  4. Psychiatric NP what can I do?
    Really not that big of a deal. I'm at a community clinic and the medical director handles that sort of thing routinely. Involuntary hold authority is also not that big of a deal. I've been seeing...

  8. what am I worth? negotiating…
    You're right Trauma - and that's ok if you're already making a good buck as a cardiologist but not so much if you're trying to earn more as an already underpaid NP. If we just compare our earnings to...

  9. what am I worth? negotiating…
    I feel it is a mistake to negotiate based on what the "average" pay for NPs in your area is because that serves to simply maintain the status quo - which is way too low! Besides, how do you find...

  10. Clinicals when you work Mon-Fri?
    I think the obvious answer is that if it is important to you to finish your NP program, you have to make adjustments to your work schedule. I quit my m-f day job (in nursing!!) and started working...
