Hello allnurses! I am currently a FNP student and I am writing a research paper this week for my Roles class. Are there any practicing NPs out there that can answer some questions for me? I would be forever grateful. If you choose to answer, can you please include your first initial and last name so that I may cite you? If you don't feel comfortable answering here, please email me- email@example.com.
Thank you in advance!
