Advanced practice nursing has been the focus of Pat Clinton's professional career for the past 16 years. As a pediatric nurse practitioner she believes that the utilization of nurse practitioners is part of the solution to spiraling health care costs and indifferent managed care systems. Pat has taught and directed the PNP program since 1990 and continues to keep her skills sharp doing public health well child clinics. In 2006, she became president of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Associates & Practitioners (NAPNAP ) and has served as a board member and president of the National Certification Board of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and Nurses.
