A privilege and a blessing

Mary Sherman

BLUE RIVER: Mary Sherman, well-respected family nurse practitioner at the McKenzie River Clinic, will be retiring at the end of August. Mary has practiced medicine at the Clinic almost since its beginning. The Clinic opened its doors in March, 1977, and Mary came to work three years later, in 1980.
Mary was among the first nurse practitioners licensed in Oregon, after earning her Master’s in Nursing from the University of Washington. At the time, many people didn’t understand the exact role of family nurse practitioners in the medical system. Now, it’s well known that family nurse practitioners provide full primary care and are a valuable asset to the health care system.
