​“Now, nurses can choose career tracks such as clinical, education, IT and research.   Clinical nurses like Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) and Resident Nurses are actively involved in the clinical management of patients.   With proper training, I believe APNs will be able to perform procedures like tracheostomy tube changes for outpatient, freeing up ENT doctors’ time to attend to other patients.”
