As the healthcare provider shortage crisis looms, nurse practitioners offer the high-quality, cost-effective, patient-centered services needed to help solve the increasing demand for healthcare in the United States.
Nurse practitioners are licensed, expert clinicians with advanced training who provide primary, acute and specialty healthcare services. They work as a partner with their patients, helping them make educated healthcare decisions on healthy lifestyle choices.
Adair County is fortunate to have three nurse practitioners on staff at the Adair County Medical Clinics. Kathleen Nelson, ARNP is located at the Fontanelle Clinic, Marvel Blazek, ARNP is at the Greenfield Clinic and Mary Jo Ytzen, and ARNP is at the Stuart Clinic.
National Nurse Practitioner Week (November 13th â€“ November 19th) is a time to celebrate these unique healthcare providers.
