Scrubs and leathers are interchangeable for family nurse practitioner
Health care can be a huge challenge for residents of rural Southern Oregon, where clinics and doctors can be miles from home. When you have income and health challenges too, and transportation is sporadic at best, getting health care can be beyond reach.
