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!
