A known risk of increased suicidality among TGNC individuals and a lack of provider training on prescribing gender-affirming hormones (GAH) in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia highlighted a need for building capacity around gender-affirming care delivery. A referral network was established across the province, which reduced wait times to access GAH by several months.

Noninfectious causes of fever in adults : The Nurse Practitioner

Fever is a common clinical sign encountered in hospitalized patients and often represents the cardinal sign of infectious processes. However, a number of noninfectious etiologies causing fever should be considered prior to initiating broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy. Reducing unnecessary antibiotic use is crucial in an era of increasing resistance.

APRN transition to practice: Program development tips : The Nurse Practitioner

Leaving the comfort zone of being an experienced RN for a new career as an inexperienced advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) is one of the greatest difficulties of the APRN transition to practice. To date, very few formal APRN residency or fellowship transition programs exist. Practicing APRNs can advocate for a formal transition program in their organizations.

Attention fellow healthcare providers and administration: these surveys are secure and the payment is quick!
From my personal experience I can tell you that Mr. Mike Harrison is one of the best binary options/forex managers I have met in a while. I had lost over $3000 on the advice of managers who have little to no experience. Today I remain grateful to Mr. Mike Harrison for coming through for me during my early days of trials and errors. If you’re new to binary and forex options and you’re already giving up, take my advice. Don’t loose your hard earned money unnecessarily. Reach out to a professional team today. Do remember to mention me as your referral so I can earn my bonus. One good turn deserves another, right? You can contact Mr. Mike via Email: [email protected] WhatsApp:+1 919 725 7198

Attention All NPs: Its Time to Break Free Of The Heirachy & Close The Provider Gap AB890 is a bill that will allow nurse practitioners to work independently by removing an outdated physician oversight requirement that will help in addressing the shortage of primary health care providers, especially in medically underserved rural and urban areas. The bill has passed out of the CA Legislature with an overwhelming two-thirds, bipartisan vote in the Senate and a concurrent 53-1 vote in the Assembly. The bill now moves to the Governor desk, and he has until September 30 to either sign or veto the bill. Hence the onus is now on governor Gavin Newsom to close the provider gap by signing it. So all nurse practioners please make sure to contact the CA Governor office and communicate the importance of him signing AB 890 that will help in closing the providers gap. Rembember that breaking free of the hierarchy of the doctors &/or medical establishment and gaining your independence to help provide health care for all people depends on you voicing in your support and telling Governor Gavin to Sign AB890 into Law.

A DIEHARD ATHEIST AND BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN WERE ROOMMATES IN COLLEGE. Like most good friends they tried to change each other for the better. The atheist asked the Christian, can you see, touch or hold God in your hand? The Christian said no. The atheist follows up question was then how do you an otherwise intelligent person know God is real. The Christian said because I can “feel him”. One day the Christian found the atheist crying and rolling on the floor in deep pain. He asks him what is wrong? The atheist said I have a bad toothache. The Christian asked can you see or hold it in your hand? The atheist said no. The Christian asked so how do you, an otherwise intelligent person, know your toothache is real? The Atheist screamed because “I can feel It”. There are many State republicans Governors, U.S. Congressmen and women who, when Mitch McConnell blows the trumpet, are kneeling and kissing TRUMP’S ring. They value their dark/ under the table money over your life. The World Health Organization told TRUMP’S representatives in December 2019 about the deadly coronavirus. The reprehensive told TRUMP by classified intelligence briefings and “EYE’S ONLY” written reports it is in the air and spreading all over the world. Trump was praying (smile) it would not come to the USA and hurt his reelection, so he kept it quiet for months. If we, USA, would have started our distancing and quarantine in January, how many lives do you think could have been saved? You have a choice “six feet apart wearing a mask or doing your own thing and ending up six feet underground”. As for me and my household, we will keep our six-foot distance and stay out of crowds until the doctors and scientists find a treatment or vaccine to help lessen the effects of coronavirus. I am asking all my family members, friends and ex-students to only take medicine prescribed by your doctor. The street -level drug dealers and TRUMP have three things in common. Money is their GOD, they failed science in the 5th grade and can’t even spell the name of the deadly drugs they are pushing. ARE YOU REGISTERED?
