    I'm leaving my my first NP job in less than 2 weeks and in my contract I have to purchase tail coverage upon leaving. my employer pays 50%. It's around 6,000 and I have to pay 3,000. I didn't like this part of my contract when I first joined the practice but I didn't think I would be leaving after almost 2 years.

    I just took a new position and per my contract gave 60 days notice. I think that's common but I have heard of some practitioners giving 90-120 days.

    Insurance companies typically only pay for one/day. Some kids are on 6+ bolus feeds/day. Families would run out of bags in less than a week if they did this!
    I was talking about inpatient peds not homecare.

    when I was working inpatient peds I had parents ask me to remove their 9 month old and take him to the nursery because he was crying too much. I reminded them that their son is 9 months old, this is not a maternity floor and the room is actually their sons and they can go home if the crying is bothering them.

    I have had parents ask me to check their 13 yo daughter to see if she was still a virgin.

    My favorite is when parents do not want to pay for basic OTC items like nasal saline drops, aveeno cream, Claritin, etc and request prior auths through the pharmacy.

    Oh, dear HEAVENS. I hope you have found a new job! Seeing 48 patients in an 8-hour day is a recipe for making a mistake. There is an FQHC in our area that CONSTANTLY advertises for NPs "who can work in a fast-paced environment". A friend of mine from school worked in one of these revolving doors and clued me in. As soon as I see who is advertising, I close the ad window! Good luck finding a better -- and safer -- job.

    Update: I accepted a new position, gave my notice and will start my new job next month in a specialty area at a children's hospital near me.

    I worked almost 7 years of nightshift as a RN. I really miss it. I miss going to bed when everyone is off to work. I also miss food shopping at Giant overnight and have the store to myself.
    As a nurse practitioner I work days shift hours and after 2 years of it I still have a hard time. I hate going to bed before 1am and I can't stand getting up at 6am to do newborn rounds before heading into the office...LOL Its still a work in progress. I function better at night and I'm grumpy before 11am at work lol.
    I'm also a Leo but I have always been a natural night owl since I was child. In the summers I use stay up all night and go to bed when my parents went to work...hehe ...

    I could be wrong but I think all online nursing schools do not accept students, that hold licenses, in certain states (e.g. NC) unless the school is in that said state. But I heard a way to get around that is to get a license in another state nearby and you may have to do clinical in that state. I'm not 100% sure about this but I have heard this from a few people. Look into it...hope this helps.

    Do the NursingCAS application and the supplemental application have to be submitted at the same time?

    I did the same thing while in grad school. I changed jobs twice ( with some overlap, went FT at new job and stayed per diem at old one for several months before quitting) to fit my school schedule and clinicals. I had no problem getting NP job offers at the time.

    I'm a PNP and i have been seeing a lot of NNP positions in my area. There are more NNP job postings than PNP that i have seen lately.

    What I use to do was if it was continuous feeds I would change the bag every 24 hours. If it was bolus feeds I would put up a new bag with each bolus and throw the old one out.
