  9. Interesting times in psych
    As an ANP I saw my job as as seeing the coughs, sniffles, and chronic conditions to free up the MD for the more complicated Pt.s. That's why I was being paid less. Otherwise, why employ an MD? If we...

  11. NP to DNP, but in a different discipline.
    I'm not sure there is proper communication. I am an ANP. I want to get a psych cert but also get a DNP while I am at it. Most programs do not allow this as far as I know.

  14. Just a vent!!!
    Your skills are far too valuable to worry about cat fighting chocolate covered spiders. Go elsewhere, living well is the best revenge. Good luck.

  24. NP working in a non-provider role
    If they are willing to pay $250k? I'd suck it up for that. That and payoff student loans. Bank the money for awhile and in the meantime work as water to wear away the ignorance.
