I am an ACNP as well as a FNP.
Doc and I see pts in the office, and should they need admitted, doc or myself will follow them in the hospital.
We both, also come into ER and treat our pts should one arrive with a problem.
Additionally, he and I both (on the same night/day...never apart) work ER giving 12hrs coverage 1 weekend per month. We're also starting to work a few 8hr shifts during the week, after office hours.
As far as skills, I do anything and everything. Intubate, C-line, swanz, chest tube, and various centesis.
I do this without any supervision.
Well, correction. I would be permitted to do this w/o supervision. I do not perform peri-cardiocentesis, and rarely any other centesis w/o having doc there.
Even MD Terminator has something that freakes HIM out
