  1. My office is expanding and we've remodeled a neighboring office for me to move into. Currently my nurse and I share the same office so it's easy to communicate orders and tasks to each other. In this new space, we will be in separate offices with a few exam rooms in between. I put orders into our EMR, but usually verbalize what I want and don't use the EMR to order repeat BPs and such. Just wondering how you guys communicate with your MAs/nurses. The pediatrician I use for my kids has a white board above his workstation that's split into rooms. He'll write what he needs - labs, UA, immun
  2. Just wondering if anyone has used helpzebra or the CME4life DVDs and flash cards to review for PANRE and what your opinion of them are. Thanks!
  3. Hi all, I am in my 5th year of practice and will go ahead and take the PANRE this year. I don't think I'll have the time to go to a review course. What opinions do you have of the CME4Life DVDs or helpzebra? Or would you recommend something else? I currently work in family practice and I'm a visual learner, if that makes a difference.
  4. Luckily, I am paid hourly and will get paid overtime if I work it, including charting at home. I have a 7 year old as well as a 7 month old and want them not to remember mommy has always working. "Work to live, not live to work". So spending as little time charting at home would be ideal. My MA is great and we work well together. The only problem I have is how the front desk books the patients. Usually routine checkups, well child visits, and new patients are scheduled for 30 mins. Everything else is scheduled for 15 mins. Triage from the front desk is sometimes hit or miss. ER follow
  5. I am now going on my 4th year at a family practice office. Initially I saw a lot of pediatric patients and could see 20-23 in a day and only need to stay about 30-45 mins after work hours (8-5) to finish charting. My patient population was probably 75%/25% - peds/adults. We've had a lot of PA/NP position changes and now my population is more 55%-45% - peds/adults. I also have a new baby, so I have to be out of the office by 5:15 to get him from day care. I now see between 18-22 pts a day and probably chart 1-2 hours at home once the family's asleep. It's been 7 months and it's starting t
  6. Tis the season. Just wondering if anyone gives their nurse a bonus.
  7. I am a new grad and will be starting my new job in GI in a few weeks. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on books I should get to help me along the way. Thanks!
