Come To Work With Me. In today’s video I take you with me for a day in the life of a primary care provider! I’ll walk you through what my day to day looks like as a Family Nurse Practitioner, what tasks I complete behind the scenes, give you a tour of my office, and provide some tips for getting through your day without getting too behind.
This week we paid off a nursing school student loan, Avery discovered she is passionate about Easter egg hunts, I take you on a tour of my office at work, and I have my first solo Saturday at work as a Family Nurse Practitioner. It was a wild week! But a fun one. In it I shared some of how we are tackling our combined student loans, and how we plan to pay them off. Let me know if you want a whole video dedicated to that!
One of the questions I get asked most frequently is “do you miss being a bedside nurse?”. And the answer is yes! There are absolutely things I miss about being a bedside nurse, and some things I definitely don’t miss. In today’s video I’ll talk about which I like better, my role as a Family Nurse Practitioner or a bedside nurse. I’ll discuss what I miss about being a nurse on an inpatient unit, what I don’t miss about that, and some things I am loving about NP life.
This week we will discuss what I’m most worried about going into the birth of baby number two, how I approach physical exams, what I talk about with drug reps and new providers when they come visit the office, as well as starting end of life and goals of care conversations. We also tour the hospital I’ll be having the baby in, and Avery insults my baking. Have great week!
