Becoming a Local or Long Distance Patient as outlined below allows you that access.  In order to be part of our Long Distance Patient program, you would purchase an annual membership for $200. This membership includes an initial 30 minute phone appointment with me or one of our practitioners. At that time, the practitioner will make a recommendation to you for diet modifications, supplements and the quantities that you should take. After the phone call, you are able to order supplements for a year, as needed, directly from our website and our app. We will then promptly ship the supplements out to you.  Follow up phone calls with your practitioner are $125 for a 20 minute phone or skype appointment.  If you would like to move forward and take advantage of this opportunity, please call: (734) 302-7575 or email intake@thenhcaa.com to schedule, and make the $200 payment.

Scope of practice regulation and health care reform | LIVE STREAM
One reason health care costs so much is because seeing a doctor is expensive. Seeing a doctor is expensive because becoming a doctor is expensive and time-consuming, and medical school weeds out all but the most determined and skilled. But what if we could get more of our medical care from trained health care professionals who are not doctors, such as nurses and nurse practitioners? Do states’ “scope of practice” laws unnecessarily drive up health care costs and deny opportunity to nurses? Or are they needed to protect patients? Are common-sense consensus reforms available?

DEA Prevents Nursing Home Patients From Getting Pain Medication, Survey Says
On the day of his Capitol Hill testimony, Ross Brickley, president of CCRx of NC, Inc. and former president of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, founder of the Quality Care Coalition for Patients in Pain (QCCPP), explains how and to what extent DEA rules affect patients in nursing facilities, and focuses on long-term care, and those receiving hospice services. He shares with us a haunting study conducted by the QCCPP, that shows nearly two thirds of physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, nurses and other clinicians say that DEA procedures are resulting in delays in getting pain medication to their patients. In Ohio, where DEA has been most active, 86 percent of respondents indicated that treatment has been delayed.

"Emerging Trends in Health Care"
March 25, 2015 The 2015 Spring Presidential Lecture Series “Emerging Trends in Health Care” a lecture by Mary Ann Rosa, RN, MSN, GNP Associate Professor, Nursing Queensborough Community College Lecture Summary According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), life expectancy is increasing every year. Longevity and lifestyle are contributing to the growth of chronic illnesses. Chronic conditions have replaced acute diseases as leading causes of both morbidity and mortality. This change has economic implications for our nation. Our nation has been charged with improving quality care, while decreasing costs. This drives community health care organizations to team with hospital based institutions, to improve transitional care and continuity of care across health care settings. There are several national initiatives to deal with the increase in chronic illnesses, improve transitional care and decrease avoidable hospitalizations, which improve clinical outcomes and decrease costs. Evidence based practice and patient centered care, incorporated into disease management programs, are at the forefront of these initiatives. When used efficiently technology can decrease costs, and Telehealth has been identified as a priority to meet and improve quality patient care. Mary Ann Rosa is an Associate Professor of Nursing at Queensborough Community College and a Gerontological Nurse Practitioner. She is a consultant for North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System and serves on a task force charged with decreasing readmissions and improving health outcomes. In 2000, Professor Rosa was inducted into the Nursing Center of Excellence at North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System for her work in community health care. She developed a Heart Failure Community Disease Management Program, a Telehealth Program and co-developed a Diabetes Community Disease Management Program. Professor Rosa implemented Telehealth into the Nursing Program at Queensborough Community College and assisted two CUNY Schools of Nursing in implementing Telehealth into their Programs. Professor Rosa has published journal articles, conducted faculty workshops and presented locally and nationally on disease / health management, improving patient adherence, decreasing avoidable hospitalizations and implementing Telehealth. In 2014 she presented “Preventing Readmissions in Older Adults with Multiple Co-morbidities,” at the National Association of Home Care, and “Telehealth: An Excellent Teaching Strategy,” at the National League of Nursing Summit. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge with nursing students and being part of a team that graduates competent nurses in an evolving, technology driven, community health care system.

