Legal Questions from Nurse Practitioners AnsweredDec 21, 2020
⭐️ CME Opportunity for this video below ⭐️
It’s hard not to worry about malpractice when you’re taking on new levels of responsibility as a new nurse practitioner.
Irnise Williams is not only a health law lawyer, she now focuses on the education and legal work to help prevent malpractice cases in the first place.
AAAAAND she’s a nurse herself! Still taking care of patients as a covid float nurse while also running her legal practice, she’s truly a unicorn.
She and I sat down and discussed the questions nurse practitioners and students had in the Real World NP community!
