  1. Are online ANP degrees destroying our credibility?
    One dichotomy that has occurred to me is your embrace of DE and your Humanist style (is that fair to say of a shaman? Absolutely no mockery intended, serious). You of all people have to appreciate...

  2. Are online ANP degrees destroying our credibility?
    I love going 'round with zenman here and SDN, he's a fixture and has the experience to back it up. I too can disagree, but I have a feeling he'll be the one I hunt down for help when I finally lose...

    Amen to this thread. I ended up in some fortunate situations as a student, but there was some real stressful moments trying to get a site lined up. Our "Consensus Model" should include a little...

  4. NPs practicing as DRs
    Trolling in its finest sense. Short, nonsensical posts, with subtle "bait" to incite the desired response. Make no mistake, I appreciate good trolling, even when I am the target. How can I best...

  5. How to prepare for NP school??
    More than anything else, understand what a differential diagnosis is. This was something that tripped up many of my colleagues, regardless of years of RN experience. This is a new skill set for RNs....

  6. NPs practicing as DRs
    No, you are not. You are NPs with additional coursework in systems leadership, research utilization, health policy, etc. I support your right to exist. Your extra coursework no more makes you my...

    Deferential respect: "they paid obeisance to the prince". A gesture expressing deferential respect, such as a bow or curtsy. "Bow to your Sensei!" =]

  8. NPs practicing as DRs
    I just made the decision to renew my AANP membership. Part of it is the benefit angle, i.e. I can renew at student rate, discount on my cert (if I do AANP instead of/along with ANCC), etc. My...

  9. Retail Clinic salaries
    Legally, I don't know, but as a condition of employment? And working with the sure knowledge the "clinic" will NOT back you up if you deviate form said algorithm? I would definitely be wary.

  10. NPs practicing as DRs
    I will say it again and again: in the end, it is the State Board of Nursing who will decide what degree is needed to be a NP in your state. That is where this battle can be fought (for those of us...

  12. Just saying no to drugs.
    Tough call, and clearly a far cry from someone wanting narcotics. I like your invitation to provide you with some supportive evidence. This is the example of going out of your way for a colleague...

    The powers-to-be in academia are leaning heavily on the state BONs to secure DNP dominance and the destruction of the MSN-educated NP. The Consesus Model is an early move in this war. SInce the...

    This is probable the single best indictment of online NP education that I have seen. I'm not singling you out by any means. As a matter of fact, if your school actually describes the tests in this...

  17. Is it wise to take graduate Patho and Pharmacology in the same semester?
    At our level, patho and pharm should benefit eachother, not detract. Proper prescribing of drugs requires a mastery of the underlying pathology, and learning the drugs is no different. Especially...

    Such a love-hate thing with that book, some love it and some (like me) hate it. I found my undergrad text (Lehne) to be more in depth and detailed (and thus useful) than Lip, and about equal to other...
