  1. PMHNP practice

    My husband had a new patient specialist appointment via telemedicine last month. I looked at his EOB and Medicare approved a whopping $54 for the visit, even though the CMS website claims "These visits are considered the same as in-person visits and ...
  2. Do you have your own malpractice insurance?

    I have Proliability. They are usually responsive to any requests or concerns I have.
  3. FNP job search gone bad

    Maybe this article in Medical Economics will give you some inspiration for other states to look at. If the state is short of PCPs, it might be a good place to look for a job as an FNP.
  4. On line NP or On-campus Np? (MA)

    I cannot tell you how many people I know who regretted doing online programs, because they were required to find their own preceptors. They were enormously stressed, and some had to take a semester off because they could not find a preceptor. If you ...
  5. Adding second CRNP specialty in Pennsylvania

    As far as I know, the Commonwealth does not have a deadline to obtain licensure for a second specialty. It all depends on whether you are working in that specialty or not. If you're working in the specialty, I would definitely get the licensure done....
  6. Anyone take the new version of PMHNP ANCC test?

    Did you look at the new test content outline? It is rather different from the old test content outline. One of the biggest changes was that the "Professional Role and Polices" questions have been de-emphasized. I looked on the website, and it looks l...
  7. Changes to ANCC PMHNP-BC Dec.16th?

    They cannot do this. This is how they test new questions to determine if they will be placed in the test bank for the actual test (that counts toward your score). They get a lot of useful statistics about new questions this way. It could be disastrou...
  8. Malpractice Insurance Co. Recommendations

    I have been with ProLiability for the last 8 years or so, but their customer service has gotten pretty unresponsive, which is aggravating. Anyone have a good experience with other NP malpractice insurers? Thanks!
  9. Streamlined Adult Gerontology Acute Care NP Post-Graduate

    I am familiar with this program, although I have not gone through it. I know several people who completed it while working full-time. (Your workplace is also your clinical site, which works out nicely.) They all passed their boards with no problems. ...
  10. Who wants to hire a graduate nurse at 55?

    I graduated nursing school at age 52. When I looked for a job as a new graduate BSN, I absolutely encountered age discrimination. (I will not go into the details.) It was very discouraging. I did eventually find that long-term care and sub-acute reha...

    I found the ANCC online questions to be the best prep, along with reading "Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Review and Resource Manual, 4th Edition" (the "purple book"). I know others found Pocket Prep helpful, but a lot of the questions ...
  12. Glad to be of service! ?
  13. PhD nurses educating DNP students

    Agree with this. I have been looking for a DNP program that will make me a better clinician. I want to take courses like super-advanced pharmacology and patho, advanced clinical decision-making, etc. I'm still looking... If anyone knows of such a DNP...
  14. Don't call me a "physician extender". It makes NPs sound like medical Hamburger Helper! ? I will not even respond to a job ad that uses that term. It speaks volumes about the culture of the employer if they think of NPs and PAs as "physician extender...
  15. What's the least saturated specialty in APRN?

    That is literally one of the saddest things I have ever read on AN, and I have been here for over 10 years. ?
