Having worked as an emergency/trauma nurse has helped me pick out critical patient presentations and knowing when the emergency department is needed over urgent care. It gave me the rapid critical thinking skills to succeed as a nurse practitioner in the urgent care setting.
I believe the patient’s deepest concern always comes first. Diving down and finding out “why” the medical concern is occurring will ultimately lead to the best patient outcome and healing.
Patients can expect a detailed listener and a persistent attitude for advocation, all while making them feel comfortable and happy during their visit."
