Remember Then: A Very Different Role by Angela M. Staab, MN, ANP/GNP-C
Clinician Reviews will be asking editorial board members to share memories of their careers as nurse practitioners and physician assistants and what they experienced as the professions developed. We hope some of their anecdotes will entertain you, as well as provide perspective on how far the two professions have come in their more-than-40-year histories.
Our first “Remember Then” participant is Angie Staab, who has been an NP for almost 40 years.
