Nurses – The Keepers of Patients Stories: An Interview with Angela Patterson DNP, FNP-BC, NEA-BC

We all have interesting stories to share about our journey in nursing. Dr. Angela Patterson, the Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer of CVS MinuteClinic and Vice President of CVS Health knew from a young age that she wanted to be a nurse. Her career has evolved through the years, with transitions from medical/surgical nursing to later becoming a family practice nurse practitioner and co-owning a family medical practice, to her current role at CVS, as well as chairing the board for a charter high school for underprivileged high school students who wish to go into nursing.
