This week was exciting! We had our sixth wedding anniversary, went to some fun sunflower festival, Avery had her two year old well child check, and we headed off on our vacation! We also experienced our first full fledged airplane meltdown. Which was an adventure. Work was also cool because I am starting to feel more confident in my role as a Family Nurse Practitioner finally. This weeks tips include: how to maximize your experience as a student, how I start talking about preventative screenings early, and more!
It was Avery’s second birthday this week! And she took over the whole week with her celebrations. So we will go through those, and also show a few of my days at work as a Family Nurse Practitioner! This week we will be discussing how to help patients describe their symptoms when they are poor historians, and providers roles in healthcare as guides, not necessarily decision makers.
In this weeks vlog we’ll discuss how I review new patients charts and what information I request from their previous providers, I have a small meltdown about insurance and how much it will cost to have baby number two, differentiating allergies from acute illness and lots of shopping for the perfect diaper bag. Oh and it’s the fourth of July!

This week Joe surprised me with a new Apple Watch for my early birthday present after I murdered my last one. In today’s video I thought I would talk about how having an Apple Watch has been helpful while working as a nurse. Do you need one, what are the benefits, etc. I’ll also discuss how I use the apple watch in my current job as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Other things we will talk about this week are how to prepare for well child checks, my overwhelming day at work, and what I always send my patients home with from their primary care visit. We celebrate Avery’s birthday early with my mom, and have a fun weekend out as well. Thanks for watching!
