“I find almost all interactions with my patients enjoyable and fulfilling. That is why I furthered my nursing education and specialized as an Internal Medicine Nurse Practitioner.  That is not to say some interactions are not more challenging than others because they certainly are. However, working alongside patients daily to meet their healthcare goals and overcome healthcare challenges is remarkable. When all of these decisions lead to good healthcare outcomes for the patient, and they are satisfied with their care, especially when they took an active part in the plan, there is no better feeling. I could not picture myself doing anything other than this.”
