I appreciate everyone's input. I'm definitely going to start reading textbooks when it relates to patient care/expanding my knowledge base to be better prepared to care for my future patients. Thanks again, everyone!
Simmons > Chamberlain.
Any studies or literature to further support this?
I've seen a few bad cases in which the provider didn't do there homework and got screwed, but for sure the exception and not the rule. If you have proper coverage/limits on an employer paid for policy, then you may not need any additional coverage. It doesn't matter how many employers you have or just one job. Every job needs it's own policy if they are not the same entity and/or scope of practice. How many RNs get there own policy?
You absoluetly need your own policy don't count on your employers especially if working in two roles at two facilities.
It is possible, sure.
There are some potential legal concerns so make sure at least you carry your own malpractice insurance.
An APRN may possess more knowledge and education in their field of study. I will not ever refer to them as my superior as that denotes a misconception. They have no relationship to the RN beyond providing patient care orders. Those with a perceived God complex will garner no respect from me.
Living with the insecurity that an RN realizes NP's are not a superior must be daunting as well.
Nurse practitioners are not my superior, nor the OP's. Despite your insistence that they are.
A nurse practitioner is not my superior. They cannot discipline an RN. They have no further relationship to the RN beyond providing patient care orders.
FNP students/grads...did you read all reading assignments? Do you think my method is sustainable for FNP school?
Any and all replies are greatly appreciated.
And you have absolutely zero nursing experience. And I hope you aren't referring to yourself as an NP as "superior", not even for a second.
Definitely. And please record it. And share as an article here on AN. For science, obviously.
The next time my wife complains I am going to cite this article. I know she will appreciate my thoughtfulness.
In terms of your investment, absolutely it matters where you go to school. Go to the best quality program you can get into.
Employment is important in the end, but in terms of your investment, the quality of the education is far more important over the course of your career.
I took a poll at lunchtime: 5 providers
Everyone was very confident about their answer and the scoring was 3 no and 2 yes. I was shocked!
It is easy enough to find multiple sources, including the FDA, who refer to ASA as a blood thinner.
The term is ambiguous, and not even uniformly understood by nurses.
