Stephen Ferrara, NP said...

Love the new site! Good luck with it and I'll look forward to your updates.

Nurse Practitioners Save Lives said...

Thanks Stephen! Glad you liked it! I hope to add a lot more resources as I find them.

Your reasons for liking what you do hold true for me too. I recently started blogging at, my blog is titled "no place for old np's" . I have no idea how to direct you to it as I'm new to blogging. I found you by googling "nurse practitioner blogs". Best wishes!

Nurse Practitioners Save Lives said...

Thanks Leapoffaith! I will find you through there!

Kidney Stones are very painful. What causes them and what are some treatments you can do at home?

Nurse Practitioners Save Lives said...

I will address your question on the main page of the site Editor. Thanks for the question!

In the office I am based, there is an MD and an ARNP. I sometimes hear pts. referring to the ARNP as "Dr." I don't correct them as it is not my degree to correct and as I am not an employee of this practice, but it does make me cringe inside when I hear it.

Sandy said...

Mamalife, you should "lightly" correct patients. I always tell people that there is a difference and then tell them that it may cause the NP some troubles if referred to as a doctor when they aren't.

Free N.P.'s said...

How is the job coming? Is being a N.P. everything you thought it would be? I hear that Florida is only 1 of 3 states that won't let N.P.'s write narcotics. Why??

Anonymous said...

I have been reading about the DNP degree on the AACN website. They are quick to point out that nursing and medicine provide/fill different roles. As a nurse practitioner what are you not allowed to do that a physician can?


Nurse Practitioners Save Lives said...

I can do anything a MD can do except for write controlled substances in FL as long as it's listed in my protocol between the collaborating MD and myself. I order and interpret tests, diagnose and treat disease processes and patient education. Hope this helps!

RehabNurse said...

Thanks for visiting me and thanks for the comments. I really enjoy your site (still looking at all of them).

I'm interested in doing a article about the quandaries of boundaries in nursing relationships with patients and former patients and I'd appreciate your feedback (and any other practicing RN, LPN, too.) on how you resolve this issues in your daily practice.

I don't think they really cover this well in nursing school and as a newer nurse, I think it's a good topic.

Thanks again. I'll add you to my list ASAP.

Nurse Practitioners Save Lives said...

Sure thing RehabRN! If you would like, I will write a post and you can site it in your paper. When is your paper due or is it a blogpost idea?

P Nicholas said...

Like your blog color which is my favorite! Very informative site. Hope you will include some alternative treatments, too.

Dear Jennifer,

While reviewing blogs that discuss health related topics, I noticed that yours seems to be well-read and well-informed. Your readers may be interested in the redesigned The site offers quick and easy prevention information and tools to help people stay healthy and prevent disease.’s new Quick Guide to Healthy Living uses everyday language and examples to:
• Describe “small steps” users can do to improve their health
• Give users positive reasons to change their behavior
• Provide tools and encouragement, such as personal health calculators, menu planners and recipes, tips for caregivers, and printable lists of questions to take to the doctor

The new “myhealthfinder” tool gives users personalized health recommendations based on sex, age, and pregnancy status, from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

The redesign of was informed by health literacy and usability principles, and the site was tested with more than 650 users. We’re excited about the result – a consumer health Web site that’s easy to understand and navigate, especially for people with limited health literacy.

The project is coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) and its National Health Information Center. Thanks for helping us spread the word.

I wanted to get in touch to see if we could possibly do some cross-promotion over the web. I'm hoping that you've got some time to schedule a chat on the phone this week about your website and possibly getting an advertising link or an unbiased interview of some kind for Medical Scrubs Mall
