I work as a dermatology nurse practitioner and love it! I'm politically conservative, speak with a Southern accent and live in Southern California.

    I found this interesting

    Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are especially likely to work past 65, according to a national workforce survey conducted in 2013 by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) and the National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers. Eight percent of registered nurses (RNs)—but 17 percent of APRNs—are 65 or older, it found. About one in four clinical nurse specialists (25 percent) and certified nurse-midwives (23 percent) are 65 or older, and about one in 10 nurse practitioners and nurse anesthetists are 65 or older.

    I never plan on retiring as long as I have a sound mind and body. I enjoy working. I couldn't imagine not working. Age 48 now. At a minimum I have another 25 years of working ahead of me until I croak. Most of my relatives drop dead in their late 70s.

    I assume that annual physicals and MMSE would be a good starting point. One's primary care provider along with one's trusted peers can make recommendations as to your ability to practice safely.
    I work along with 80 year old dermatologists and primary care physicians who are still practicing and doing it well. These guys works because they love the job. They are still teaching at the university and precepting students and training residents. Age is just a number.

    FWIW, my personal dermatologist is 83 and my primary care physician is 81. I actually prefer to be seen by older practitioners as their 40 to 50 years of experience are priceless.

    I do this and get paid $80 per visit for just the physical assessment. If I get labs ie blood or urine they pay an extra $20 so I try to get labs on all of my patients. $100 per visit with 10 visits a day on average. I usually get done with each patient in 30 to 45 minutes. The more you do it the quicker you get at it.

    Made $800 to $1000 on most days. No bennies, working as an independent contractor. I believe Medicare reimbuses the company around $217.00 for the assessments.

    Great way to make bank.

    I work full time doing house calls. My patients for whatever reason can not make into a clinic. Most have mobility issues. It is the best job I've ever had. I work with two other internal medicine doctors, two podiatrists and an opthamologist. We have medical assistants that drive us from home to home for appointments. You are providing the same type of primary care that you would provide in a medical office. I bring all of my supplies and drugs with me that I would need to use in an office. The compensation is great but you have to negotiate. All of my patients are Medicare, very, very complicated sick patients. I think most housecall patients are usually high complex patients. In my situation I get paid 51% of net revenues. This year it will be around $180k. I normally work 6 to 7 hours a day. If you can find a job doing house calls, go get it!

    As a former drug rep who is now a NP I have a different view. I use them as a resource. These reps know more about the job market for NPs than most NPs do. They go into all of the clinics, know the politics, who has an opening and who is about to get fired. It's a great resource if you want to find out about new jobs around your community. These reps are also the experts on the drugs they promote. They spend their entire day promoting one or two products. If I have a question that I can't find the answer to online I will have them do a "medical inquiry" and have a doc from their company answer my questions regarding drug interactions side effects etc. I always make a point to interact with them if I have five minutes. It's called networking and you can never have enough of that in your career.

    I have two jobs and work in Cali. I work a regular 8 to 5 job and then on the weekends if I want I pick up a shift or two at the urgent care. If I'm in the mood to work a ton I pick up a night shift at the urgent care during the week. It just depends on how much money I want to make that week.
