minor illness

i enjoyed this 2 day minor illness course. It was an enjoyable course and I have lean a lot with minor illness in preparation for the Advanced Nurse Practitioner course at University of Wolverhampton Masters course in April 2024. I am hoping to complete my competencies to enable me to successful enroll onto the ANP course with the prescribing.
