  1. Northwestern University team claims to have found the cause of ALS
    I hope so too, but this isn't exactly news. This story is from 2011.

  2. Family outraged when NY Med broadcasts father's death
    Wow, I was thinking of similar stories but I had no idea it was the SAME hospital. What rank hypocrisy.

  3. The Story of Jahi Continues
    My thoughts exactly. There hasn't been any real break in this case for over a year. I'm also surprised she's held out as long as she has, but the family will do whatever they're gonna do. For people...

  4. Family outraged when NY Med broadcasts father's death
    I don't know the legalities. I know that if I or a loved one were in the hospital I wouldn't want a camera crew poking around or doctors giving them updates on my condition without my consent, even...

  5. Family outraged when NY Med broadcasts father's death
    I don't know the exact legal definition of news vs documentary. My understanding is that anything that happens in a public place is fair game. If you're injured on the street and a film crew captures...

  6. Suturing
    We had a suturing workshop in NP school but I didn't have an opportunity to practice the skill in clinicals. During my ER rotation they mostly used glue. In my workplace suturing doesn't come up.

  7. Family outraged when NY Med broadcasts father's death
    I find this story appalling too. Especially considering the many stories I've read of nurses who posted something foolish on their Facebook page or blog and lost their jobs as a result... Even when...

  8. Online Schools--Is it a "jungle out there"?
    I got my first bachelor's through an online school, which I was then able to use to get into an accelerated nursing program (I did science pre-reqs at a brick-and-mortar). My experience with them was...

  10. Physician Extender ???
    Why not? I am proud to use the term nurse and I always consider myself a nurse first and foremost in the way I approach and relate to a patient.

  11. First Job for New Grads
    My first job is in pediatric pulmonology. Pros: 1. an area where there's a lot of need (where I live has one of the highest rates of asthma in the country) and you can really see your work...

  12. Does any NP regret becoming one
    I don't regret becoming an NP but I sometimes regret my choice of specialty. I still feel that pediatrics is the best fit for me in terms of personality and aptitude, but I wish I had gone with a...

  13. NP starting salaries in the Capital region of NY
    As a new grad RN I interviewed for a job in Albany Medical Center and the starting salary for an RN was about 50k, so 80k for an NP does not surprise me.

  14. New NP feeling so out of place in new job
    I have been working as an NP for about a year and a half. What you feel is completely normal. For a good six months I felt like I was play-acting. I checked everything with the MD. Now I check maybe...

  15. What is the best NP job you have seen???
    There is no single best NP job. The best job is the one that's the best fit for you. Sometimes you have to see the opportunities and use your job as a platform to get to where you want to be. You may...

  16. NP in Specialty
    I started out in a specialty straight from school. I don't think you ever need to be afraid to apply for a job even if you don't perfectly match the stated requirements. You don't know what the...

  17. Here's Why the Student Loan Market Is Completely Insane
    Another issue I find is that colleges have no real incentive to be accountable with OUR money. We found out in the last semester of nursing school that we were paying a "student activity" fee that...

  20. Am I really a NP if I do laser hair removal?
    I think it's telling that they hired an NP for the position and are paying you well for it. It must mean they want your skill and knowledge level for the job. As long as the job is giving you...

  21. Adult-Gerontology NP versus Family NP
    I don't see any real advantage in doing AGNP over FNP, as I think the length of training is similar, maybe 1-2 extra semesters for FNP. I did PNP and I really am only interested in working with...

  22. Which specialty compensated the most financially?
    I think you are missing the point. You can choose any NP specialty and make a decent wage, provided that there are jobs available where you live and/or you are willing to move. I am a pediatric...

  23. Which specialty compensated the most financially?
    If a person is headed for foreclosure it's more a sign of poor money management than a failure to choose the right NP track. If you live above your means you will be headed for foreclosure regardless...

  25. Teen to remain in state custody, in Boston Children's Hospital
    It seems there's evidence that Justina's parents were PITA's and didn't exactly endear themselves to the healthcare team caring for their daughter. However, I don't see that as grounds for...
