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

    Two Catholic nuns found murdered in Mississippi home | Fox News

    Two nuns who worked as nurses and helped the poor in rural Mississippi were found murdered in their home Thursday, and there were signs of a break-in and their vehicle was missing, according to officials.
    The nuns were identified as Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, Holmes County Coroner Dexter Howard said.
    It was too early to say how the nuns died, but it doesn't appear that they were shot, according to Durant Assistant Police Chief James Lee. Their bodies were taken to a state crime lab for autopsies.
    The two women, both nurse practitioners, were found Thursday morning when they didn't report to work at a nearby hospital.

    I left because of personality differences and because I was offered more money with a different position. I wouldn't recommend my old doc for scrubbing butts. There is another group in Orange County and Los Angeles that was hiring NPs while back. Its an outfit run by a PA. Nice guy. When I talked to them years ago the split was 50/50 of net revenues. You had to drive your own car from place to place and pay for mileage. There were no benefits but I'm sure with the money you make you can buy your own benefits.

    My prior job was doing house calls in California. I worked for a MD and we split the revenues 51/49% based on net collections. Dealing with Medicare and all insurance is a pain in the arse. When I working there I averaged between $185k to $202K. I'm assuming if I worked alone I'd be grossing at least $400k but then you have to pay staff, pay for billing, supplies, travel etc. I'm sure it's lucrative if you do it yourself but it is not an easy job. Some patients homes are just covered in code brown. I can remember literally having to jump over puddles of poop. The resident there didn't seem to mind and APS said she was doing just fine. SMH

    I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. I'm a NP and would never work there. As an ICU nurse I worked for UAB. NP's there are not treated very well. You are correct in that your scope of practice is limited.

    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.

    Trump has a plan to salvage the USA from the damage done by the Obama administration. He has my vote and apparently the votes of many Americans.

    Not moving anytime soon sister. Love it here with the big melting pot of cultures and races. Variety is the spice of life! It's the liberals I can do without but you can't beat the weather. 85 degrees in February. Must suck to live where you are

    You are either young or ignorant. Or both.

    My ancestors were slaves. They were beaten, raped, tortured and treated worse than animals for more than three hundred years.

    We share that in common. Half of mine are Jewish. They were exterminated. I don't hate Germans for what what the Nazis did. That is the past. Germans are generally good people and I would surmise most white people born it the US are good people too.

    My grandparents were segregated. Black people were lynched openly and their murderers weren't punished. They were barred from opportunities for the color of their race.

    I am a college graduate. I went to school with every race imaginable. I have opportunities that my grandparents could only dream about and my ancestors couldn't even imagine.

    You and I also have that in common. As a white guy I was one of only a handful in my school. I agree I have more opportunities than my ancestors.

    I have to work twice as hard to get half as much as my white counterparts. But at least I have the ability to do so. My forefathers? Not so much.

    I have to work harder than my counterparts too. It's called competition and only the elite win. It doesn't matter the color of your skin or where you came from, all that matters is your attitude. Quit playing the race victim card.

    Quite frankly, your posts make you look rather ignorant and foolish. Did you not take any history classes during your schooling or did you just happen to skip them?
    I took many history classes. One of my hobbies is to research The Holocaust. Be careful with the words you spit out. As you prefer not to be judged by your color I prefer you not to judge my education by posts I write.

    Yes really. Did you watch the superbowl as Beyonce celebrated the 50 year anniversary of the Black Panthers. A group that advocates for the murders of any race but their own to advance a political cause?

    Have you seen the Black Lives Matter movement where no other race or life matters unless you are Black?

    Yes, I would say race relations are at all time low.
    I am offended that you characterize me as the lowest common denominator. I would expect more from a RN.

    Specifically America was great before Obama came into office. He has made our country weak, our enemies stronger, added more debt to the nation than all former Presidents combined and became the great divider. I have never seen race relations at such a horrible level. America was great and will be again.

    Socialism doesn't work. Look at Greece if you need a prime example. Larry David's cousin Bernie is a socialist.

    The percentage of Americans working is the lowest is has been since the 1970s. Do some research and find out for yourself. Too many Americans sit at home collecting government checks. The liberals love it that way. 5% unemployment is about as factual as Obama promising I could keep my health plan if Obamacare passed.

    Government is a business. We collect revenue and spend it.

    Our navy and army troop counts are at some of the lowest levels since WWII. That has to change.

    Nobody will be kicked off of insurance. You need to open up state borders so insurance companies can compete and rates will decrease. More affordable that what we have now.

    Trump is great, a self made man. I wish more of us could be like him.
    Kool Aid is for the liberals. I prefer single malt scotch

    First he will get rid of Obamacare and replace it with something better. Anything is better than what we have currently. He will make our military stronger and make our enemies fear us. He is a business man who knows how to WIN. We need to start winning again. I'm out of hope and most of my friends only have a little change in their pockets after 8 years of a dismal economy.
