  1. f you are an APRN or plan to become one, we need your help. This will take a few minutes to promote full practice authority where you can have your own practice without a paying a physician to supervise you. If we lose, it is over until 2023. Tell your colleagues and family! https://ntnp.enpnetwork.com/nurse-practitioner-news/213198-help-hb-2029-cannot-get-out-of-committee-

    Battle for NP Independent Practice!

    Two bills have been submitted for independent practice to the Texas House and Senate. If you are an NP, would like to become one someday, or just support NPs in general, please contact your legislators. South Dakota became the 22nd state with NP autonomy just last week. We need as many letters as possible. It will take two minutes via this easy link: CALL to ACTION!

    PMHNP and violent patients

    Thank you, PsychiatricNP! A very informative post. I am wondering only one thing: that disruptive patient that you had to cut off - can you still determine what appropriate meds to give them despite the brevity of the encounter?

    PMHNP and violent patients

    I used to work admissions at a local MHMRA and I also had to omit certain items if the patient was uncooperative. However, the next morning a doctor would have to come in and assess them. What you say sounds reasonable but I would really like to know what practicing PHMNPs do with these violent/uncooperative patients for assessment. Do they rely on report from the ED or police and guess at the rest? Is this enough to start prescribing meds for them? I don't have PM capability but if you do or anyone else, let's hear it from the experts like zenman, PsychiatricNP, or resilientnurse! Thanks for your views.
  7. I am applying to the University of Texas at Arlington for the Fall 2013 FNP. At the information session, the administrators told us that the school would arrange our first two preceptors but we were responsible for obtaining the rest of them. I asked for more details and I was told that students were expected to cold-call offices, join the state association, etc. If that didn't work, the school would vaguely "step in" and somehow either arrange a preceptor or give us lists of former preceptors to try. Can any current or former students give me more specifics? I have read numerous horror stories here on Allnurses about FNP students struggling to arrange preceptors. I will do anything I can such as the ENP network, emailing state association members, or even accepting a preceptor across the state where I have to stay in a local cheap hotel for a month at a time to acquire clinical hours. Will UTA let me down if I still can't find anyone and need an arranged preceptor? Much thanks for any information!
