    Your Local Pharmacist Can Now Prescribe Paxlovid To Treat COVID-19

    Regardless of knowledge or training, pharmacists (most) don't have access to the information needed to safely prescribe the medication, especially in those most at risk and thus at highest need of it.

    Your Local Pharmacist Can Now Prescribe Paxlovid To Treat COVID-19

    We are already seeing this with urgent and retail care here. Patient visits the facility. Gets diagnosed. They either 1. “recommend” Paxlovid but tell the patient to “call your PCP” to get it or, even worse, 2. Prescribe it and tell patient to “call ...

    Your Local Pharmacist Can Now Prescribe Paxlovid To Treat COVID-19

    Great, now on top of everything else, I need to also tell patients not to take a drug the pharmacist prescribes. I can't even believe how this drug got emergency approval let alone how it got to bend the rules because most prescribers won't prescribe...

    Fired From First NP Job: Struggling Emotionally

    To be honest, as someone who has owned a practice and has hired both physician and NP/PAs, there is more than just those three possibilities. 1.) I have hired experienced providers to plug directly into a gap in the schedule/roster (from a provi...

    Fired From First NP Job: Struggling Emotionally

    I am sure it stings. I still vividly remember the first job I was fired from at age 13 and a half. It has shaped my work ethic my whole life but it also still stings a bit. My advice would be that any job you take as an NP is going to be less c...

    Fired From First NP Job: Struggling Emotionally

    Primary care can be extremely difficult especially when you don't know any of the patients. At the end of the day, if you were comfortable seeing most of the patients, then it was goign to be a tough and dangerous road for you at that practice....

    Fired From First NP Job: Struggling Emotionally

    What kind of clinic was it? Did you feel comfortable with the clinical role you were in (seeing and taking care of patients)? Did they allow you to start with a reasonable patient load (like 1 patient an hour)? Did you have anyone to help support you...

    How did you feel in those 10 days of working? Did you feel like you were equipped to do the job?

    Degree over Experience?

    I've never understood why, in nursing, education and experience get thought of/discussed as mutually exclusive things. It's frustrating to see experienced nurses with less formal education belittle less experience nurses with more formal education an...

    Newbie Questions About NP Career

    I can answer on the outpatient side as that's where I have spent most of my career. I started in a small independent internal medicine practice, became a partner in that practice, and then merged the practice with a big hospital system. Over my...

    RN Jobs That Do Not Require Covid Vaccine

    A better comparison sentiment would be going into nursing if you had an incapacitating phobia about blood or bodily fluids.

    Does the federal Covid mandates apply to homecare nurses?

    It's actually a funny little satire article. I hope you didn't share it as something serious though.
  13. I don’t disagree that there is an important role for continued post marketing and real world data analysis regarding vaccine safety in all populations in order to reduce risk for everyone receiving the vaccine. Now that we have availability of all th...

    Vaccination Mandating

    Alcoholism and cirrhosis are illnesses. They are not a "choice" (and if you think they are you should either retire or have your license pulled). They can be treated but there is no vaccine to prevent it.
