  2. Strange requests from patients
    You took the words out of my mouth. "I'm sorry, Ms. Patient, but vaginas do not have hair". Wonder what the patient would have responded?

  3. Post master's ?
    Every post-master's program I have looked at (different specialties, but same idea as yours) requires you to do all the ANCC-required hours of clinicals (i.e., 500 hours). You also have to meet all...

  5. Drexel Ace what they won't tell you
    Do they still require an 80 average for passing courses, or have they changed that? Everyone I have known who went to Drexel's ACE program complained about the intense pressure. All accelerated...

  6. New grade RN vs Experienced RN?
    You mentioned long-term-care, and that may be a way to get your foot in the door (again). Do LTC for a year and then you will magically have "fresh" RN experience. Good luck!

  7. Meanwhile at the pain clinic...(is it really worth it?!)
    I think I would have left when the owners stopped having someone accompany people to the bathroom because they were losing too many patients that way! You have some experience now; find a better job...

  8. Is employer-provided malpractice enough coverage?
    Spend the bucks and cover yourself, even if your employer has a policy that covers you. My former professor, both an attorney and a nurse, always told us, "When the time is right, their insurance...

  9. NY post slams NPs
    Oh, the irony of a newspaper that reprints gossip as gospel telling us that NPs don't produce outcomes as good as MDs and DOs. LOL!

  10. New NP insecurities
    I like the Johns Hopkins antibiotics app a lot, because it is constantly updated and a very quick reference. Johns Hopkins Guides: Antibiotic (ABX), HIV, Diabetes & Psychiatry Whoever told you you...

  11. ESRD Patients in the PCP Office
    Thanks so much for this article. My biggest frustration as a primary care NP in treating ESRD patients is that once they are on dialysis, the nephrologists stop communicating with us. A note every 6...

  12. Post Master's Certificates?
    Just a follow-up quote from UCSF's post-master's webpage: "Post-master's programs cannot be taken through on-line or distance learning options."

  13. Question for those of you who precept NP students
    I precept as well. I think it is important that we let the school's instructors know about our concerns and give some concrete suggestions for improvement. My current student is very smart and works...

  15. No time for ethical dilemmas
    Not sure what you are looking for, but one of the thorniest problems for me (primary care) is telling someone they can't drive and then reporting them to the DMV. I know that many of my patients are...

  16. Pharmaceutical reps in the clinic
    My former primary care practice doc allowed reps to bring lunch and dinner. I regarded them as aggressive parasites. One of the worst was the Invokana salesman who came in 2-3 times a week, insisting...

  18. Malpractice Insurance
    Have you checked proliability.com? They used to be Marsh, then Liberty Mutual; I think it is still Liberty Mutual with a slightly different name. I don't practice in the same specialty as you, but...

  19. DOT focused clinic
    I am sure you are aware that there were regulation changes in 2014. The new rules put a lot more liability on the DOT examiner. I know quite a few NPs and doctors who stopped doing DOT physicals once...

  20. NP full scope/independent speculation
    Nebraska became the 20th state as of yesterday. I agree that hooking into the AANP network is the best way to keep up with this issue. I am hopeful that my state (NJ) will eventually pass...

    Zenman, do you practice as a PMHNP now? If so, did you feel like your program prepared you (as well as any of them can prepare us for actual practice, that is!).
