Where’s My Primary-Care Physician or Any Nurse When I Need One?

Marlese Pinney, RN, MBA

This talk will discuss nursing, including the various levels of training and qualifications, and some critical issues confronting the profession. We will look at the shortage of primary-care physicians and how advanced practice roles, including Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant, fill the gap. If you live in the wrong area of the country, your doctor may not see you now.
