Day to Day

I start by getting up at 8:30 am, start seeing patients of a full schedule (18-20 patients) then transition into medicine and in-person visits. You can be taking care of people that are diabetic to get prescription or there for check-ups or physical exams, people come in for disability or any health issues. I coordinate patients through the process and the last patient is usually around 4:30.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Besides education, willingness to learn and take risks if you have to too. Push yourself outside of the box. Believe in the value of education, knowledge is something no one can ever take away from you. I really recommend sitting down with a career counselor and mapping out your path and find that mentor that will be your guide. Having a mentor helped the transition from student to nurse. Be flexible on the way because you develop new interests.

Hurdles

The Noise I Shed

From Myself:

"No, the discouragement from a nurse practitioner level, it's a lot of work, and sometimes the salary is not that great as per experience. When you transition from nursing to an advanced role there is a lot more responsibility. "
