Default advanced practice

hi all--

thought i'd start this one off--i practiced as an OB/GYN np for 17 years and loved every second of it--

now practice as a staff nurse (have climbed the clinical ladder!! LOLOL!!)

and see what difficulties face our profession as a result of doing this work--awesome!!

the shortage, the burnout, the nurse/nurse, nurse/doctor relationships--i have never witnessed such a battleground!!

Reading this gave me a great idea for my Nursing Jobs.org history column - I'll look at the history of the Nurse Practitioner! What is the major difference between your work as an NP and now as a staff RN? Did you find it hard to make the transition to staff?
