Are you looking to make a career change in 2019? If you're growing tired of the same old routine, there's no time like the present to switch things up. Fortunately, you aren't alone in your need for variety. There are a number of nurse practitioners out there who have stepped out on a limb and created their own jobs or accepted positions that are definitely not the norm. Over the past year, we've featured some NPs doing some pretty cool things here on MidlevelU. In case you missed these posts, there's a link pack to inspire you in 2019. ⠀

"You deserve a love that wants you disheveled,
even with the reasons that raise you in a hurry
and with everything and the demons that don't let you sleep.
You deserve a love that makes you feel safe,
that can eat the world if walks from your hand,
to feel that your hugs are perfect with his skin.
You deserve a love that wants to dance with you,
that visit paradise every time that see your eyes
and never get bored of reading your expressions.
You deserve a love that listens to you when you sing,
to support you in your ridiculous,
that respects that you are free,
to accompany you on your flight,
Don't be afraid to fall
You deserve a love that takes away the lies,
that brings you the illusion,
the coffee and poetry". Frida Kahlo .
"Mereces un amor que te quiera despeinada,
incluso con las razones que te levantan de prisa
y con todo y los demonios que no te dejan dormir.
Mereces un amor que te haga sentir segura,
que pueda comerse al mundo si camina de tu mano,
que sienta que tus abrazos van perfectos con su piel.
Mereces un amor que quiera bailar contigo,
que visite el paraíso cada vez que ve tus ojos
y que no se aburra nunca de leer tus expresiones.
Mereces un amor que te escuche cuando cantas,
que te apoye en tus ridículos,
que respete que eres libre,
que te acompañe en tu vuelo,
que no le asuste caer.
Mereces un amor que se lleve las mentiras,
que te traiga la ilusión,
y la poesía". Frida Kahlo
In my effort to portray the real life of a doctor (in and outside of work) I’ve realized I have fallen short. Although in my work related posts I often share a picture of me in a white coat - the fact is that most of my life looks like this these days.
I will always be a Doctor first - but at this phase of my life my research has taken center stage. As I’ve mentioned before, I was grant funded in June via an NIH mentored career development award (K grant). What this means is that 75% of my salary is actually paid by this grant. That probably sounds a bit strange - but the purpose of the grant is to afford me time and funds to “lift off” my career in research. I do less time in the PICU (about 8 weeks of 7 days of service and 30ish overnight shifts) and the rest of the time I’m doing research.
I am extremely lucky to have a world renowned mentor (he was one of the first doctors to be board certified as a PICU doctor and essentially created the PRISM score which is a severity of illness score that allows researchers to CONTROL for severity of illness when the conduct research). And it is because of him that I’ve been able to get so far in such a short time. He assembled a team of incredible data scientists, statisticians, and a few doctors to perform some very exciting big data research.
So my life isn’t so glamorous guys - most doctors lives aren’t. But I wouldn’t change a THING about what I am doing today, and the path that it has set me on.
I do research because i am committed to leaving the field of pediatric critical care better than when I entered it. Research is hard. But currently, it’s the only way to move science forward.
Let me know if you would like to hear more about my research life, what has gone into it thus far, how I got here and where I hope to go!
And don’t forget, as @drjrutland said in a recent post - mentors are everything. They move medicine forward - and without both strong career AND research mentorship - I would NOT be where I am today.

TWO THOUSAND AND NINETEEN WHAT THE FUCK IS UP!!!🤗 (insert generic dj horns “BEW BEW BEW BEEEWWWW!”) First post of the year after taking some time off to recalibrate and assess and I feel great! I love to do yearly recap videos for you but mainly for self reflection. Its helps to stop and look up from this daily grind to appreciate how far we’ve come. That was the lesson I learned from 2018. This life of a creative is not a means to an end. Success isn’t a defined location which can only be accessed by holding your breathe waiting for an award, a number of streams, or a leading role to exhale. Life is about the continuous reach and fulfillment is just an inevitable consequence to all that stretching. In 2018 I performed... ALOT, I had the opportunity to be a member of The Nike Womens Marathon Project with a group of incredibly talented and inspiring women who made me cry, laugh, dance and run faster, longer... I headlined my first self produced show in LA #Sip&DripLA then my first self produced tour #ThePullUpTour in LA, Chicago & New York and 3 of the 6 dates SOLD OUT... I got the opportunity to be in 2 of my closest friends beautiful weddings, I shot 2 films and started production on a soon to come Documentary... I went to the Soul Train awards and was remind by @erykahbadu performance why music is so magical. I spent hours on the phone with my brothers debating random topics and with my friends. I watched wonderful movies, I watched terrible movies and laughed. I met new friends and reinforced relationships that will last forever. I lived. Hope if you get anything from me, you get that lesson that took me too long to learn. Life is happening right not whether you acknowledge it or not... so you better start living it. Plant your seed, water your garden, and tend to the weeds... but for the love God, don’t forget the best part; the rose smelling part... the good stuff ❤️ #iAmLyric#NWMP#PullUpTour#LyricMichelle#hiphop#actressla#music#life#newyear#NewMindsetWhoDis
