I have been working since June 2020 as a nurse practitioner within the Valeriusplein general practice.
Before that I worked at several GP’s. In 2017 I graduated from a Master’s program as a nurse practitioner.
Before I started working as a nurse practitioner, I worked for a long time as an emergency nurse at Airport Medical Services, the First Aid Centre at Schiphol Airport. Furthermore I worked at the health centre of a reception centre for asylum seekers.
A nurse specialist offers nursing and medical care: it is authorized to independently diagnose the use of treatments and prescribe medication for common complaints.
Unfortunately it happens frequently that our patient don’t show up for their appointments. Because of this we can’t see other patients who need a consultation. We want to reduce this, we will charge the consultation from the second appointment on which patients do not appear.
Appointments with your General Practicioner you can cancel up to 24 hours in advance.
Appointments with our GGZ-nurse you have to cancel 48 hours in advance, because of a long waiting list.
