  1. Telehealth with Leadership Health?

    Hello! Does anyone here work for Leadership Health in their telehealth programs? I'm just now diving into the company but it sounds interesting.
  2. Columbia admissions

    Columbia University does NOT give merit scholarships. They give NEED BASED aid. What is your EFC? You need to sit down and discuss this with the financial aid office at Columbia so you completely understand how it works. In general, if you have a low...
  3. FNP restrictions in Texas

    I worked in family practice for six years with a solo MD/practice owner. Here is how my days went: Arrive at work, review my labs, see my patients all day. Leave at 6. On a normal day I would see the MD once--at lunch or perhaps in the hallway in bet...
  4. Vanderbilt ACNP Intensivist Program

    Do not go 70K into debt for the Vanderbilt name. Go to an accredited program in your own state and seek out extra experiences/conferences and training.
  5. In-home NP Medicare Assessments

    @kjpham Yes I am still with them! I'm sorry you didn't get an offer...keep your chin up and keep looking!
  6. How to find NP positions in Healthcare Insurance

    Agreed with Agriffin2 The closest I have found in "working from home" as an NP is the in-home Medicare risk assessments. There ARE some things I definitely miss about having an office and actively having my own patient roster. But for me, at this tim...
  7. Reducing Boys' Embarassment

    "I know this may be embarrassing to *you* but I do it a million times a day and to me it is just like looking at your knee/ears/insert body part"..I say it in a super factual way, make it quick and brief and then move on.
  8. In-home NP Medicare Assessments

    I sent you a pm
  9. How are you saving for retirement?

    Good ideas so far. We are actually fantastic at retirement savings. Have always maxed out the 401K and despite 2008, I think we will be recovered enough when the time comes. But I will add my biggest regret: Not saving enough for my kids college. Hu...
  10. I want to move Texas as a new grad NP. Need advice

    First of all, what makes you pick Houston?
  11. Is it bad or unprofessional to hide from drug company reps

    ^^^^ IDK....eating my lunch (that I brought from home) in another part of the office while the reps chat with everyone else is not necessarily hiding. I always called it "keeping my sanity" and "taking a real lunch." I do like the idea about making t...
  12. Is it bad or unprofessional to hide from drug company reps

    I agree with aligning with them to some extent for networking. Some of them are very helpful and are good, genuine people. I always made it very clear I respected them, but was never going to use their products unless it was a last resort. Their "cou...
  13. NPs working in Texas

    I worked for five years in family practice seeing my own patients, doing my own thing, consulting only with my collab physician when needed. Never felt there were any restrictions or problems. I've never been one dying to have my own practice so mayb...
  14. I'm back again. Have you contacted all of the public/state schools in your area personally with a phone call i.e. not just looking online to see if there are any part-time options? $80K is gonna be all private loans, right? The interest will accrue w...
  15. No FNP jobs????

    Heck forget about mailing your resume...stop by and drop your resume off in person! I have many many friends who found jobs that way..usually in privately owned practices. The physician owners are too stressed and too busy to hunt for an NP. You shou...
