Lisa Jeffers published on STD's in patients over 50

Lisa A. Jeffers, MSN, CRNP, FNP-BC, NP-C, CWS, a nurse practitioner at Atlantic General Hospital’s Wound Care Center, was recently published in the MEDSURG Nursing Journal; the article is titled “Raising Health Care Provider Awareness of Sexually Transmitted Disease in Patients Over Age 50.”

The article, co-authored by Mary C. DiBartolo, PhD, RN-BC, an associate professor of nursing at Salisbury University, sheds light on a growing misconception: not only are more people over 50 having sex, but more of these individuals are getting the sexually transmitted diseases to prove it.

Jeffers started her career at Atlantic General Hospital in September 2002 as a nursing scholarship student. She has also held positions since including nursing tech and registered nurse in the Medical/Surgical Department. She received a Masters degree in nursing and was then offered the Outreach Wound Care position, where she currently is working as a certified registered nurse practitioner.
Jeffers was honored in 2011 as Nurse of the Year for living and working the mission and vision of Atlantic General Hospital.
