Retail Clinic Use Growing Rapidly http://tinyurl.com/9e4jh9y (Free access for two weeks).'' The article highlights the benefits of convenient care, such as longer hours.

I have admittedly been remiss in submitting blogs in a
timely manner and actually have a deadline of 5 pm today! Me, Miss OCD! How
could this happen?

have time to breathe -- average patient seen 25 to 30, from STD exams to
primary care. And since I decided to take full advantage of ...

much I love being a nurse practitioner. I have enjoyed the opportunities I have

job at the Martin County Health Department and my little satellite clinic in
Oak City. As mentioned in previous posts, the Oak City Clinic was renovated
from a little firehouse by a $56,000 grant from the GoldenLeaf Foundation.
There was little money for necessary accoutrements so ...
After reading my fellow colleague Elizabeth's
blog I decided to tackle my grief. You see, my best friend and boyfriend of
11 years passed away last month. He was the reason I decided to pursue a career
as a nurse practitioner and he was my biggest cheerleader. When I doubted

Here I sit in my
newly decorated office, a bit after 4PM, pondering my good fortune! It has been a little over a month since I've
gone ''solo'' and things couldn't be better. It feels as if I've been here
