4 Reasons You Should Work in a Prison

Most nurse practitioners I talk to are understandably hesitant to even consider working in a correctional facility. If they don't personally have any qualms about taking care of inmates, their significant other is bound to have some hesitation about the opportunity. After all, life as a nurse practitioner working in a correctional facility is often misunderstood (I did just look up the difference between jail and prison).

Decoding Nurse Practitioner Job Board Jargon

If you're on the hunt for the perfect nurse practitioner job, you've undoubtedly searched a job board or two. Eventually, after scrolling through posting after posting, your eyes begin to glaze over. Until your phone start ringing, that is. The forms of interest you've filled out online have triggered an endless string of calls about jobs and you can't keep track of who's who. Inevitably, you step away from the computer, your head space too overwhelmed to deal with reading about one more position that isn't a match for your needs.

3 Ways Nurse Practitioners Can Work from Home

You don't want to know what I look like when I work on writing for the MidlevelU blog. It's pretty much a horrific fashion train wreck. Giant sweat pants and ill fitting tees are typical features of my outfit de jour. My husband gave me a shirt reading "I'm not a player, I just blog a lot" that makes an occasional appearance. It's safe to say that in the wee hours of the morning which is when I get the most done, style is just about the last thing on my mind. That's the beauty of working from home.

Working for a Large Hospital System: Weighing the Pros and Cons

I've always fancied myself a small hospital or independent clinic kind of girl. My first nurse practitioner jobs were in walk-in and urgent care clinics where I interacted with the physician owners almost daily. Any question or concern I had went straight to the top of the administration chain. Or, rather, there was no chain.

Taylor Swift Has an Agent, Shouldn't You?

Nashville, Tennessee where I live is one of those unassuming places celebs can be spotted but not bothered. Tim McGraw once directed my roommate and I into a parking spot at the movie theater where he then proceeded to walk, hand in hand, into the theater with wife Faith Hill. Naturally, my roommate and I immediately changed our movie selection and picked a seat directly behind the pair.

Do States With Independent Practice Have Higher NP Salaries?

As I was reviewing healthcare attorney Alex Krause's blog post about nurse practitioner compensation last week, a lightbulb went off in my head. He asserted that NP scope of practice laws affect how much nurse practitioners are paid. The theory? NPs practicing in states with more restrictive scope of practice laws have less bargaining power when it comes to their salaries. They can't do as much so they aren't paid as much. Interesting...

A Sample Nurse Practitioner Letter of Resignation

Leaving a job, even if it's on good terms, can be a sticky situation. It puts you and your employer in an awkward spot. A well-written letter of resignation, however, can help smooth over hard feelings as well as serve as necessary documentation of your intent to quit. A "take this job and shove it" message is never a good idea, even if it's how you feel.
