    DEA, should employer pay?

    My work pays for it. They have someone who manages this. I forgot mine was up for renewal and they sent an email reminding me to either pay it and submit it for reimbursement or authorize them to renew it for me . This does not come amount of my CME money.
  2. I don't but i do teach nursing clinical on occasion for a local college so I still find myself in the hospital in that function.

    PAs Do Not Like Us

    I work with a lot of PAs, and thankfully we are all supportive and acknowledge different training structure but similar function and universal goal of providing quality care that is found in EBP. The only guff I get is related to the fact we don't have to take re-certification exams. Just want to add the sentiment of others that we had multi-disciplinary educators in my program. A pharmacist from the pharmacology program taught our pharmacy class. My advanced path instructor also taught the course to med students. I came out well prepared. I have had a few students from chamberlain and purdue and was a little worried given their for profit structure and the reputation of churning out graduates, but students were great and well prepared . I think this inner fighting is in poor taste and is not helpful to advancing our profession.

    Dumb Newbie

    Good luck to you! I think it is common for nursing students to consider their clinical experience "unpaid RN" work. But to be honest, it's not even close. You have the patient's RN and your instructor watching over you like a hawk and typically you are taking on very little of the typical RN load and responsibility. I would highly recommend getting experience as a registered nurse. Typically you can work part time during most FNP programs. Good luck!

    Do not understand scheduling issue

    This is our scheduling practice where I work. We do not work on RVUs so the expectation is that Dr. 's can take patients off our schedule and they get to fill first. Thankfully they usually take complex patients that they know better and it makes more sense for them to see. We are still held to RVU goals and fill rates...but since it doesn't effect our pay right now (that is changing) that is the law of the land. My concern is that it will be hard to change the culture when our pay is RVU based in the future.

    is this a common thing with OVERTIME

    its bad business, not sure why they would do that
  8. Actually comfort care is EOL care, (which is my speciality) and i don't think you do from your post but asking family to educate on that just because they are in the health care field is unprofessional and inappropriate. most drs have very little training in pallative care so just because someone has a MD behind their name does not make them an appropriate 'teacher" . If you don't think you know enough go to conferences , seminiars and even trainings put on at work. and i ditto the advice....... no crying in front of co-workers.
  9. Rnis

    Question about shift differentials

    the differential is 2 for nights and 3.5 for weekends so on the weekends i make 5.5 in differentials for the night portion of my shift. (i work twelves) for the first four hours i make the pm differential.

    About PA's comments to RN

    absolutely I agree. I would never judge a profession as a whole by the poor behavior of one member of that group. I also agree that there is definitely a unique and valuable role for us all .
  11. Rnis

    add future employer on facebook?

    NO! it makes it easy for everyone you work with to find you and know your business
  12. Rnis

    Just a thought

    I think that is why i try not to take short cuts....i think its good to feel that pressure .
  13. Rnis

    What do I do? Roaches, no heat...

    ditto call social services
  14. Rnis

  15. Rnis

    Problems with therapy staff......?????
