  1. Hello everyone. I read on the Web site of UpToDate that units earned from using UTD can be used to renew AANP license. Does anyone know if UpToDate units can be used to renew RN license in CA? Thank you all. :)

    Review of contract before signing

    Hello everyone. I have several questions regarding the review of contract before signing. 1. Did you review your contract right before signing in the office or did you ask that the contract be sent to you or a copy be given to you so that you can review at home before signing? 2. Is it ok to ask for a copy and review the contract at home before signing it? 3. Did you ask another person, eg a colleague, lawyer etc., to look at the contract before signing? Is it really needed? 4. Do you have a no compete clause? How many miles and years? 5. What are the provisions in the contract that need to be reviewed thoroughly. Thank you. :)

    FNP direct entry advice

    Broke and unemployed

    I am in the same boat as you are. But for me it's a little bit different, I'm finding it difficult to find the right fit. It's very challenging to find the right fit. I don't want to sign a contract then leave after a year. I just signed a part-time (as independent contractor) for a podiatrist. Will visit nursing homes two to four times a month. This will keep me afloat for now, hopefully. Hang in there.

    Travel from home to work

    Hello, how far is your workplace from your home? How far are you willing to travel for work (miles/minutes?)? Will an hour of travel (about 50 miles) be reasonable? Thank you all.
