Welcome to ask the nurse practitioner! This blog is intended to provide general health information on a variety of topics relevant to adult and pediatric health. I am a family nurse practitioner currently practicing in a pediatric emergency medicine setting. I know that time is limited when you see your provider and you often have questions that go unanswered. This is where I come in! I invite you to send me your questions or comments and I will answer them on the blog.. and if I can't answer it I can help point you in the right direction.