Millions Of Patients 'Unable To See GPs'
More than 34 million patients will fail to get an appointment with their GP this year, according to figures seen by Sky News. The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) used official NHS statistics to estimate the number of patients who will be unable to see a GP or practice nurse because surgeries are too busy. It believes patients have to look after themselves, try again at a later date, or seek medical attention at walk-in centres or A&E. And it warns some conditions may get worse as a result. Latest figures from the GP Patient Survey, which is carried out by NHS England, show one in 10 patients is unable to see a GP or practice nurse when they need to. Doctors warn of a lack of access to GPs And with general practice now offering 340 million appointments a year, the Royal College estimates that 34 million will miss out. That is a rise of 3.4 million since the survey a year earlier, which showed 9% reported they were unable to book an appointment. Dr Maureen Baker, chair of the RCGP, told Sky News care is being compromised. "People do need to see a GP as soon as possible for right action to be taken and the right treatment to be delivered," she said. "And this is a worry we have: that the lack of access to GPs might be making some problems worse." The College blames a real terms funding cut of £9bn for GP services since 2004/05, leaving surgeries unable to hire the staff they need to meet rising demand. It says GPs have already provided an extra 40 million appointments, but are now struggling. The RCGP is calling for more funding for GPs Dr Baker warned: "The unprecedented decline in funding for healthcare in the community has brought general practice to its knees. GPs can't keep doing more for less." The RCGP and the National Association for Patient Participation are urging the Government and NHS England to increase GPs' share of the budget to 11% by 2017 - up from 8.5% now. The concerns were echoed by Dr Peter Swinyard, chair of the Family Doctor Association and a GP in Swindon. "We can't give a gold-plated service to all of our patients on a share of the resources which is dropping so significantly," he said. "We have had a 25% cut in resources in general practice to look after patients who are sicker, who are more complex, and who are taking more of our time and attention. Something has got to give." By switching to a GP-callback system his practice has reduced the number of patients who need a face-to-face appointment. That has helped to deal with rising demand, but it's not a long term solution, Dr Swinyard said. It is estimated 34 million people will not get a GP appointment this year Susannah Fernandez, who brought in her two-year-old daughter Olivia because of a chest infection, said waiting times at the surgery were long. "There used to be days when you could queue outside," she said. "Waiting in the cold was not ideal. And then it would be pot luck what time you were seen. "Obviously children get bored quite quickly too, so waiting in a waiting room was not ideal." But the Department of Health dismissed the RCGP's claims. A spokesperson said: "It's complete nonsense to suggest that 34 million people won't be able to get an doctor's appointment this year. "Misleading extrapolations of partial data have been used to generate a sensationalist headline. "The GP Survey showed the vast majority of patients are satisfied with their GP and rated their experience of making an appointment as good." The Department of Health is providing £50m to help modernise general practices and allow them to stay open longer.

Emergency Medicine: Innovations in Patient Safety
2:54 minutes. Roneet Lev, MD, FACEP, chief of the emergency medicine department at Scripps Mercy in San Diego, California, describes changes her department made to improve patient safety based on the data and recommendations in The Doctors Company’s Emergency Medicine Closed Claims Study. First, the study identified the need for rapid recognition of stroke patients and treatment for tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). Dr. Lev’s hospital system now takes stroke patients straight to a CAT scan without stopping at an emergency department bed, and the entire stroke team is activated. Second, many patients are on blood thinners, which can lead to complications in the epidural space with neurological implications. Now any patient on blood thinners is considered a potential risk for bleeding anywhere in the body. Third, physician assistants and nurse practitioners in emergency medicine settings often handle wound care—an area of risk. Now any wound with a tendon injury has to be explored by a physician before closing the wound. Fourth, discharge instructions are emphasized to identify the patient’s responsibilities. The Doctors Company, the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer, regularly issues industry-leading closed claims studies that alert specialists to common risks and help them identify ways to improve patient safety.

