I am an adult and geriatric acute care nurse practitioner (AG-ACNP) working in rural hospital medicine. When I started this website, I was new to the field. I posted several podcast episodes and then quickly realized that everything I wrote was obsolete within a year. Fast forward to now. I have eight years of hospitalist nurse practitioner experience under my belt and am now returning to school to obtain my certification as a psychiatric and mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP). I do not know for sure what I want to do with the additional degree, in the future. I want more knowledge for the sake of knowledge. I like the idea of having my options wide-open. I love to write, and I am doing a lot of it in school again. It suddenly occurred to me that I have this platform to post my work. It is wordy. Maybe it will never be obsolete. It encompasses my thoughts about medicine and the history and social policies that affect it. I write to decide on my opinions. I write to clarify and organize. I write to make sense of this field and my life.
