This weekend I'm entering full-on spring cleaning mode. I'll be pulling clothes out of my closet by the handful to donate to Goodwill, scrubbing baseboards and walls and wiping elusive dust bunnies from nooks and crannies. This may not seem like the most exciting way to spend the weekend but the feeling that I get when my house is spic 'n span is unbeatable. What are you up to this weekend?

Nurse practitioner run practices are increasing in number throughout the country. From house call businesses to family practices, nurse practitioners are establishing themselves as business owners in the healthcare industry. Working with nurse practitioners to form their own practices is an exciting experience, but also one that many nurse practitioners find intimidating.
If you've been notified of pending disciplinary action against you as a nurse practitioner, agreeing to a simple restriction on your license rather than a more formal disciplinary hearing may seem like the obvious best choice to diffuse the situation. Perhaps the Board of Nursing puts an agreement on the table that allows you to practice provided that your charts are simply reviewed by a physician. Not too shabby given the alternative, right?

Friends, family, and my patients are asking what they need to know about these products potentially contaminated with Listeria.
