SnowShoeRN has 10 years experience and specializes in Family Medicine, Tele/Cardiac, Camp.

Once, during an ice storm, I snowshoed to work. I also feel like I should mention that I'm bisexual. Not a lot of queer female nurses, I've found out. So I want to be visible to those who are. :) Represent. And that's about all you need to know about me.

  1. CVS Minute Clinic interview process

    I work for CVS MinuteClinic and would be happy to answer any questions you have! I love it there. Private message me for more info. :)
  2. New grad NP job offer- questions

    Hmm. Tricky. I did my program in Boston and as hard as it was for me to find a position in the city (I ended up having to move for my 1st job), I don't think I would have accepted a position with a new practice that wasn't also heavy on the orientati...
  3. Future plans versus the unexpected future

    Oh so very constantly. And it's been wonderful. I actually found my "here-is-where-I-will-be-in-10-years" list that I made when I graduated from nursing school 11 years ago. According to that list, I was going to get a ton of experience in ER nursing...
  4. I can't advise you from a legal standpoint, but I would personally feel very uncomfortable doing that. At my last practice, we would get drug authorization forms come in and my my supervising MD was adamantly AGAINST us signing for each other. She wa...
  5. Info needed on Childhood obesity

    Based on the federal definition of health care provider shouldn't you be interviewing MD's, DO's, PA's, NP's, CNM's, etc? If so, I'd contact pediatricians, PNP's, pediatric social workers, and pediatric psychologists in your area. Not that RN's opini...
  6. Want to start Botox injections

    To OP, as I'm sure you're aware there are many non-cosmetic uses for Botox as well. Don't know if this is something you might be interested in doing, but you could always consider offering non-cosmetic services as well. Best of luck. :) An evidence-b...
  7. Want to start Botox injections

    Have you tried contacting derm or costmetic surgery practices in your area? You may be able to find a derm MD who would be willing to help you out...
  8. Why Bother Studying Workplace Bullying?

    I certainly think there is a place for your work, but I think that you need to be very careful with how your define certain things. While the behaviors that one typically encounters with lateral violence (gossiping, intimidation, gas lighting, whatev...
  9. First NP job-toxic work environment vs. newbie blues

    Loan repayment is a good reason to stay a FQHC, but keep in mind that just because you apply doesn't mean you'll get it. I was told when I interviewed that everyone who applies, has gotten it. Well, after doing a little more research I found out that...
  10. First NP job-toxic work environment vs. newbie blues

    Your job sounds uncannily like the place I just left. Right down to the insanely high turnover. After working in a similar practice for about 9 months, my biggest takeaway was that I went into it without asking the right questions and meeting the ri...
  11. Maternity Question: Seizures

    Are you asking this looking for medical advice? Homework assignment? What's the context of the question? What's the patient's seizure history? Circumstances of the birth? Medication involved? Duration? Patient's history? etc? I would need more inform...
  12. DEA number

    I got mine in less than a week, but I've really heard anything between 1 to 6 weeks. :/ Sorry if that's not really helpful. I hope you get it soon.
  13. I agree Laura. Thank you.
  14. I'm hoping that the nausea never progresses to vomiting! That would be awesome. And of course that it's free from complications. Thanks for your response and well wishes. :)
  15. Thank you! Me too! Fingers crossed. :)
