Happy National NP Week, nurse practitioners! We hope your start to the week—which kicked off on Sunday and runs through Saturday, November 18—has been memorable and filled with celebrations and well wishes from patients, colleagues, and healthcare leaders alike.
In honor of you, your peers, and your special week, Medicus Healthcare Solutions formally recognizes and applauds practicing NPs who work locum tenens and/or have permanent positions at hospitals, health systems, medical practices, clinics, and urgent care centers throughout the United States. We thank you for your contributions to medicine and for making it possible for many patients—particularly those in rural and underserved areas—to be seen and treated in a timely manner.
To further express our appreciation of you and your commitment to the delivery of quality care, we’re highlighting a handful of blogs, in no particular order, written by dedicated NPs just like you. We hope you find them informative, inspirational, and engaging.
- ER Nurses Care. Leslie Block, an emergency department nurse practitioner, focuses on the issues of health, nursing, caring, kindness, and positive change in her award-winning blog, which provides resources and links for professionals. Past posts on pet safety in winter and flu season are particularly worth a read this time of year.
- Modern Nurse Blog. This is the blog of Melissa DeCapua, DNP, PMHMP. She’s a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner as well as a design researcher at Microsoft who advocates for NP rights through state and national lobbying. Recent posts include “Day in the Life of a Psychosomatic Medicine NP” and “Nurse Practitioners: A Cost-Saving Solution to Medical Care.”
- My Strong Medicine. Sean Dent—NP, speaker, podcaster, blogger, and social video expert—provides readers with “real-world nursing tips, how-to hacks,” and personal opinions and insights. In his latest vlogs, he covers the topics of nurse bullying and when to start looking for a nurse mentor.
- Nurse Barb’s Daily Dose. Barb Dehn is a practicing women’s health nurse practitioner, author, and national speaker who offers readers advice on healthy living, caregiving, parenting, and other areas. Planning for pregnancy and a recipe for a smoothie that boosts muscle health are among her most current topics.
