Nurse Practitioner Week celebrated along the Coast
This week, Memorial Health System in Gulfport is celebrating National Nurse Practitioner Week until November 19th.
Nurse practitioners at Memorial take on a lot of roles including helping with primary care, running walk-in clinics, working alongside physicians and so much more.
As of today, Memorial has more than 200 nurse practitioners staffed along the Coast.
Memorial Advanced Practice Director Anne Musgrove says she could not have been more proud of being part of this team over the past couple of years and believes it’s the best group of nurse practitioners across the Coast. “During Covid, it was my walk-in and primary care nurse practitioner team that really rose to the challenge. We had physician leaders, of course involved in that, but if you came through one of our COVID lines, and you were treated, it was likely by one of our nurse practitioner teams.”
There are currently more than 335,000 licensed NPs in the U.S.