T2DM: Diabetes and Indigenous Australians
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians have the fourth highest rate of type 2 diabetes in the world. It is estimated that between 10 and 30 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have the disease. This rate is around four times higher than that for non-Indigenous Australians. Type 2 diabetes represents a major public health problem for Indigenous Australians with a much earlier age of onset and the risk of developing diabetes related complications resulting in a significant burden of disease in terms of mortality, hospitalisations and a range of financial and human costs. The death rate in Indigenous communities is believed to be up to 17 times higher than that of non-Indigenous Australians, mainly due to high levels of cardiovascular disease and kidney disease associated with diabetes. Complications include a higher risk of heart attack or stroke, eye disease, kidney disease and nerve damage, which may result in traumatic injury, infection and possible limb amputation. Chronic diseases such as diabetes and those related to it account for 59% of the difference in mortality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, making it imperative for health services to adopt a comprehensive and culturally appropriate response to risk factors and management in primary health care. This program explores the question of how diabetes can be prevented in Indigenous communities and the issues around diet, obesity, physical activity, poor living conditions and low socioeconomic status. It focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to the detection and diagnosis of diabetes. The program also examines evidence based approaches to the management of diabetes, hypoglycaemic control and diabetes-related complications among Indigenous Australians. The program is part four in the series on type 2 diabetes and the NHMRC endorsed Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Clinical Guidelines. This program is introduced by the Hon Warren Snowdon, MP, Minister for Indigenous Health, Rural and Regional Health and Regional Services Delivery.

No Sex Marriage – Masturbation, Loneliness, Cheating and Shame | Maureen McGrath | TEDxStanleyPark
Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today? Maureen McGrath - nursetalk@hotmail.com - hosts the Sunday Night Sex Show on News Talk 980 CKNW.

Preventing Infections When Monitoring Blood Glucose
FDA and CDC are alerting healthcare professionals about the risks of transmitting hepatitis B virus (HBV) and other infectious diseases when monitoring blood glucose. In recent years, the FDA and CDC have seen an increase in reported HBV outbreaks associated with monitoring blood glucose. That is especially the case in long-term care settings, such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities, where residents often need someone to help monitor their blood glucose levels. But this risk exists in any setting where blood glucose monitoring equipment is shared, or where those performing the monitoring do not follow basic infection control practices. This includes acute care facilities, as well as clinics, health fairs, shelters, detention facilities, senior centers, schools, and camps. Reusable fingerstick lancing devices should never be used for more than one person to avoid the risk of transmitting bloodborne pathogens. But the glucose meters themselves can also pose an infection risk because it is hard to ensure that blood has been completely removed from these devices. For example, a multicenter survey published in 2005 showed that 30 percent of blood glucose meters used routinely in the surveyed hospitals had detectable blood on their surfaces. So FDA and CDC recommend that whenever possible, blood glucose meters should be used for one patient only. If that is not possible, clean and disinfect the meters after every use according to the meter's labeling to prevent carry-over of blood and infectious agents. Even when following these precautions, be sure to wash hands and change gloves between patients. It is also important to remember that these recommendations apply to other point-of-care testing devices, such as PT/INR anticoagulation meters and cholesterol testing devices.

Mary Ellen Turpel Lafond: Listening to the marginalized to address inequality
Children and youth are among the most vulnerable of society's citizens, with those in government care having a further series of risks. In Canada, our Aboriginal children and youth are among the most at risk. More Aboriginal children are in government care in comparison to other children. Fewer Aboriginal children graduate from high school than their non-Aboriginal counterparts. And, too many Aboriginal children live in poverty, become involved with the youth justice system and suffer from intergenerational impacts of residential schools. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond's goal is that all young people in British Columbia have the same opportunities for success. Her Big Thinking presentation will examine how Aboriginal children, youth and their families have become marginalized, and look at what can be done to ensure that this population @ the edge is heard and this inequality addressed. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond is President of the Canadian Council of Child and Youth Advocates, an alliance of provincial advocates from across the country who champion the voice and rights of children. She was appointed B.C.'s first Representative for Children and Youth in November 2006 and has worked as a criminal law judge in youth and adult courts, with an emphasis on developing partnerships to better serve the needs of young people in the justice system, particularly sexually exploited children and youth and those with disabilities.

