Geeze, scanning too fast and misread it as How many NP's does it take to diagnose a patient? I thought it was a joke, like how many politicians does it take to screw in a light bulb! Actually, I think I like mine better. So- what do you think? How many NPs does it take to dx a pt? 3? One to see the patient, one to comb through ICD-10 and one to argue with the insurance company? Make that two to argue!
I don't know but it is one of the things I like least about nursing. I have not found it everywhere I have worked as a nurse, but I gave run into it a lot more here than in other professions in which I have worked. It reminds me of Junior High sometimes. Maddening.
Hi! Good to hear from another admitted student! I am just starting what looks to be a challenging stretch- biostats to pharm to advanced path...but honestly at least it is pertinent, unlike writing about the three branches of the federal government. Man. I wish we could spend more time in school on stuff we actually need- like stuff we will actually USE in the job! I am worried about biostats which I am starting TODAY. I set it up to work part time, as the older I get the more I value my sanity!! Any way you can work 12s? Pay some stuff off before then?
