  1. Independent Contractor vs. Regular Employee?

    I am an independent contractor and have been for ~5 years now Sounds like they are trying to rip you off! you should make like $20/hr more as independent contractor... Just think of the vacation alone you won't get paid. As an independent contractor ...
  2. You might want to avoid this recruiting company

    And another thing.. we in the healthcare industry are one of the few who have people knocking on our door for our services, while other people are struggling every day and would LOVE to have any job, even if they are over qualified. Man it just ann...
  3. You might want to avoid this recruiting company

    I don't understand what you are complaining about? Sounds like you are on a high horse and consider yourself better then the recruiter.... I've talked to Delta lots of times and would not discount this company, and if you have never worked for them, ...
  4. Are there medications that you don't/won't write for?

    Since we are discussing. There is one drug I refuse to prescribe and thankfully have been able to mostly get around it. And that is the morning after pill. This is based on my own personal beliefs and I can't in good conscious prescribe it. I'm gl...
  5. Are there medications that you don't/won't write for?

    Why not HRT? (its not something I normally prescribe due to ER/UC work) but currently in Family practice. I recently prescribed it for a woman who had been on it before, and tapered off, and was complaining of multiple symptoms, hot flashes, insomni...
  6. Are there medications that you don't/won't write for?

    Yeah, true, every other person is bipolar or has anxiety! i wonder if insurances would cover "yoga" and relaxation seminars! I tend to be more conservative and holistic in my approach.. What a lot of people need probably is a vacation!:)
  7. Are there medications that you don't/won't write for?

    thanks, its good to hear other providers also use "I don't prescribe such and such" Like I said I work primarily UC/ED, so I don't prescribe a lot of chronic meds except for occ refills for people that can't get into their PCP. I also work in high ...
  8. I am a locums FNP working mainly ER/UC. Currently i'm in a family practice clinic but only for 1 month. They don't have a provider after me except for 1 day/week and they were lacking a provider for a few months before. It is a rural area with no ...
  9. Retail Clinic salaries

    Also these clinics only treat very basic things. I called once to see if i could get some prednisone and inhaler for my asthma and they are not allowed to treat that. It is basically very low skill use. I think it is a waste of our skills as NPs ...
  10. In-home NP Medicare Assessments

    This seems like very good pay. I'm an independent contractor and when a few companies tried to hire me for this job i don't remember it being that good. As well as they expected you to print ~20pages per patient and fax them back every day, all at ...
  11. NP to MD

    well.. just med school ist 4 yrs. If you are a NP you might have some of the pre-reqs done but def. do not need more then 1-2 years to do them. You could do them at a community college etc while you work as a NP. So you really then have 4 years ...
  12. NP to MD

    YUp, Got the books to study for the MCAT which i plan to take early 2012 and Apply May 2012. I always wanted to be a Doc and thought I would be satisfied as a NP. I am very satisfied as a FNP if it doesn't work out. Reasons: More knowledge. Peopl...
  13. How do you prescribe ABX in a retail clinic?

    "I will likely end up working in one of these clinics at some point, but will I compromise my clinical work ethic for the sake of a having a job?" I would recommend not working in a retail or UC clinic, if you want to practice evidence based medicine...
  14. Locum tenens nurse practitioner? Travel NP?

    Yes, i think i may have posted another more recent post on my travels. I have been doing locums now for 3 years, and have worked in MA, CA, NM, CO, TX, and i have FL license but haven't worked there yet. Yes, the locums co pd for my DEA $550 so tha...
  15. Passed the ANCC Family Nurse Practitioner exam!!

    I don't know what to tell you other then what I already posted... It's been 3.5 years since I took the exam and truthfully I don't remember much how I studied other then what I already posted. I wouldn't worry so much, you can only do the best you c...
