  1. Help! How to get an interview with Humana!

    I'd love to know the same thing! I'm in the same boat--qualified for the position, but I can't get an interview!
  2. Any nurse bloggers?

    I'm a nurse blogger :) I don't think I'm allowed to post my blog, but feel free to PM me.
  3. Opinions on Arcadia Home Care

    Does anyone work for this home care agency? Can you share your experience? The position I'm considering is a Clinical Services Supervisor role. Thank you!
  4. Experienced nurse- Career Advice

    Hello everyone! I'm looking for some feedback on what is an extremely difficult career decision for me. I've been working as a Medicare surveyor in my specialty area (home health and hospice) for the past 3 years. I absolutely love my job! Before...
  5. Breaking Free From Nursing

    I've been a nurse for almost 8 years. That's not long in the grand scheme of things, but it's long enough to have experienced this profession. I've been known to say, "One of the greatest things about nursing is that there are so many different way...
  6. Tampa Bay area- Salary

    I'm curious about the low salary offers I've received in the Tampa bay area. I'm relocating from another state and I expected the pay to be a bit lower, but some of the offers I've received are downright shocking. I'm a master's-prepared nurse look...
  7. Just how do we find preceptors?

    I would never feel comfortable asking my family physician to help with a preceptor placement. It's embarrassing that this is happening in the NP field and it gives physicians a legitimate reason to question the quality of care provided by NPs. This...
  8. What is your opinion on getting the flu shot?

    Even "preservative-free" flu shots are full of toxins. Thimersol is not the only concern. Check out this link to learn what is really in a flu vaccine: Vaccine Ingredients Calculator As far as effectiveness of the flu shot, there have been no co...
  9. Fraud

    I work for the government as a health care surveyor. Unfortunately, CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) turns a blind eye to fraud. We do have avenues of reporting fraud to the OIG, but CMS actively encourages us not to get too involve...
  10. Hello fellow nurse entrepreneurs! I've recently switched my business site to a self-hosted site and I am so lost!!! Does anyone have a recommendation for a reasonably priced Wordpress site developer? Thanks!
  11. Can a nurse start a hospice?

    Hello! I work for the government and hospice agencies are one of the provider types that I'm responsible for surveying (regulating). Hospice is highly regulated and as stated above, you would not be able to work independently, even as an NP. There...
  12. Hi Tiffany! I think you should first get focused in exactly what your goals are. It won't help you to randomly get certifications if you don't know what you want to do with it. They are many ways to be a nurse "in business". Before you spend mone...
  13. Any holistic/integrative NPs?

    Are there any NPs here that practice in a holistic/integrative/alternative medicine setting? I'm thinking about doing a post-master's FNP program, but I'm wondering about the feasibility of getting a job that allows practice with an alternative medi...
  14. Even if you have RN experience by the time that you graduate as an NP, that does not completely prepare you to be a fully functioning NP upon graduation. The role of the NP is much different from that of the RN. I believe you would be better served...
  15. My understanding is that an independent nurse contractor is able to bill Medicare/Medicaid for services. A self-employed nurse may be an independent nurse contractor or not, depending on what services they are offering and if they want to or are abl...
