Hello. 

I am a practicing nurse practitioner in family medicine. I was just wondering, is there any live chat? applications? or etc;  Where I can connect to other providers and bring scenarios about and get speedy responses. Sometimes I just want to connect with other providers scenario based. Is there any chat groups or anything like such someone can recommend?

Thank you

The only suggestion I can think of would be to connect with NP's in your area such as a local professional group and exchange contact information.  For example, in my area we have SANAP.org (the website is temporarily down for the next 7-10 days).

I second the state organization. 

Also, we have a large APP (advanced practice provider) group so we have group texts all day some days. 

Our state organization also has a mentor program for the first year after licensure and you are matched with an experienced NP who works in a similar environment.

Are you a credible source? Add your Credentials, Experience, etc.

have you ever used the app Figure1? It is sort of like a facebook meets instagram but for medical/healthcare professionals to share interesting cases and also discuss best practices.

Thanks. I am not sure if we have a mentorship program ; but I will ask around and try to get connected to organizations, no problem.

Not  a bad suggestion will see where I can find organizations that support. 

Thanks

I usually ask questions here.  But no matter where you ask, you will get harassed for asking questions just like in nursing school.

What can we help with - be glad to help you....
