  1. Anyone do an online PMHNP Post-Master's?
    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!).

    What Juan said. For example, I am an Adult-Gero Primary Care NP. I am thinking about going back for my Psychiatric Mental Health NP. I would do this as a post-Master's option, rather than having to...

  7. Do you perform the Epley maneuver?
    Yes. I also give my patients a hand-out with home exercises. I do ask them if they have recently eaten before I do the maneuver. Have an empty trash basket handy if they say yes! :eek:

  8. Decent new grad pay
    My first NP job only paid a few dollars more per hour than the RN job I had. But the RN job required me to work nights and weekends. And autonomy? I can't describe how important that is to me. I had...

  9. More work, no pay increase..
    That may be true, but pressure is also a great way to make mistakes because you now have to see more patients each day. And then get thrown under the bus for making the mistake.

    At my practice, it is my problem. I am expected to code and document in such a way that the documentation supports the coding in the event of an audit. If I bill a 99215, I have to have the...

  11. NP's: do you give some patients your cell number?
    I give my phone # to certain carefully-selected patients. I haven't had anyone abuse the privilege yet. I also like to text with patients. It's especially helpful when I am doing something like...

  12. Productivity pay question
    If I understand you correctly, the $16/patient is all you will earn on each patient; there is no base + productivity payment, correct? If so, that $16 seems low to me. And as an aside, I think they...

  13. if I want to get into mental health should I become a psych nurse?
    Just remember that as a psych NP, you will be able to diagnose and treat, including prescribing medications. An MSW cannot prescribe. Both roles are important, but they are very different.

  14. Why did you become an NP?
    Why did you become an APN?How long have you been an APN? 2+ years as APN, in primary care. Became an APN because I love learning all things medical and knew I had what it took to work with...

  15. Is a FNP working for a Psychiatrist legal ??
    I would not take the psych job; you really would be practicing outside your scope of practice and training. The quotations from the Texas BON regulations make that pretty clear. Just think what would...

  17. What should EVERY nurse know about Dialysis
    OK -- dumb question time. What is the difference between the "arterial" and "venous" needle in an AV fistula, and which is which? I find this mighty confusing, because the two cannulation sites are...

  18. New Jersey: Time to receive APN license?
    All I can say is, submit your materials as soon as possible and stay on top of them! The squeaky wheel gets the grease at the BON. I try to have as little as possible to do with that agency! It took...

  20. Give regular insulin 30 units every am?
    I would hold it, too. BG of 70 and you're supposed to give 30 units of regular insulin 2 hours before breakfast? That patient will crash HARD. That new nurse is thinking critically. :)

  21. starting a new job before or after i take my board?
    Sounds good, as long as the doc is immediately responsive. As a new NP right off of orientation, I would have been pooping myself if I were alone. LOL I really leaned heavily on the other NPs for the...
