  1. PMHNP and telepsych

    Hello all, I have a question regarding telepsych - with telepsych, can I, as the practitioner, be the one at the remote location? For example, my SO travels a little over 50% of the year for work and once I graduate I would love to join him. However...
  2. Viva, I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I am glad that hospice was able to help with his, and your, pain.
  3. I have been doing psych and substance abuse for a few years now, but have only just now seen my first legit, bad case of DT's. This poor patient was on a medical floor first and they couldn't handle her so they sent her down to us. It has been severa...
  4. USA PMHNP Fall 2016

    Hello, Is anyone here starting University of South Alabama's MSN PMHNP program in August? I am hoping to connect with some other students. I am currently waiting to hear back from a school closer to me, but I am going to complete at least my 1st sem...
  5. 6/26 WILTW: Littlefinger's smirk makes me feel violated

    My provider has been out of town last week and this upcoming week, so I learned just how much I am able to accomplish when I am not interrupted every 15 minutes trying to get vitals, answer questions, etc. However, it also puts more pressure on me as...
  6. Haha, I lived in Nashville for a while where eating Sonic ice was an every day thing for people. I have never seen people go to a "restaurant" and just ask for ice chips. It is like a cult thing down there! I'm glad you figured it out too! Probably s...
  7. I learned this week that when you have iron deficiency anemia, you can crave ice chips. I had a detox patient ask me to get her level tested and when I asked her why she thought it was off she stated that she has been craving ice chips lately. For he...
  8. 5/01 WILTW: Margaritas and Oral Thrush

    I read these every week (and love them!) and finally decided to join the conversations :) I learned that when Medicaid insurance changes in your state it wreaks havoc for patients and staff alike. I have argued more with insurance companies in the la...
  9. How do you get to Blue from the mobile app?

    I'm so sorry to hear.
  10. Taking a pay cut to go to day shift?

    I did essentially the same thing - went from working 3 12hr night shifts, EOW/H, etc to a Mon-Thur 10 hour a day job. No weekends, no holidays, no call. I took a $5/hour pay cut. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty rough on the wallet at first, but I j...
  11. AANP 2015 Salary Survey Results

    I'm not sure where you are located, but I can tell you that PMHNP's at my jobs make between 80,000-100,000. I am in the Midwest.
  12. First Choice Nurse; Second ???

    Have enough money to travel to every National Park and go backpacking/camping/hiking. So...come on lottery win!
  13. What's the meanest thing a patient has said to you?

    Just yesterday my patient told me multiple times all the reasons I was going to hell. For one, he knows that I am fornicating and that is a sin (I live and work in a small town - he says he saw my boyfriend and I at a store holding hands, so obviousl...
  14. What's the meanest thing a patient has said to you?

    (disclaimer - I work psych, so I get insulted every day pretty much). Just today a dad of a patient got upset that I wouldn't refill his kid's meds because she hadn't shown up for her last 6 appointments (she is underage so it is his responsibility) ...
  15. Open mouth, insert foot...

    I did the same thing as a previous poster - in 8th grade science, students all had to read paragraphs from the book and my paragraphs had the word "organism" in it. Dang if I didn't say "orgasm". I kid you not, my teacher went through the rest of the...
