Charlene Seale is a certified nurse practitioner at the Thomas E. Creek VA Medical Center in Amarillo.
“I felt very fortunate,” Seale was quoted as saying, about being chosen as the state’s first NP to have full practice authority. “So now we are working with the other 31 nurse practitioners to put them through that same application process and hope to have them through the process by the end of the summer.”
The article went on to say that “though the private sector in Texas is not eligible to grant full practice authority to NPs, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs gave its healthcare systems the ability to do so in December 2016. The Amarillo VA Healthcare System was the first to take this step.”
