    Adult-Gero Primary Care NP in Plastics Office?

    Hi! Thank you for your reply… that’s the line of thinking I was going for. I’ve also found a lot of other AGPCNP’s in my area who work in the field, so that helped too. Thank you again!
  2. New AGNP with a question... Can an adult-gero primary care NP work in a plastic surgery office seeing post-op patients? No, there would be no rounding in the hospital. No, there would be no stepping in the OR -- strictly in the clinic ...

    Looking for Aesthetics Mentor

    In my opinion, the aesthetics industry has a lot to do with networking, and being persistent. If you are not currently in the field or have a solid amount of experience, I have found that no one will teach you anything for free (unless a practice hir...

    Travel Aesthetic Nursing?

    It's funny you mention travel and aesthetics -- I just saw an assignment posted on Medely for a need for an injector in CA. Might be worth looking into! I myself do per diem travel contracts, and am currently training as an injector -- but it is...

    FNP as a First Assist?

    There was no assumption that the RNFA role is an advanced practice role. I know what the credential is and how the role works when an RN is certified to be a first-assist. I just didn't word the original question correctly and I think it confused man...

    FNP as a First Assist?

    Right.. but here we are specifically referring to FNPs. The ones you are referring to are most likely acute care NP's. But I've also seen FNP's in some states who function this way as well. As others have responded.. looks like it varies from state ...

    FNP as a First Assist?

    Yes, I knew an RN can be a RNFA.. but I have seen PA's and NP's doing procedures alone (kidney stone removal/stent placement, TURP's, etc.), with no surgeon present. I don't think an RN can do something to that capacity, as far as I know. So I'm cur...

    FNP as a First Assist?

    Is this possible? An FNP also functioning as a First Assist (ex: in an outpatient surgery center)? Would this not be considered acute care or a role only for an acute care NP? If an FNP can function as a first assist.. in what setting would this be p...

    So TIRED OF IT

    The moment patients and their families became "clients".. that's where it all went downhill. I love taking care of people, but I don't get paid to be cussed at, spit on, bitten, strangled by my stethoscope, or sexually assaulted by a patient or their...

    Any NPs in EMS or the Fire Dept?

    Yikes.. the last part of your statement. I always wondered how unsafe it felt to go into random people's homes..

    Any NPs in EMS or the Fire Dept?

    I'm also curious to know how paramedics or other EMS personnel feel about this newly implemented position for NP's? Feel free to drop a comment about your thoughts!

    Any NPs in EMS or the Fire Dept?

    Thanks so much for your input! I had a strong feeling they were using FNPs for this, especially considering the fact that they'd have to treat anyone in the population. I just didn't know if this would be an environment that the "consensus model" did...
