Expertise at the Bedside! April 1, 2013

Posted by mvarlan in Uncategorized.

Receiving care from a multidisciplinary team isn’t limited to physicians. Expertise at the bedside is crucial for the successful recovery of patients with pituitary disorders.  Nurses at Barrow have more experience and advanced education that any other neurological facility in Arizona. Physician assistants & nurse practitioners add another level of expertise to assist the patient’s nurse in resolving a patient’s symptom or unexpected events.

Deborah Shepherd, ACNP, is a nurse practitioner specializing in disorders of the pituitary gland at the Barrow Pituitary Center. She started at Barrow working as a nurse practitioner in the department of neurosurgery. Her interest in neurological disorders began while working in the trauma intensive care unit at University Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona.
