    Family Practice

    Thank you for your responses and for sharing a patient case! It’s very helpful to get input from those who have been in practice. That patient case is exactly why I would be concerned—- If for some reason the patient responds poorly due to a misdiagnosis or reaction to a medication. I would prefer to refer all patients if I could, but uncertain if that would be accepted by the practice. My FNP program had one class on psych, but did not have a clinical rotation so there was no hands on experience in evaluating patients and medication management.

    Family Practice

    For any NPs who work in a family practice setting, how much of your patient population is treated for psych conditions and when would you refer these patients to psychiatrists?

    What would you recommend as a good book/reference for family practice?

    Interview

    Has anyone gone through an interview process where an e-mail was not received from the employer with details about the next steps in the interview process, including scheduled interviews? I was working with a recruiting specialist, who both spoke to me via phone and confirmed information by e-mail with scheduled interview times. I later received a phone call from another recruiting specialist, who said she was in contact with the former recruiter who I spoke with. I was told that her call was to inquire about my availability to come in for two in-person interviews. She said that she would e-mail me right away with the information. The following day, I received a voicemail message from the provider at the practice location indicating he is calling to provide me with information about the practice and he is uncertain of where I am in the interview process. A personal cell phone number was left in the voicemail message, which is not his own cell phone number. I checked my e-mail and there are no messages from the recruiter about the interviews for next week or that I was going to receive a phone call from the provider prior to that time. Would anyone be skeptical about calling a personal versus a business phone number for a phone screening interview, without an e-mail confirming this was going to take place?
