Doctorate of Nursing Practice
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
Esther is continuing her Doctorate of Nursing Practice. She is getting the Palliative part of Evercare Hospice and Palliative Care up and running, and loves her job. Her patient population is comprised of mostly Medicare patients, with some uninsured as well, since the practice will take everyone, no matter what insurance or if they have none. Spending a year on the Western Slope solidified Esther’s plans after graduation to work with the underserved rural population. Esther plans to graduate in December 2012 and hopes to settle in a small, rural Colorado community, have her own practice, ride her horse to work and grow old taking care of her community as a health care provider.
