  1. Florida FNP

    I have lived in Florida most of my life. I have a business here. I chose to stay in Florida only because of family obligations, but were it not for that I would have left. I have young children, and I am self-employed. Otherwise I probably would be ...
  2. Being Gay and a Male Nursing Student

    Seriously, take the gay out out of it. Just be a professional. Your personal life is your business. No employer, patient, or co-worker is entitled to any type of disclosure from you. And even if you want to disclose, its none of their business, so do...
  3. New Grad NP salary Texas

    Some here lie and troll about the reality of all this (for their own purposes, I'm sure). I used to give advice to younger and newer RNs and NPs based on my own experiences over the many years that I've been doing this. I try not to do this anymore. ...
  4. 1st NP Job: Pain Management, bad move?

    David, 27 patients is not high for pain management clinics. I worked in one as a locum and I was seeing an average of 40 a day. If you're having trouble finding a job and this is all there is for now, take it so you can gain some experience, but go i...
  5. Switching offices

    How much do you like this job? My experience in dealing with these types of private practices where family and nepotism hold sway is that you will not win if you try to take them on. They will always choose their family and close friends over you. '...
  6. Contract Penalty fee $30,000

    Why do you really like this company? Think, for a moment, about why they would put that particular language (about the $30,000) in the contract? Is it for any other reason than to screw the unsuspecting NP who accepts a job there then later figures ...
  7. Self Employed

    Even if you are not a person of faith, I wish you God's blessings and much success with your plans to start your own business. It is so very rare that I encounter other NPs who are even thinking in this direction. It is one of the best decisions you...
  8. You seem a bit judgmental. I remember a time when college education was much more affordable. I also worked full time while I was in school and paid my way through my RN and BSN degrees. But that was all a very long time ago. Most available non-prof...
  9. Telemedicine and Locums NPs

    I used to do both. There are reputable companies out there that post these jobs (there used to be, anyway). You apply to them just like any other job. As a locum, you will be traveling to the location, but be certain its in your contract that they ar...
  10. CRNA School and Debt Advice

    A word of advice...look for a cheaper school. Avoid taking on that much more debt. As a nurse you may not be privy to the terms that these student loan programs make available to physician students. Also consider that subsidized graduate loans are ca...
  11. How bad do I want it?

    Without revealing exactly where you are, do you mind saying which state you are in? Despite what you describe as YOUR personal experience with finding a job, someone will soon show up and say that there are plenty of high paying jobs and that you jus...
  12. Second Thoughts on leaving Bedside for NP role

    No its not just you. Its just that some of us are in serious denial about whats really happening to this profession. It is a slow decline that's not yet as visible in certain areas, but the creep is on. I don't believe that most nurses who became NPs...
  13. Second Thoughts on leaving Bedside for NP role

    If you have to stay in Florida then do not give up your RN position. Available NP jobs there don't just pay low and require you to put up with a lot of crap, they also typically come with little or no benefits at all. And if you need health insurance...
  14. If you mean that you are thinking about doing locums work as an NP I can give you some tips, as I did locums for a while towards the end of my time working for other folks. It is definitely better to work as a locum and travel to areas outside of sou...
  15. My Pain clinic was raided by DEA

    Hi, I'm curious to know how this has worked out for you. You got pretty good advice already, but I want to add that you can appeal the DEA thing in federal court---even if you had surrendered the license voluntarily. There are attorneys that speciali...
