May 6th, the late nurse Florence Nightingale's birthday begins National Nurses Week!
This year is my 22nd year of practice as a registered nurse. For the past decade, I have also been a nurse practitioner certified in psychiatric/mental health care and specializing in the care of children and adolescents.
Occasionally someone will ask me if I miss being a nurse since becoming a nurse practitioner. I always have the same answer. Of course not because I'm still a nurse.
