Crippen you love us…
On June 25th he started NP bashing again….boring. Just this once I am going to lower myself – because I feel passionately?
No, thought it might be fun.
I know Dr Crippens hides a secret passion for Nurse Practitioners, he just get confused between love and hate.
I am one such Nurse Practitioner…I sit in a GP surgery, behind a desk, with my tie on, call my patients and then:
Assess, (Diagnose), Plan, Implement and Evaluate their care (this is called the Nursing Process – cool hey?). I even – heaven forbid – prescribe.
Am I bound by Protocol? Hell no! I am (he’d love this bit) – an autonomous practitioner…. Crippins are you there? No? I can relax, I don’t want to be responsible for his blood pressure going up.
Do I work for the NHS? NO! I work for a partnership of GP’s. Yes – those mad fools employ me!!
WHY would they employ a NP? I hear you ask, Well the truth is 2 fold:
1: I’m good at my job,
2: I am cheaper to employ than another Dr. ( oh I feel so degraded and cheap – sob sob)
They can save money and buy sports cars instead of employing a Dr!!- WOW!
Hang on then – so the NHS don’t employ me – the Doctors themselves do….
Max ‘n’ Crip’s
Yes I am Frankensteins Nurse Practitioner. Doctors created my job…. Queue demonic laughter HA HA HA HAAAAAA – If it wasn’t for Doctors wanting me I’d be a “normal” nurse in an A&E (ER).
I know my scope of practice and I have no concerns about asking my colleagues (sorry I obviously meant superior doctors) about things I don’t know….and…are you ready for this…..sometimes they even ask ME for advice… Oh, I hope Crippen isn’t reading I don’t want to be responsible for his chest pain?
I should stop, but I am enjoying myself….
The movie “based” on the true story..
Historically Dr Crippens have been murderous creatures, is Dr John Crippen in fact related to Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen? Perhaps Dr HH Crippen’s wife wanted to move back to the USA to be an NP, and thus he murdered her. Perhaps this deep seated hatred of NP’s has been in the Crippen family for years.
Dr John Crippens seem to enjoy being rude about NP’s – is it that he enjoys our attention really? In the way a son might about a mother perhaps!! Sigmund where are you????
He is perhaps a sad man who just needs to have a big hug. Go on John give us a big manly hug. Make it your mission to embrace a Nurse Practitioner. You never know you might just grow to like us…
And yes, I know, if that big blogging monster Crippens reads my little blog he will slate me, and make rude comments. But actually I don’t give a monkeys. Why haven’t more NP’s commented? – I know the answer, they’re busy seeing his patients while he spends all his time blogging. (and yes – I am a blogger too – so I am skiving as much!!)
Dr. John Crippens I send you big manly hugs, and as much sarcasm as you like.
