  1. Nurse practitioner job market in Detroit area?
    Thanks, I did look up hospital websites but there were very few listings for NP, let alone pediatric NP. I would even consider doing bedside nursing but I'd probably have to take a 40% pay cut...

  2. How many ARNPs get administrative time?
    In the beginning when I started this job my patient load was lighter and I had plenty of time to catch up on charting. Now my load has gotten heavier so I am perpetually behind. Also on of the main...

  3. Nurse practitioner job market in Detroit area?
    I am originally from MI and I would like to move back to the area (being able to buy a house for <$200K is mighty attractive). However, the job listings I see for NP's seem slim compared to other...

  4. What Job Boards Do You Use
    I also found my job through indeed.com. I have also found that they give the most relevant search results. If I put "pediatric nurse practitioner" in quotes I only get job listings for PNP's, while...

  5. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    If you'd like to see NP education more similar to MD education, then where do you draw the line? What should be included, what shouldn't be included? All the premed requirements? All the med school...

  6. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    It's a fine line here. What level of training or education do you need to provide quality healthcare? What should be the scope of practice for an NP vs PA vs MD? Can anyone learn to do anything...

  7. Study ties home births to higher infant death rates
    I'd like to see a study that actually compares apples to apples. Low-risk, planned homebirths with a licensed midwife vs low-risk, planned hospital births with a licensed midwife.

  8. Advanced Nursing Lacking "Medical Science"
    This. I have worked my way through embryology, histology and biochemistry textbooks on my own -- not because they were a requirement for my program but because I felt I needed this to broaden and...

  10. How did you land your first NP job?
    My employer contacted me through indeed.com and asked me to come for an interview. I started out part time and went to full time after 6 months. Now I run my own office! (We just opened a satellite...

  11. what am I worth? negotiating…
    Start by keeping a spreadsheet of all your billing codes each day. Then do research to find out how much insurances pay for those codes. Then you have a sense of how much revenue you are generating.

  12. How many patients are you expected to see daily?
    How do you fit charting into your day if you're seeing 4-5 patients an hour? I see far fewer than that and I'm always playing catch-up.

    I was invited to join sigma theta tau in nursing school. I paid dues the first year as a student. I didn't find it made a difference one way or the other during my job search, and didn't feel the...

  15. Faces of the Boom: Nurses from Philippines give boost to Oil Patch health care
    That would be a concern for the international nurses's association. However, I think the national advocacy groups for nurses such as ANA, etc., are primarily concerned about legislation that affects...

  16. Faces of the Boom: Nurses from Philippines give boost to Oil Patch health care
    I think government-subsidized nurse residencies is the way to go. If hospitals would be reimbursed for the cost of training new grads, more positions would open up and there would be less need to...

  17. Requiring Bedside Experience for NP
    I think it's similar to the question of whether you need CNA experience to become an RN, or paramedic experience to work in an ER. Sure, it's helpful, and those who go into school with that...

  21. Faces of the Boom: Nurses from Philippines give boost to Oil Patch health care
    I agree that the plight of new grads is not the hospital's problem, nor is ND responsible for training new grads for the rest of the country. However, I think that as nurses our foremost priority...

  22. Most topics here non-clinical knowledge ones
    I think it just reflects the nature of social message boards. It is quicker to dash off a post about the co-worker that annoys you than to write a quality article on a patient care or pathophys...
