  4. For Level2Trauma; Chris-FNP

  5. How much do you make?
    92K!!! That sounds a little fishy. NOT THAT I DON'T BELIEVE YOU!!! However, family practice doctors make around 100-150K. Something seems a little odd here. How the heck can an institution...

  8. RNs versus NPs?
    Navy Nurse, I agree with you. I wasn't really addressing Ph.D. Nurses in particular because they do tend to be researchers. I also agree that positional respect is a lot easier to earn than what...

  12. Is it me...or has the internet made people lazier?

  13. RNs versus NPs?
    I have a feeling that some of this RN versus NP stuff has to do with job satisfaction. If your an RN, and love your job, you probably don't have any ill feelings towards NPs (even the NPs that went...
