⭐️ CME Opportunity for this podcast below ⭐️ 

When it comes to cellulitis, there’s a lot to think about. Most of the new nurse practitioners that I mentor have the textbook knowledge and the clinical judgment, but there are a few steps to connect the dots in real world practice.

In this video, you’ll learn:

  • The clinical manifestations to watch out for (and red flags)
  • How to know who to keep outpatient vs send to the ER
  • What factors to keep in mind with your decision-making
  • The real world picture of managing someone with cellulitis & erysipelas
