How to Choose Which Oral Contraceptive Pill for New Nurse Practitioners

When it comes to choosing which oral contraceptive pill to prescribe, there are SO many options. How do you know which one is the right one? As a new nurse practitioner, you’ll usually get different recommendations from different providers. 

In this video I’ll be covering:

  • What criteria to consider when choosing
  • The two main routes to follow (and how to know which one to go down)

Plus, check out the resources I reference in this video to help you decide:
