DNP, RN, CPNP – I wish that my patients knew that my years as a pediatric nurse both general and in the ED at a level 1 trauma center, in addition to my education, have value. I am able to lay out an excellent treatment plan, there is nothing more insulting than being asked, “when is the doctor coming in?” When I ask if they have any further questions. “Nurse Kathy” does not hold enough clout.
