A WORLD AWAY NO LONGER
by Bob Carrejo
"Kelly Barth is a nurse practitioner who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. A 2001 graduate of Mullen High School in Denver, Colorado, Kelly’s special journey began with her decision to pursue a career as a nurse practitioner. Nurse practitioners are advanced practice nurses who, as she puts it, “have the compassion and knowledge of a bedside nurse but also the more extensive training and expertise in the particular field of practice which they specialize.” Her interest took her to the University of California at San Francisco, where she earned a master’s degree in nursing and, like her fellow graduates, looked forward to a bright and fulfilling future. It would come. But there would be more. Much more." Read the entire article... (pg.33)
