Over the past month I have had some very challenging
patients. I will often question, why and how did someone end up here at the

As all PAs and NPs know, there is never a dull week! Our readers were buzzing across social media and our homepage as the latest news in healthcare came out.
On Facebook, one reader gave practical advice to our blogger who recently lost a supervisor. After forming a strong relationship with her collaborating physician, our blogger Beverly missed ...
