A Day In the Life: Meet Chelsea Rogerson, NP-PHC

I work as a primary health care nurse practitioner (family all ages) for Health PEI. I graduated from UPEI with my BScN in 2006, from Lakehead University with an NP-PHC certificate in 2013, and from Athabasca University with a Master of Nursing: Nurse Practitioner in 2015. I decided to return to school and do my NP after working as an Advanced Practice Nurse in Northern Manitoba.

I have a roster of approximately 500 clients in which I am the primary health care provider; I also provide overflow care for the clients of my three collaborating physicians. Additional to this, I provide care on an as needed basis for unaffiliated clients. On a typical day, I see between 20-32 clients in the clinic. My day consists of pre-booked appointments, follow-ups, and same-day appointments that range from fifteen minutes to one hour, depending on the clients concern. My practice is based out of the Murphy’s Parkdale Medical Centre
