  1. Toughen up and dazzle them with your professional brilliance. i sometimes, well I always thought that they made nursing school harder than it needed to be to toughen us up. Come back with a pithy, yet professional retort. Keep in mind two things; never be as funny as you can be (I still have a problem with this one.) and “If you think it’ll make you feel better or it’s funny, you’re best off not saying it.” (I’m getting better with this one.) Tell then you’re 65, that’ll cut their hot water to a cold drip.

    I'm Scared of Getting Fired

    I have a phobia about being fired, causes me no end of anxiety. I know, at least I think I do, what you are going through. I found locums work and don’t stay one place too long to wear out my welcome. I’ve hit a dry spell for the past eight months. I now plan to get my DNP/FNP and have a goal insight, this helps. I’ll give Nursing another chance to kick me out, they’ll fail, as they did twice before. Make sure you exercis and workout, this helps. Good luck dude.

    Jr. Male nursing student with a question

    Sounds like you just need to figure out which way to jump, good luck. Sounds like you’ll do well regardless of what you pick.

    Being Gay and a Male Nursing Student

    I’m heterosexual and I have women telling me about their cycles after awhile. We are all vulnerable in some way. Sorry, life is hard. Know that they are miserable creatures that have to try to exploit any, what they consider a character flaw. Harden up and drive on dude. You know your worth, don’t let them, anyone, tell you different.
  6. I’m looking for a post masters certificate in family practice. UofP, nope, have to get another masters, AND I have to take 3 courses because I don’t have a BSN (Duke didn’t require it because I had a bachelors already.) ASU sort of has a post masters, but not really. Theirs is tied into their DNP/FNP program, if they don’t fill the DNP, then they open it up to the PMC people, it never happens. I just got off the phone with Grand Canyon University, they told me the best they could offer me is another masters.

    Liability issues

    Is there inherent liability issues with an NP practicing as an RN?

    Psychedelic Nursing

    I wouldn’t bet the farm on this. With suicide on the up tick across the board and the emergence of ketamine therapy as a viable alternative. I believe ketamine works along the MDMA pathway. We will see more and more novel treatments.

    Any NPs have scribes?

    If you use EPIC, not all practices do. Still, would rather have a scribe.

    Why are FNP paid less than Psychiatric NP?

    The risk of going CCFCCP should be compensated. I worked with one in Farmington. We started on the same day. She was “normal” at that time, worked for 6 months, no red flags. I left for 3 months. I was asked to come back. When I saw her again, she had bright red lipstick on with the color bleeding through the cracks and an extremely forces “super smile” accompanied by wide open eyes. She looked CCFCCP (coo coo for co co puffs).

    Ophthalmology NP

    I asked an ophthalmologist what role an NP would fill. He said that optometrists fill that roll.

    DEA and doing locum tenens

    My locus companies usually handled that. Sometimes, if you are working in a hospital, depending on the circumstances, one can use the hospital’s dea number.

    FNP working in acute care

    As an brand new ANP, I almost took a job at Duke, I asked about not having ACNP cert. , they didn’t have a problem with it. This was ‘09. Now in AZ, MUST have ACNP to work in the hospital.

    DEA and doing locum tenens

    With states where independent practice is allowed, no sponsorship is needed. Unfortunately Georgia is part of the southeast, historically horrible for NPs.
