I am officially getting a new employer. No, I'm not switching actual jobs, just transitioning from an employee of a small, local company to working for a large, national staffing organization. While I expect my position, salary and benefits will be similar with my new employer, there are a few things I need to have in order for my job transition. Any time you take on a new NP position you need to pay close attention to your malpractice coverage.

November marks a month to be thankful for all the great things we have in life. For example, I’m extremely thankful that I made it out of my first semester of nursing school with some good grades and my head above water! But sometimes there are things as a nursing student I would really rather not see in a day – like wounds that expose tendons, C. diff, or a maxed out floor with more post-ops trying to squeeze through.
If you're on the hunt for your first nurse practitioner job, you may have run into some hurdles along the way. Maybe you've been lucky enough to get an interview, but things took a turn for the worse after meeting the prospective employer. Landing a nurse practitioner position without NP experience isn't easy. But, if you approach an interview the right way you just may find yourself hearing the words "you're hired!".
It's finally Friday! While the weekend may be (nearly) here, I plan to spend it in a flurry of productivity. Cleaning house, getting a head start on Thanksgiving cooking, and some final fall yard clean-up is in order. My hard work will be topped off by a Friendsgiving celebration. Who doesn't like an excuse to eat stuffing twice in one week? And, I'm not hosting! What's do you have in store for the weekend?
