Making Mistakes

I’ve been working independently as a PNP for 3 years now and I think I’m getting pretty good at it. I have a panel of 600 patients and see some 16-20 families every day. I pride myself in getting thorough histories and providing holistic care.

Today I made a mistake. It wasn’t my first and it won’t be my last. It’s frightening when it happens. I am responsible for keeping my patients healthy, but when I am not at the top of my game, I put someone’s life in danger.
