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 ...
We have carved deep into the second half of my first year as
a professional physician assistant. This is the perfect time for a Quarterly
Check-Up to examine some of the biggest lessons over the last three months
We learned that our
patient's beliefs can trump the strongest medicine and that our acceptance
of those beliefs makes us better ...
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 ...
So I go from working part-time as a nurse to not really working
and just doing clinicals. My preceptors were pretty good about working with us

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
making more money.
The DNP provides you with the tools and resources to ...
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 ...
What I dislike about my job:
(OK, folks, this topic was a suggestion from someone. So, if you happen to be my boss reading this, please understand I truly mean every word I say. Including the fact that I know I work for a great company that does its best to respond to what we need. And considering some of the things that could happen - ...
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 ...
Presently the scope of practice in Retail Clinics is limited to minor acute illness. In the future there seem to be many areas of preventive care that the idea of convenient and lower priced would work well with. Blood pressures and offering other screening is used in marketing the idea of the retail clinic to the general public. It is just a ...