The CDME certification demonstrates the broad knowledge of the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) industry. What does a Certified DME Specialist do? The CDME basically does every aspect within the DME realm.  They are the people who meet the patients, do the documentation, fit the patients, determine what product the patient is eligible for and bills Medicare, Medicaid and the insurance companies for DME products.  The also help with basic repairs, troubleshooting, and home inspections for DME products like oxygen, transfer systems, enteral supplies, and wound care. A trained and certified DME specialists are highly valued in the DME industry as an assurance to patients and referral sources of professionalism and quality care. The BOC CDME Scope of Practice provides greater detail regarding the role of a BOC Certified DME Specialist. Jeff, I really haven’t heard about this before, so what advantage does a pharmacy or DME supplier gain by having a CDME on staff? This is simple.  We live in a very competitive market.  We need to ensure the pharmacy has unique qualities and products outside the normal pharmacy prescription filling process.  Those days have come and gone.  We have talked about immunizations and diabetic shoes in previous podcasts.  We will talk about other opportunities in future podcasts.  Pharmacists are experts in pharmacy operations.  When it comes to Medicare Part B and DMEPOS products, the rules are completely different.  For example, a physician writes a prescription or eScript and the pharmacist fills the script, the patient picks the medication up and pays their co-pay.  The insurance company and secondary adjudicate the claim and reimburse you for it.  Hopefully there is a low dollar DIR fee so the PBM claw back isn’t too severe next month. However, when it comes to Medicare Part B, everything changes when the physician writes a prescription.  The pharmacy language stops working.  So you look for someone who can do this work.  What do most pharmacies do? You grab a tech and throw them into this world and let them try to figure it out.  The tech starts reading reading Medicare Supplier Manuals, DME MACs and then learns about Detailed Written Orders and Local Coverage Determination and this doesn’t make sense.  Again the language has changed and there really is only limited training out there for dispensing or billing these products.  This is why the CDME certification was created.  It certifies individuals who have the basic skills for dispensing, setup and billing Medicare Part B and DMEPOS products. That makes sense.  I have heard about all the audits from Medicare and all the paperwork that is needed.  Jeff, you and I talked about the Diabetic Shoes April 2017 on an earlier podcast last year about the importance of the documentation and following the process.  So this certification helps the pharmacy? Absolutely.  When you are confused about something or you are losing money and audits, you stop dispensing that item.  This is what has happen with DME products.  Over 40% of DME facilities have gone out of business in the last six years due to competitive bidding.  Pharmacies have dropped DME products because of the bad taste of audits and not understanding the process. Now imagine having staff properly trained and certified who know what they are doing when it comes to Medicare Part B and DMEPOS products.  They can advise the pharmacist not to fill a prescription of albuterol because it needs a “Detailed Written Order Prior to Delivery” signed by the physician.  Who knew?  Your CDME did.  That saves your reimbursement. Whoa, is it that simple? Yes.  Now you are ready to market your pharmacy.  Your pharmacy may be accredited or exempt.  Your pharmacists are licensed.  Are you doing something out of the ordinary to make you stand out?  Your DME department has “board certified” specialists.  Who else in town has this? Here are some other advantages. Differentiation in the market; Management of risk; Criteria for evaluating potential employees; Limiting of fraud, waste, and abuse; Increase in customer satisfaction; Assurance for referral sources; and Medicare human resources management standards require that technical personnel be knowledgeable, competent, and trained in order to deliver products. A CDME will provide additional assurance of compliance.  How do you get...
It Depends What State You’re In: Policies and Politics of the US Health Care System | Part 1
Health care and political systems are deeply intertwined, with implications for the quality and equality of access to health care. This symposium explores the political dynamics of health care laws and the way they affect people not only as patients but also as citizens. Health professionals, policy and public health experts, economists, sociologists, and political scientists draw on comparative politics and policies of the states—alone and as part of a federalist system—and on international perspectives to explore the relationships between citizens and their health care.

