Mark Anthony Gregorio, ANP-BC, have a Deep Dive conversation about culture shock, working in a culture that doesn’t know what NPs do, learning how to expand your formulary and the benefits of generosity.
Boldly going where other NPs go? I’ve met only a few nurse practitioners that have gone into global health and when I do– they tend to be CNMs. So I was thrilled when Mark Anthony Gregorio, ANP-BC (adult nurse practitioner) and I bumped into each other on Twitter.
For many, just getting through the gauntlet of training is enough of an “adventure” for many. I especially wanted to talk to Mark Gregario because he entered the global health route by doing a global health fellowship that was sponsored by his employer.
In our 5 min warm up interview we talk about his calling to join the health care field as a child in the Philippines and tangible tips for NPs interested in putting their toe in the waters of global health.
Our lively Deep Dive gets into
- The reality of working in a different culture
- Scoop on his global health fellowship
- How he fit into the health structure as a nurse practitioner (multiple hats)
- The benefits even one trip can have on your career
Excited? Catch up with him on Twitter: MarkGregorio_NP and read his blog posts from his last trip http://www.markanthonygregorio.blogspot.com.
