  • Are NPs & PAs Facing Burnout?

    I have been hearing the ''B'' word in relation to advanced practice more frequently lately and it's beginning to worry me. Not because burnout is new, it isn't, we have been talking about burnout for years, but usually in the context of how we can fill the void of physicians deciding to leave practice. In fact, if we are completely honest, ...

  • Happy Thanksgiving

    Preparing for this week's Thanksgiving feast and the arrival of numerous family members has consumed my every thought for the past week. Finally, everyone is napping and I have a free moment to reflect on things that I am thankful for. How many people are thankful for their career as a NP/PA? I absolutely love my job and feel enormous gratitude ...

  • Transtheoretical Model for Change

    As healthcare providers and patient advocates, we are often faced with convincing our charges that a change is needed. Human nature is to resist change. Most of us settle into familiar routines in our lives and jobs and, no matter how inefficient or unhealthy our routines may be, we are very reluctant to disrupt the flow of our conventions. It is ...

  • Keeping Up with Being a DNP

    When I became a nurse practitioner, I was overwhelmed with the amount of information I had to retain from school. On top of that, keeping up with the most up-to-date research to support my clinical practice was hard, too.

  • Policy and the DNP

    For many DNPs - and nurses in general - politics and policy making are important tasks best left to someone else. As clinical nurse leaders, however, who is better suited to shape help medical policy than the DNP? Nurses are already well placed in various government agencies and organizations, but the grass root effort is often lacking (Milstead, ...

  • "I Hate My Neck"

    Looking in the mirror at submental (under the chin) fat, loose, crepey, puckered skin and tight platysmal bands going down the neck can have a psychological impact. Loss of the definition of the jawline and neck can be from a genetic predisposition, weight gain or aging. It is generally considered aesthetically unappealing. Most seem to be aware ...

  • Job Interviews & Food Allergies

    Dear Career Coach:  I am a new grad NP with celiac disease and I am unable to eat at restaurants due to potential cross-contamination that inevitably leaves me ill for a week. What suggestions do you have to handle not being able to eat at a restaurant, without coming across like a ''major diva'' as you mentioned? Dear Reader:  The ...

  • Job Satisfaction

    For as long as I can remember, NPs and PAs have been repeating the mantra of ''same care, less cost.'' I am beginning to wonder if our some of our messages are now coming back to haunt us. It wouldn't be the first time good intentions turned out to have unintended consequences.   When I was a student I once discussed this very subject ...

  • The Use of Dermatoscopes

    I had a student ask me recently if I had a dermatoscope and if I could show her how to use it. The answer was simple enough. No, I don't need one. This of course led to the logical question...Why? This blog post was inspired by this exchange. The simplest answer to this question is that if I see something that looks abnormal, I biopsy it. ...
