1 Liam wasn't feeling well. In fact, he felt sick all day. He waited to complain to the camp counselor. The counselor took Liam's temperature. He was indeed running a fever. The counselor contacted Liam's mother. With his symptoms of a fever, sore throat, headache, and stomachache, the camp counselor suggested his mom take him to the doctor.
2 It was late in the day already. Liam's mom called the doctor's office, hoping to get an appointment with his regular pediatrician. Unfortunately, the doctor was completely booked. The receptionist, though, said she could fit Liam in with the nurse practitioner. Liam's mother was hesitant.
3 "I don't know about that," Liam's mother said.
4 "She's perfectly qualified," the receptionist said. "I understand your apprehension. Many parents feel that way before they meet her. After that first visit, they are completely comfortable. I promise."
5 "What qualifications does she have?" Liam's mother asked.
6 "A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse who has added training in family practice or pediatrics. Our nurse practitioner, of course, specializes in pediatrics. All nurse practitioners have a master's degree in nursing. She is licensed to practice. She is a certified pediatric nurse practitioner (CPNP) because she passed the national board exam," the receptionist said. Then she added, "Does Liam still feel sick?"
7 "Of course," Liam's mother said.
8 "Then bring him in, Mrs. O'Connor," the receptionist said. "I promise you that if you are not happy, the doctor will see you."
