2 I The Lovell Chronicle I July 17, 2014 Frost re-joins staff at NBHH BY PATTI CARPENTER Family Nurse Practi- tioner Shelby Frost hit the ground running this week as a new provider at the clinic at North Big Horn Hospital. Frost, who began seeing patients on Monday, saw seven during her first day on the job. If Frost looks familiar to patients, it's because she worked as a regis- tered nurse at the hospital through most of her nurs- ing career, a period of about nine years, before return- ing to school at the Univer- sity of Mary in Bismarck, N.D. to get her master's de- gree and to become certified as an FNP. Frost said as a nurse practitioner, she is special- ly trained to provide ser- vices throughout the con- tinuum of a patient's life. She said that period of time is literally from before birth through the aging process. She is also qualified to treat patients like other provid- ers at the clinic and can write prescriptions. Dr. Jay is acting as her "collaborat- ing physician" and she said he has been extremely help- ful to her already. "Since the physicians get way more training and experience than we get as nurse practitioners, I think it's really important for FNPs to maintain that good relationship with physi- cians," she said. The FNP training is similar to a physician's as- sistant. The primary dif- ference is in the type of degree earned prior to be- coming a PA or FNP. A Shelby Frost, MSN FNP specialized training on the job in this area. She said the hands-on training was invaluable and she looks forward to using much of what she learned through the program in Bismarck in her practice at the clinic in Lovell. In addition to women's health, Frost said she is in- terested in pediatrics, well- child services and mental health. Frost is originally from Kemmerer but has lived in Cowley since 2001. She said the support of her husband Stuart and her children al- lowed her to devote the last nurse practitioner becomes a nurse first before receiv- ing the additional train- ing to expand services as a practitioner, whereas a PA may have more of a sci- ence background. The FNP degree includes a master's degree in science of nurs- ing and in the state of Wy- oming is allowed to practice independently. Frost is particularly in- terested in women's health and said she was fortunate to spend a lot of clinic time during her studies at San- ford Women's Clinic in Bis- marck. She said since the clinic provides a wide va- riety of services to women, including surgeries, births and various types of birth control like IUDs and Nor- plants, she was able to learn about all of these ar- eas during the time spent working there. She also trained in an emergency room all last summer and will be receiving even more 2 years to intense study that led to her certification as an FNP and obtaining her master's degree. "My husband was com- pletely 100 percent in sup- port of me during all of this," she said. "My children were just awesome, too." Frost has two grown stepchildren who live away from home and three chil- dren ages 14, 11 and 7 liv- !iiiiiii!ii!ii!!iiiiii!iiiiiii!ili!iiiiii!!iliiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiil;ii ii ll ? !

New mobile medical unit hits the road PATTI CARPENTER A brand new mobile medical unit was purchased with grant funds for use by North Big Horn County Hospital. The unit, which made its debut this week, will offer convenient access to services on location like sports physicals, flu shots and other services. the hospital. It was also showcased in the Byron Days parade. Toner said special an- nouncements will be made in advance prior to the unit visiting a particular community. The first events will take place on July 23 in Denver and Burlington, where sports physicals for high school athletes will be made available in the van. Toner said the idea is to save individuals a trip to BY PATTI CARPENTER A brand new mobile medical unit will soon be visiting communities in Big Horn County, provid- ing convenient services to members of some of the less populated communi- ties in the area. During events that will be sched- uled in advance, sports physicals, flu shots and other services will be made available through the van. Chief of Nursing Tina Toner said the staff is an- ticipating many uses for the unit, which looks like a big white camper but is specially equipped with a special lift for wheelchair bound patients, a waiting room and an exam room. The unit, which cost $168,820, was purchased entirely with grant funds through a Wyoming Prima- ry Care Association grant from the Wyoming Office of Rural Health. Most of the supplies and costs will be paid for during the first three years of use, through the grant. The unit made its de- but this week with a spe- cial showing on Friday at the clinic by bringing these routine services directly to their community. The unit will also be available to plants in the area to provide on- site services like special screenings and physi- cals required for industri- al workers. Depending on the service being offered, the unit will sometimes be manned with a medi- cal provider from the clin- ic; at other times it will be manned by a nurse. ing this important anniver- sary year with a tour of the Caroline Lockhart Ranch on Sunday, July 20.

There is a vol- unteer opportunity at Big- horn Canyon National Recreation Area on Wednes- day, July 23, which will be led by Jennifer Schneider. '%Ve are looking for vol- unteers to help with trail improvements on the Upper Layout Creek Trail, which is located near the historic Ewing-Snell Ranch," Chief of Interpretation Chris- ty Fleming said. "This trail runs along the Layout Creek Canyon past a wa- terfall to the Layout Creek springs. The trail work will consist of two feet of brush removal to widen a 50-foot stretch of path through an overgrown area. There will also be surface grading and the creation of switchbacks on steeper slopes of the trail to help create a safer walk- ing surface for hikers." The project was written to include a Wyoming Con- servation Carp crew that will be staying in the park for a 10-day period working on this and other projects at Bighorn Canyon. The cur- rent local Youth Conserva- tion Carp employees hired on at Bighorn Canyon will get the opportunity to work with this college crew and glean hands-on experience acquiring the skills to create sustainable trails that will cause little to no erosion to the steep mountain slopes. Contact Schneider or Fleming at the Lovell Vis- itor Center at 548-5406 to take advantage of this vol- unteer opportunity. Orga- nizers hope to have a head count by July 21 to help plan for the day. Volunteers should plan to meet at the Visitor Center at 8 a.m. on July 23. They should have good sturdy shoes, work gloves, water, snacks and a lunch.
