HIV Nurse Practitioner sought! Get psyched!


I've already told you how great I think Kate is. Or, alluded to the greatness somewhat obliquely. So, here is a job posting she sent me. And hey, it's a nursing job! Advanced practice and HIV-related. So exciting. Are you this person? Do you know this person? Do you wish you knew this person? Yes, you do. (Maybe someday I'll be this person. But I'm not yet, so it's up to you!)

Here is the preface from Kate:
