  1. Did you feel ready to practice upon graduation?

    I love this answer.
  2. The economics of PA vs. NP

    Your IMAGINATION is not the same as reality. Just because you "imagine" students graduating today can't place a spinal, epidural or central line does not make it true. But you stay in your little bubble and keep putting out information from your "i...
  3. The economics of PA vs. NP

    You may want to read my post again. Nowhere did I even remotely say that students are competent after meeting the "minimum standards". Do you have to make things up? You call this an adult conversation?
  4. NBCRNA and the AANA... WOW!

    They are separate now. NBCRNA has hindered and hurt our profession.
  5. The economics of PA vs. NP

    You can't graduate unless you have the minimum spinals, epidurals and central lines. You are way wrong assuming physician education is somehow better, it's not. In any case, I'm done with you. Hopefully readers will see through your blather.
  6. The economics of PA vs. NP

    Your comments are telling. You "HAD to work alone out of school"? You were graduated without knowing how to do central lines and spinals? Seriously? A spinal is such a basic part of our practice that I fail to see how your program to fail you s...
  7. The economics of PA vs. NP

    Agreed. No reason for PAs to not have independent practice as well. We need to get over the NP vs PA crap. There is no functional difference. I've found the FP physicians, NPs and PAs are pretty much interchangeable for the most part. It's not th...
  8. The economics of PA vs. NP

    I have no words. We a truly our own worst enemy. You realize that the AANA has also come out with a statement about how derogatory the term mid level is? I'm sorry your program was subpar but mine and many others were not. I'm sorry you felt y...
  9. The economics of PA vs. NP

    In 1965, one of these leaders, Loretta Ford, partnered with a physician, Henry Silver, to create the very first training program for Nurse Practitioners. Their program, offered at the University of Colorado, focused on family health, disease preventi...
  10. Can Acute Care Adult-Geri NP work in the ER/ ICU?

    You are right. My bad.
  11. The economics of PA vs. NP

    All the NP organizations came out literally YEARS ago against the term "midlevel"? I push back every time I hear it. I don't agree that PAs are mid levels either. They do function independently, they just need xx number of chart reviews.
  12. Can Acute Care Adult-Geri NP work in the ER/ ICU?

    You may want to read my post again. Are you trying to put words in my mouth? Did anywhere in my post I even remotely say that ACNP can be in the ED? 1. ACNP can't cover ED SOLO 2. ACNP can't take the ENP board certification exam. Any other...
  13. Which States have the most Independent CRNA Scope of Practice?

    That map is not entirely accurate. Take Texas for instance, very restrictive. You need a physician to "delegate" providing anesthesia before you can do it. Have fun getting prescriptive authority. Same with MS, AL and GA. So while you may not ne...
  14. The economics of PA vs. NP

    Nice insult. This is where the problem lays. Calling us "midlevel".
  15. FNP- Urgent Care Courses/Training Question

    There are quite a few EM residency programs or even ENP programs for FNPs. You will be eligible to take the ENP boards.
