  1. ENT NPs, what do you do?

    Hi there, Wondering if there are any ENT/ORL NPs here that care to specify what they do on a day to day basis in terms of patient complaint and in-office procedures. Thanks!
  2. Negotiating the new job

    Sorry. Yes, the NPs are viewed as a part of the nursing staff and therefor hospital staff meaning there is no special perks such as parking unfortunately.

    Juan-this is a hospital-based position and non-union..
  4. Negotiating the new job

    Hey all. Just curious aside of pay, what types of things have you negotiated into accepting a position? I'm awaiting an offer that will come this week for my first NP position. It's the the city and parking spaces are at a premium. The shortest wait ...

  11. The waiting game, when is it okay to check in?

  12. Why did you become a Nurse Practitioner?

    1. Increased autonomy 2. A chance to learn new skills and challenge myself 3. Job opportunity in many areas and a modest pay raise 4. Lifestyle- no more call shifts , no holidays or off- shifts
  13. Questioning my decisions...

    Yes, I agree with the others-it sounds like you need to shadow a few APRNs and see what you are drawn towards. NP school is hard work, no doubt about it. If you don't have a solid idea of what you would be intersted in doing when you finish youre goi...

    No, not too interesting. Mostly pulling any pertinent patient history from various MD notes and then completing a limited physical and filling in the blanks of the assessment as well as educating on NPO status, what to expect day of surgery etc etc.....
  15. How many patients are you expected to see daily?
