Last December, Shawn completed the Post Master’s Certificate for the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP). She is studying to take the certification exam in the next few months and then will be looking for employment as a PNP. This semester, she is taking Context of Practice, population and patient management. This is the course that initiates the DNP capstone project, which she will be doing with the asthma population in the San Luis Valley. Shawn’s anticipated graduation date has not changed. She is on track to graduate in May, 2012. At that point, she plans to return to Adams State College as full time faculty. Shawn is currently working part time as the Epilepsy rural outreach coordinator through the SLVAHEC office. She is also teaching Pharmacology this semester in the nursing program at Adams State College.
