  6. How do we prevent Nurse Practitioners from undervaluing themselves?

    This right here is excellent information! As a new grad, I would have loved a class on healthcare economics. With programs ever changing, perhaps the next generation will have that as a mandatory class. It is one thing to log your cases in with ...
  7. Secured a job on LinkedIn

    As a NP, is it worth the time? Do NP’s normally secure employment via this route or is it more of a place for humble bragging; ideal for non healthcare industries?
  8. As a new NP, did you do a residency program?

  14. Insulin drips patients on L&D

    I feel as if your institution has their I's dotted and T's crossed.
  15. Insulin drips patients on L&D

    Most of our patients tend to be early second trimester patients. This demographic of patient is so new to us we don't have a policy, more less healthstreams and a competency checklist. Staffing is a mess, to the point where they know we are supposed ...
