies and
excisions, are being done in primary care settings than ever before. With this
in mind I want to give everyone some food for thought as to how they can more
accurately read the pathology. As clinicians seeing patients, we have the
advantage of talking to a patient, seeing their rashes and ...
I'm not a doctor basher. In fact I'm actually quite the
Over the course of my career I have worked with some great
docs. They have been encouraging, helpful and generally treated me as a peer. During
my education I had physician preceptors and early in my career I had physician
mentors. In my practice I have consulted with ...
Q: Please describe the DNP role in your NP specialty.
A: I will step up on my DNP soapbox once again to say that completing
your DNP serves to open up a new way of thinking, a way to approach
your practice. It is not an avenue for developing a new position or

When it comes to resumes, more is less -- less effectiveness that is.
I have noticed that when it comes to creating a resume, most people just can't seem to say enough about themselves. They continue to add more and more content. The vast majority of resumes that I review are far too long and much too wordy. I'm not entirely sure why this ...
Are you applying for out-of-state jobs and finding it difficult to get an interview or even a call back?
It's no secret that jobs are still competitive. Tight market conditions have led to more and more clinicians broadening their searches to include a larger and wider geographical area. More NPs and PAs are finding it necessary to consider ...
Health system analysts and assorted other parties have been forecasting a primary care physician shortage for quite some time. An article published recently in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons predicts two additional shortfalls that could affect patient access to care: nurse practitioners and physician ...

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I often write about the importance of a clear, concise resume that contains all the critical elements employers want to see. That is your responsibility as a job seeker. If employers don't find the information they need in your resume, they won't call you.
This week I will ...
Over the past year or so, nurse practitioner organizations have received less and less financial support from the pharmaceutical industry for various events at national and state conferences. This started as a result of significant shifts in marketing practices that have nothing to do with the NP profession, and now is also a reflection of overall ...
I have only anecdotal evidence, but it seems that there are a lot of new NP practices opening out there. In the past few weeks, I've received four Practice Snapshot surveys from NPs who've been in business just since the end of 2007 — two of whom I convinced to help me launch a private practice blog on this site, so stay tuned.
I've also already ...
