NP working with Surgical Residents

by Aubrey Little Aubrey Little (New) New

Hi all!

I am a Vascular Surgery NP working at a teaching hospital with a residency program within our practice. I do a little bit of everything in my role from inpatient care, consults, outpatient clinic, basically whatever the service needs other than operating. I am not a first assist or working in the O.R. at all and do not have any desire to do so. I am interested in hearing other NPs experience with working on a resident team, how they are utilized as an NP, how they work with the residents, what is the dynamic on your team between the residents, NP, and attendings?



Has 9 years experience.

I worked inpatient with residents. I liked it. At first they didn't understand our role but eventually we got used to each other. I prefer teaching services to be honest.
