It seems that when you don't have any money, you manage to continually come across things you desperately want but can't justify. Today that's the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream vault. I cannot even begin to express to you how much I want that, but alas! Still no work.

That's not to say there hasn't been some progress, because oh mercy there HAS! Today the floodgates opened with the arrival of my prescriptive certificate number! I don't get the document in hand for a day or 2; it's going out from the Board of Nursing today in the mail, but the number is the thing! When I called the BoN this morning, they gave it to me, and I emailed CH, the credentialing coordinator. She asked if I had an NPI number, and I was extremely disheartened. I didn't even know it was required, but it's the unique provider number assigned by Medicare/Medicaid, so it's quite important for billing. I went online and applied, thinking I might get my number sometime next week...and behold. It came in an email 5 minutes later. Are you KIDDING ME? Nothing governmental has ever been that efficient. I still don't have a DEA #, but that's not prohibitive for practice. It just means I cannot yet prescribe Schedules III-V on my own; I have to get a collaborating physician to order it. That's not a problem in an ER, where you can't throw a rock without hitting a physician. I will apply for the DEA number and when it comes in, I can stop getting orders from collaborators.

After I got that done, CH submitted my credentialing application for approval, and not even 5 minutes later I got an email from Dr. Mc with instructions to get myself added to the group malpractice insurance policy. I did that. Then I got an email with 2 appointments at the hospital next Monday for orientations with 2 different departments. It's happening, folks!

In honor of my very good mood at such progress, have my new favorite song from Steven Universe!

In other news, I just figured out how to make my comments pages match my journal layout in mobile friendly mode! Yay!
