More than Doctors at the VA
DVA is the largest employer of Nurse Practitioners in the nation. As a Nurse Practitioner in Primary Care I manage the diabetic patient with hypertension, hyperlipidemia and much more. Nurse Practitioners are held accountable for the same guidelines as the MDs, please include us in the VA's noted progress as well.
