A Message From the Convenient Care SPG Co-chairs

Kris Diggins, DNP, MBA, FAANP, CNE, NEA-BC, DCC

The convenient/urgent care setting is focused on accessible high-quality health care in the communities where our patients reside. Through this vision and focused approach to access and quality, constant innovation provides new solutions to the challenges our patients face in their case. As advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) in this practice setting, we look to support one another in such an innovative practice model, improving access one patient a time.

Catherine Tuorto, NP-C

Convenient/urgent care is often considered the bridge between traditional physicians and emergency rooms. There is a multitude of employment opportunities available for APRNs in this field. The convenient/urgent care SPG is a great place for networking and collaborating with other practitioners.
