I still look forward to going to work everyday. As a nurse practitioner I have an expanded role that gives me the opportunity to influence the patients I see, by assisting them with their urgent needs as well as educating them in the prevention of illness and injury.
She was so personable. All of our concerns I felt were heard. I didn't feel like we were rushed.”
