In former days, of course. These days with everyone filming and selling to media I will pass. Sadly a sign of our times.
Thank you. I was concerned with the red tape of the govt it would take a long time. I called GA BON today and she could not give me an answer.
Call them and ask how many applicants they take. It appears to be new. I've considered Duke before and never saw this.
Thank you for this. A passion of mine is reading histories of women from a past era.
We are kind of a backward state. I have accepted that and not ready to relocate to a more progressive state yet as my son is in college here. Anyway, I have been informed that I need a DEA to continue my position. We have 2 offices. I alternate between the 2. How long or difficult will it be to get a DEA license. Thing is we do not even prescribe narcotics and i do not want to. But we have the random patient that needs 10 Ambien. Therefore to keep my current gig I need to do this. Thank you in advance!
I fell in love with travel nursing. So much so that I continued the lifestyle even after I earned my NP. Also made more money as a traveler. Kids got older. We bought a house in one of the cities I traveled to and settled down. I stopped traveling in 2012. I now teach NPs with a medical company part time so I still travel when I get the bug.
Congratulations! My dinner companion just finished her RN and she is close to your age. She is working med surgery in a large hospital in my city. My other RN friend wants to work hospice. My mother was in hospice and I don't care what age the nurse is. However, with age comes wisdom. Best to your new career!
Market is saturated with new NP's. I have 2 jobs and zero benefits. Had 3 jobs at one point. My son is a RN and works full time with benefits. He makes more per hour than me. One thing we've noticed is no one wants to pay for their healthcare. I kind of understand. They pay alot per month for health insurance and think things like labs, MRIs are free. They aren't. Then patients freak when they get a bill because deductible hasn't been met.
I am already a NP but considered the PMHNP program as an add on. I dropped out of the program. It made me depressed. My first clinical rotation was at a nursing home. Major meds thrown at these people. The people were so lonely. Meds were believed to solve the problem. It seemed easy enough but i could not stand it. That's just my personality perhaps.
Please do not worry about this. It is how life is these days. It sounds like you care for your patients well and that is all that matters. If someone has a problem they should speak with you personally. I agree with the above posters. It's a non event.
Unfortunately, cannabis. However, it will not be federally legal until the pharmaceutical companies know how to package, dispense and make money. We are most likely 20 years away from that. It will also require FDA trials. However, look at the data of narcotic addictions in the legal states. Yes, they still have issues but they do not share the same levels of heroin epidemics. I agree that someone with alcohol addiction should NOT be on Dilaudid.
Here we go. I knew this was coming (which is why I started this thread). They are now saying the shooter was on valium. Talking head on Fox news with Martha McCallum stated that primary care should not be prescribing these drugs. She said only a psychiatrist should Rx. Also these drugs can lead to blah blah blah. There are thousands of people who have anxiety/have taken benzodiazapines and have not shot at anyone. I wish I caught her name. I wonder what her medical background is, if she has any at all.
You have said you are shy and introverted. Nursing may not be for you. That is OK. It is very stressful. If you like helping people there are many other avenues and you can make a living at those. I have a friend who started in nursing and she is now doing eyelash extensions. Women pay big bucks for this. Probably more than nursing and way less school. There are many career paths and I agree that there is so shortage in nursing. My son just graduated with his BSN and is working nights in medsurg. That is all he could find and he commutes over an hour each way. BUT his intention is to do it for a year and see how it goes. He is not completely sold on it and he just spent 4 years in college. Make sure your personality gels with this career.
