  1. NP malpractice insurance
    Insurance thru my employers, and then NSO policy of my own. I have no doubt that my employers (well, one of them anyway) would leave me twisting in the wind if an issue occurred.

  2. Would you accept a position.....
    Good question! I suppose it would have its pros and cons, like any position. On the PRO side, you do not have to live up to expectations from previous NPs AND you have an opportunity to really...

  4. Seasoned FNP tell me the truth....
    $75K for your first year out of school (salary + signing bonus) is nothing to sneeze at. Especially since this office/practice is a known entity and you could really get into a much worse situation...

  6. Patient education
    Agreed. There is a fine line between shaming patients (how many times do hospitalized pts tell me they are "bad diabetics") versus sharing relevant information at the pt's level of understanding and...

  7. Patient education
    Depends. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. We can teach patients what they need to know to take care of themselves and to reduce their incidence do diabetes-related...

    I wish I had a good answer. I work with a hospitalist group and see their diabetic patients or others who require insulin drips during surgery. I am salaried and my number of patients varies so...

    Well...where do we factor in the element of self-responsibility? I treat pts with diabetes in the hospital. Yes, we try to provide care and do not deny meds for any diabetic. However, there is...

  11. Inpatient NPs - what is your patient load?
    I see inpatients on part of a specialty consult service. So we are called to see patients at various times throughout the shift and it varies a LOT from day to day. We do not have a limit on the...

  12. Negotiating contracts
    When I was a nursing student I learned an important lesson from a visitor in one of my patient's room: Never refer to yourself or your experience as "just" or "only" and I think the same applies to...

  18. Returning as NP after time out of field and have questions
    I don't think you're going to be at any disadvantage. You are licensed, you will have passed the certification exam, you've kept up with CME...you're no worse off than a recent grad and you can make...

  19. Primary care problem in specialty
    I wouldn't. I work in a specialty and I try really hard not to look at anything that is outside my area of expertise. I don't want to be liable for those things I don't normally do. I also do not...

  20. FNP in North Carolina
    Living/working in NC is a marital compromise for me. My husband has a great job he's been at for 15 years. I've been an NP for 2 years and we aren't moving. It is frustrating to be sure but I am...

  21. FNP in North Carolina
    You can be licensed in NC without a job, but you need a collaborating physician in order to be given "permission to practice" in NC from the BON and the Medical Board. Sucks. A lot.

    Doesn't matter WHY she's doing all this crap. The only thing that matters is that you get out with your sanity. No man - physician or not - is going to put his spoiled little princess in her place...

    Loyalty is a good thing. Keeping their commitment to move you to full time is also a good thing. Have a conversation with the doc (if that's who your employer is) something like this: I...

  25. NP with question about salary off - 80K too low?
    I am not familiar with current salaries in your area, but your wife should be. I believe it never hurts to counteroffer IF the offer is truly low.
