Many of the students had been at at least one of their clinical sites since beginning their programs and were now feeling quite comfortable. Some students even stated that a nurse or two had asked ...

  • Is It Illegal to Use the 'Doctor' Title?

    Q: I hear there are states where using the title “doctor” is illegal if you are not an MD. Which states are these, and how would a DNP graduate introduce him- or herself to patients in those states? A: To begin, I hope that all of us who have earned our doctorate degrees, be it the PhD, DNSc or DNP, step back to realize that any efforts to ...

  • What Title Should DNPs Use at Work?

    Here at the DNP Answers blog we take your questions about the DNP and answer them as best we can. This post is written by blogger Mai Kung, NP, a recent DNP graduate. Q: NPs must be very careful to explain who we are and what we can do for our patients. Do you find your DNP title confuses patients? Is DNP on your name tag in your clinic? A: I ...

  • Children and Retail Health

    Welcome to my blog an ongoing discussion into the world of retail health. Today I am going to think out loud about children and school/camp/sports physicals.

  • Decision, Decision, Decision

    One of the primary roles of a Retail Clinician is decision making. These decisions can rank from minor day-to-day operational decision to major clinical decision. In this setting Retail Nurse Practitioners are forced to make many decisions that are not routine in other settings. These decisions can be complex and pose major challenges for Retail ...
