  2. Hi everyone, I was wondering if any of you would feel comfortable enough to share a template of your resume/cover letter. I feel like mine are very old and not up to date and just trying to obtain some ideas on how to best design/prepare and update my resume/cover letter. Some examples I have seen are colored as opposed to just black and white, some contain a personal picture. Thanks in advance, Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Do you guys have any recommendations on any emergency medicine books I can purchase to study? As mentioned in earlier posts; I am interested in working at an UC or ER. My background is inpatient cardiology and inpatient palliative medicine. Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hello everyone- I am looking for some general advice on books/webinars that you guys have used to have better communication at the workplace with your managers. I feel that often times managers don’t look into who you really are and how hard you work and because of things like things we find roadblocks in opportunities to move up the ladder or get the highest raise, etc. I see that there is a lot of favoritism and some of these favoritism goes to people that simply know how to behave and what things to say as oppose to how hard they work. Are there any books on leadership or emotional intelligence that you guys recommend to better understand how to behave and move ahead in the workplace? How to be tactical I suppose? Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Have been an AAP for two years, working Inpatient Cardiology and Palliative Medicine. I would like to start working some urgent care, walk in clinics to start moving my career to other specialties. Any recommendation on which book(s) would be good to read/study before starting to apply to these kind of jobs? Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hello everyone- Hope you all are doing well. Need your advise. I am 38 years old, have been an NP for two years exactly in October; completed a dual NP/PA program. Previous to becoming an NP; I was an ICU RN for 6 years. The big question is: Is it worth for me to go back and obtain my CRNA? The reason I didn’t do CRNA instead of NP was because at that time 1) finances didn’t permit it , 2) I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it; I was 50/50 3) I knew I wanted to become an NP/PA because it’s a great profession. Why am I thinking about CRNA school? 1) I miss critical care and being in full control of your patient. 2) CRNAs have more respect and are treated much better than NPs/PAs, 3) The financial compensation is amazing! My wife will be completing her RN degree in May and we have some great savings in the bank that could allow me to go back to school as she could take over our bills. I have a 3 and a 9 year old. I currently make around $140K/year and we have some great savings in the bank, I would use around 50K of those savings to go towards CRNA school. Most programs are 3 year programs now, a few are still two. I would have to retake 2-3 classes and then apply. Given this information: Do you think it’s worth it and would you do it if you were in my situation? I would probably start the program at age 39 or 40 and be done by age 42-43. If I do it, i would be doing it for personal satisfaction, career advancement, opportunities and finances of course. What are your thoughts? Thanks! Eduardo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I would have gone to Medical School or Engineering/Business field. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks for the reply! Ideally I would love to stay and if they could make an adjustment I am more than willing to stay. I guess I just want to know how to approach it without them feeling threatened, rather making them aware of that offer and my desire to stay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hello everyone- As you may recall a few weeks ago I posted this question looking for some advice/guidance on how to request an increase in salary/compensation as part of my ability to see more patients, increase flow due to being bilingual. I was actually getting ready to go talk to my manager about it this week when I got a call from a recruiter on Friday asking me if I was interested in a position (same specialty I’m doing) at a hospital 45 minutes away. ( They dar my resume online). They are offering me $10 more per hour than what I make right now. I love the facility where I am at, love what I do, but this offer is very tempting. How can I make my manager/supervisor aware of this call from the recruiter and that offer they made me? The recruiter did mention that they are looking for someone bilingual and someone with the interests I have. I have a few projects that I am working on with my current job to make it better. What would be the right approach to my current facility to see if they can match or at least give a substantial increase compared to the new offer from the recruiter? Thanks in advance everyone.

  10. Anyone here at the AAPA Adult Hospital Medicine Boot Camp conference in Orlando? Let me know! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Medic25, please do share the specifics of this as I want to start one for my hospital as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for the reply and guidance; I highly appreciate it. I found out how much the interpreters that work for my hospital make per hour. They start at $17/hr for someone with 1 year experience. I have been an advanced clinical interpreter for my hospital district since I started working here 6 years ago; same certification these interpreters gave. I guess my approach should be that rather than waiting for an interpreter I can get to it and this will increase patient flow/productivity as well as better patient outcomes because of the one to one communication rather than using an interpreter. I am just somewhat nervous to approach my manager or director and really need your input to make it flow nicely and not mess it up lol. Thanks in advance again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I have been working for the same hospital and under the same manager for almost a year; first job after school. In short, I would like to be compensated extra on top of my base pay for being bilingual (Spanish) and using my language continuously when interacting with patients/families. I am certified as an advanced clinical interpreter through this same hospital; basically the same certification hired interpreters have. I could simply call an interpreter when dealing with this patient population and I have in the past, but I have found that the outcomes are better when I’m communicating with the patients directly than using an interpreter. I don’t mind doing this, I actually enjoy it, but I feel that I would like to be compensated for this some how. There is a form I can fill out every time I translate that states that for every 15 minutes of translation I will be compensated 50 cents; this is too much work as I have to include a summary of the interaction and patient information. I need assistance and advice on how to approach my manager or my managers director. Advice and guidance are highly appreciated. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Any of you or someone you might know in inpatient palliative medicine? Got a very good offer with an amazing schedule that I would regret later if I don’t take. 3 12s/weekly, 6am-6pm, weekends, holidays off plus an increase in pay from where I’m at. Your thoughts. Im currently doing inpatient cardiology. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I completed a Dual NP/PA program a couple years ago and although I enjoy my job, I am really considering doing a CRNA program. Your thoughts? If you could do it, would you? I would pay for the program with my savings and keep working part time during the first year as a lot of the masters of science in nursing classes I took. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
