    While we are at it, lets not allow sugary drinks or vending machines that sell candy in the lobby of the hotel (i mean hospital). That should help people loose weight and keep insurance costs down.

    This is not to rant on MD's. In fact I have I son who will be going to medical school. However it is becoming impossible in my state to run my own clinic. I LOVE what I do.....everyday. The fees we have to pay almost negate having your own business. I have been hired and fired so many times (budget cuts) that I gave up and started this. I'm not rushed. My patients get plenty of time and they spread the marketing for me. I know I could move to AZ and this would be a non issue. I just do not want to move. Do you, my colleagues believe we will see the day we can do this in any state. Most collaborative get 3 to 20k a month. That is straight off the bottom line. I know I am rambling but just finished up my balance sheet for July. Thoughts?

    Do not worry about this. Just do what they say and proceed forward. This will not matter in 10 years. In 2006 I was told I would never make it as a nurse. Today I am a Nurse Practitioner. The person who told me this is long gone. This is one obstacle of many you will incur over a lifetime.

    Competition can be a good thing. It can motivate people to succeed and be their best. However, the universe is big enough that an entire cohort can do well. No need to tear each other down. Build up your peers and celebrate the successes of all of you!

    I was in a medical spa and the injector told me the worst thing was the patient who brings in her friend. Friend always has too much to say about this and that and she's not even paying for the service.

    Wish I could speak with you. I am doing exactly this in Georgia. Overhead and physician supervision fees are killing me. Every one in the pocket. That said, I absolutely love it! My friend in Phoenix told me to move out there but I kept hoping for change in my state. I would love to partner with a NP. Not many doing this in Georgia.

    Just be friendly and offer your help. I was a travel RN for quite a few years. My first assignment I was terrified! But found a friendly face. I was always cordial. I ran across some who were catty but at the end of the contract every one was always good to me. Most people are good at their core. I'm 56 so I've seen a lot. Good luck and have fun.

    I will add that I would love to have my DNP. But at my age not worth the money. Least costly was 16k. No thanks!

    I like being a NP. Do not do it for the money though. I make more than a RN but not much more than a travel RN. I started my own gig in Jan but expenses will eat you alive.

    Thank you about Citi. I'll call them tommorrow and ask if they accept NPs.

    Get your accelerated BSN. Most programs are 12 to 16 months.

    They used to be about 10 to 15 years ago. That changed. COL through the roof. Now everyone is coming to my state ....Ugh.

    You can make this happen. You have already narrowed your geography for travel. I love your spirit! Toughest part will be the dogs prior to you getting your own gig.

    Yes, they include vets. Just not NPs or PAs.
