You're probably wondering why I have tax questions in August! I have an extension until October. My question is this - does anyone have any good tax deduction suggestions. I am kind of like an agency nurse but I work for the hospital but sign a 13 week contract each time. I don't know if I am eligible for some of the deductions that travellers are eligible for. Not sure who to go to for information. Wasn't really able to find anything when I "googled". Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Hello and Welcome
There are a couple threads on this subject as we speak. Someone is desiring to join Eastern/Western philosophies with their nurse practitioner. So do a search and you might be able to share ideas.
Good luck in all that you do. I wish merging the world of western medicine and eastern was a bit easier, but I really don't know what the job opportunities for nurses are. Good luck.
Not sure if you already have a Bachelor's degree in another field or not...if so, you can do a MSN program without going for the BSN first in many schools now.............
You will probably find more job opportunities on either coast...........
Good luck, the combination does work. Lived overseas in SE Asia.
Hi all. I am new to this forum. I am a National Board Certified Licensed Acupuncturist with an M.S. in oriental medicine, anticipating my first practice this coming Spring.
There are some colleges in the U.S. offering a "bridge program" to become an N.P. within two years if one has previously attained their Master's degree. I thought it would be neat to offer both western and eastern diagnosis and Tx. to my patients, allowing them to receive the best from both type medicines.
My main concern in becoming an N.P. is the following:
I fear that some aspects of the N.P. scope of practice might inhibit practice as an oriental health professional due to the possibility I might have to act under the somewhat strict protocols of the N.P. profession.
If an oriental Tx. or approach would seem to be better than the western one, I might be forced to act based on the constraints of the western model, or risk sanctions from regulatory bodies overseeing the N.P. arena. Can anyone elaborate on any of this?
Also, if the above circumstances would not come into conflict, would I be allowed to practice independently as an N.P. in my own oriental medical practice without prior hospital or other clinical, (employment), as an N.P?
Thank you very much for sharing any thoughts on this matter.

Hi Everyone, I am a new RN (Associates Degree) working on a med-surg unit. I love the work so far but got into nursing in the first place to somehow combine nursing/western medicine with acupuncture and other forms of holistic/complementary medicine. I am thinking of getting my MSN and becoming an ARNP. I assume that this is the best avenue for achieving what I want to do. Does anyone have any advice at all? Any tidbits of wisdom? Am I misguided? Thanks in advance!