CVS Caremark Charitable Trust Awards 21 "Innovations in Community Health" Grants
Woonsocket, RI, April 24, 2013 /3BL Media/ - The CVSCaremark Charitable Trust, a private foundation created by CVSCaremark Corporation (NYSE: CVS) today announced the recipients of the "Innovations in Community Health" grants, which have been awarded to community health centers nationwide through a partnership with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). The grants will help community health centers increase access to quality health care and produce better health outcomes while reducing costs for patients and healthcare systems. The grants, which total more than $1 million, have been awarded to 21 community health centers to support the development of innovative, community-based programs and initiatives that focus on the treatment and management of chronic illnesses, specifically heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and asthma. "Today, community health centers are providing affordable health care services to more than 22 million patients in more than 9,000 locations throughout the country," said Tom Van Coverden, President and CEO of the National Association of Community Health Centers. "Through our partnership with the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, we are able to work with the 'Innovations in Community Health' grant recipients to not only help them provide their local communities with access to innovative and high quality health care but also educate the public on how they can prevent and manage chronic diseases." More than half of Americans suffer from one or more chronic diseases every year and chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. A survey released today by CVS Caremark could explain why. "The CVS Caremark Chronic Disease Awareness Survey" reveals the public's misconception and understanding of chronic diseases, with the majority of respondents admitting that they are not doing as much as they could to stay healthy. Twenty-eight percent of respondents think there is little they can do to prevent most chronic diseases, yet modifiable health risk behaviors, including lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption, contribute most to the exacerbation of chronic diseases. Additional insights include: Nearly forty percent of people think what they eat has little to do with whether they get a chronic disease. Approximately thirty-two percent of people think smoking does not have an effect on chronic diseases beyond lung cancer. The survey also showed that while a majority of people agree that reducing stress, exercising, improving their diet or regularly visiting a doctor can help prevent chronic diseases, more than half of people admit they are not doing much to prevent them. Sixty percent of respondents are aware they should take steps to reduce stress in their daily lives but do not. Nearly sixty-five percent of people are aware they should exercise regularly, but they do not. More than half of people admit they do not take the steps they should to improve their diet. "Chronic diseases impact everyone and the number of people living with a chronic disease is expected to increase over the next decade. The results from the 'Chronic Disease Awareness Survey' show that many of us do not know the contributors of the most common chronic diseases," said Larry Merlo, President and CEO, CVS Caremark. "Community health centers play a critical role in both helping to educate the public on health-related issues and increasing access to high quality health care services that can help manage and prevent chronic diseases." While changes in our health care system will qualify millions of more people for health coverage, it's still a challenge for many to find quality care that could help manage -- even prevent -- many chronic diseases. "Through our partnership with NACHC, we are providing much-needed funding to support affordable community-based health care models that are producing innovative programming in the area of chronic disease management," said Eileen Howard Boone, President, CVS Caremark Charitable Trust. "The programs will use a variety of methods to help people manage their chronic disease and improve health outcomes -- including the use of tele-medicine, nurse practitioners to monitor at-risk patients and wellness circles that bring people together who are living with and working to manage the same chronic disease."

       Centering Wellness
Centering Wellness, a biweekly community based support group, focused on healthy lifestyle promotion (nutrition education and physical activity). It was created to meet the needs of residents of a community in Chicago, Illinois that is predominantly, low income African American with high rates of chronic disease. As a public health nurse I have been working in this community for four years to determine the assets and obstacles to increasing fitness and healthy eating. Focus groups and interviews with Austin residents revealed that key facilitators to healthier lives include: access to fitness facility and healthy food, fitness coaches, tasting healthy food, and most importantly, having people they could talk to about weight loss. The support group covers these topics and activities: daily barriers and benefits to exercising and healthy eating, perceptions of healthy eating, improving friends and family's health, cooking demonstrations, healthier fast food alternatives, eating on the go, healthy eating on a budget, grocery shopping tour, and the relationship between improper nutrition and physical fitness and cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Participation rates have continued to increase. Participants have reported decreases in HbA1c, blood pressure, weight loss, improved self esteem, positive impact on family and friends and overall satisfaction with the progress made. There is a need for innovative programs at the community level. When the community can easily access resources and build upon the strengths within themselves and their community, they are more likely to have healthier lifestyles and thus improve their health outcomes.

