    For nearly a half-century, nurse practitioners across the United States have provided comprehensive, cost-effective, patient-centered services to millions of Americans in need of primary, acute, and specialty healthcare services. Currently, there are 148,000 NPs practicing in the US with an estimated 9,500 new NPs completing their academic programs in 2010-2011. According to Penny Kaye Jensen, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, FAANP, president of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners:

    Posted by admin on Nov 14, 2011 8:31:37 AM

    The following blog post is from Cathy Cress, author of Handbook of Geriatric Care Management:

    November is National Caregiver’s Month. This is an opportunity for Geriatric Care Managers (GCMs) to celebrate and call attention to the plight of family caregivers. In the third edition of Handbook of Geriatric Care Management, I have added a chapter, “Assessing and supporting the Family Caregiver” (Ch.9). This new chapter highlights GCM’s important role in building this desperately needed platform for drowning family caregivers. Why are they drowning?

    New 5-Star Review: Pediatric CCRN Certification Review

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Nov 4, 2011 2:19:18 PM

    Pediatric CCRN Certification Review has received 5-stars from Doody's Review Service! Reviewer Julie A. Warren, RN, MSN, CCRN from Presbyterian Healthcare Services writes that,

    “There are very few books available to prepare for this exam, and even fewer with practice questions. This is a very welcome review! Its best features are the section on test-taking strategies and the online interactive testing program that comes with the book. Nurses studying for national certification exams never seem to have enough practice questions to challenge and prepare them. Thanks so much to the authors for providing this much needed study manual.”

    Weighted Numerical Score: 98 - 5 Stars!

    Thank you, Doody's!
