This week nobody wanted to see me! What the heck! I’ll talk a bit about that, and how I’m feeling over all one month into being an NP! As you can probably tell, it was a pretty slow week at work, but I did have my first student! Which was fun, and a good reminder that even if you don’t know a lot, you can always teach something!

This weeks video is a Q&A with my mom, a registered nurse with 30 some years of experience! This is part 1 of a 2 part interview series with her. In today’s video we talked about what kind of nursing she’s done, what her favorite specialties are, some tips for dealing with challenging co-workers and surgeons, what shifts she has worked, and lots about Nurse Practitioners. It was really fun interviewing her, and I hope you enjoy and learn something from it as well!
Hey guys! Welcome to this weeks vlog! I’m about 4 weeks into being an FNP and man am I really ready to be more efficient at work. The whole transition from expert to novice Is starting to get to me, which I’ll discuss a bit in the video. This week the whole family was in a bit of a funk, which we will discuss a bit, and I’ll explain what I usually do in order to help get out of weird moods. Other things I did this week: worked more independently at work, applied for my NPI number, and shared some recipes! Hope you all had a great first week back to school if you were starting back up again!
Pathophysiology and Advanced Pathophysiology are some of the hardest classes in nursing and NP school! But you can absolutely pass them, and this video has some of my tips to help you get there! In this video I’ll go over how I decide what I’m going to read in patho, my methods for skimming information, and where I find additional information to supplement my learning. Advanced patho in particular really made me get creative with how I found and digested information, since there wasn’t a lot of lecture, and I’m not someone who learns well from books. I’ll throw out some helpful ways for auditory and visual learners as well as give my favorite tips for studying. Hope it helps! And remember, you CAN do this. Just take it one day at a time!