Chronic Disease Management in General Practice through GPMPs and TCAs
https://practicenursecentral.com.au/chronic-disease-management Chronic disease management is a rapidly growing area in Australia and in general practice. The main vehicle to provide chronic disease care is what is know as care plans or GP Management Plans (GPMPs) and Team Care Arrangements (TCAs). These items, when used correctly, have the potential to drastically improve the care and quality of life of patients with chronic conditions. These plans also attract much higher Medicare rebates, even when bulk billed, which is why many practices have become increasingly more engaged in performing these services, which help the practice be more financially viable. What are GP Management Plans (GPMPs)? GP Management Plans provide funding for General Practice to create a plan to manage the care of a patient with a chronic condition. A GPMP should include: • A discussion with the patient around their health needs or any current health problems • Setting health goals or targets for treatment • Outlining what services will be provided by the practice or by other external providers • Outlining the responsibilities or 'actions' the patient agrees to take to help reach their health goals • Setting a date of review to get together again and track changes or progress towards their goals What are Team Care Arrangements (TCAs)? Team Care Arrangements are used for patients who have a chronic condition and needs which are so complex that there is the need for a 'multidisciplinary team'. This refers to a range of different providers from different health disciplines, usually involving 2 or more providers in addition to the usual GP, with one or more of these providers usually being an Allied Health clinician. The Medicare and 'audit' requirements around these items can be complex. We've put together a set of training courses to help demystify them and to allow you to easily navigate your way around them. Check out our free course: Introduction to GP Management Plans (GPMPs) and Team Care Arrangements (TCAs) which includes information on the relevant item numbers and resources you'll need in practice

Smoking: An Indigenous Health Challenge
Tobacco use is a major preventable contributor to the gap in life expectancy between Indigenous Australians and other Australians. Much of this gap is due to smoking related diseases such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease and cancer. Nearly half of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults smoke compared to less than one fifth of other adults. Smoking prevalence is higher in remote areas. The challenge for health practitioners and communities is to develop innovative and effective ways of addressing tobacco use in Indigenous communities. Research is still needed to ascertain the most appropriate interventions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Strategies to combat smoking need to acknowledge the historical, cultural, and socio-economic factors influencing its use, as well as the individual psychological, physical and behavioural factors. This program assists health practitioners with the knowledge and understanding to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people quit smoking. A range of interventions to both help prevent tobacco use and assist Indigenous Australians to quit are examined. The Hon Warren Snowdon MP, Minister for Indigenous Health introduces the program.

Pharmacists CareerSearch.com
Career Search Pharmacists Pharmacists distribute prescription drugs to individuals. They also advise their patients, as well as physicians and other health practitioners, on the selection, dosages, interactions, and side effects of medications. Pharmacists monitor the health and progress of patients to ensure the safe and effective use of medication. Compounding—the actual mixing of ingredients to form medications—is a small part of a pharmacists practice, because most medicines are produced by pharmaceutical companies in a standard dosage and drug delivery form. Most pharmacists work in a community setting, such as a retail drugstore, or in a health care facility, such as a hospital, nursing home, mental health institution, or neighborhood health clinic. Pharmacists in community pharmacies dispense medications, counsel patients on the use of prescription and over-the-counter medications, and advise physicians about patients medication therapy. They also advise patients about general health topics such as diet, exercise, and stress management, and provide information on products such as durable medical equipment or home health care supplies. In addition, they may complete third-party insurance forms and other paperwork. Those who own or manage community pharmacies may sell non-health-related merchandise, hire and supervise personnel, and oversee the general operation of the pharmacy. Some community pharmacists provide specialized services to help patients with conditions such as diabetes, asthma, smoking cessation, or high blood pressure; others also are trained to administer vaccinations.Work environment. Pharmacists work in clean, well-lighted, and well-ventilated areas. Many pharmacists spend most of their workday on their feet. When working with sterile or dangerous pharmaceutical products, pharmacists wear gloves, masks, and other protective equipment.Median annual of wage-and-salary pharmacists in May 2006 were $94,520. The middle 50 percent earned between $83,180 and $108,140 a year. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $67,860, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $119,480 a year. CareerSearch.com
