In this photo taken Thursday, Feb 27, 2014, Patricia Briones, a nurse practitioner at the University of Miami, performs a physical assessment of fistula on patient Treaunna Hardaway, in Miami.

She sees her patients at least once a week and prescribes everything from antibiotics to blood pressure medication. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz) less
