Advancing the Practice of APCs is Velez's Passion

Roseann Velez, FNP-BC, has been a part of the Bayhealth family for a year. She took on a new position as Bayhealth’s first Population Health nurse practitioner coordinator.

Velez ensures patients know how to care for themselves once they’re discharged. And she helps make plans to ensure continued care happens until patients are fully recovered.

She has an exceptional passion for people. Not only does she want to provide the best care, but she seeks to enhance the roles of the advanced practice clinicians (APCs) at Bayhealth.

In August 2021, Delaware became a full practice authority state for APCs. This means APCs can exercise their full capabilities in medical settings.

Velez joined Bayhealth in hopes of bringing to light all the benefits APCs offer to the medical field. Among the best benefits for patients is the time APCs can offer them. “We can spend a bit more time with patients,” said Velez. It allows for bonds to be made and helps the patient have a deeper connection and trusting relationship with the APC.

Before she took on the new role at Bayhealth, Velez worked in urgent care, internal medicine, orthopedic practices, and held the role of professor at two universities.

Her passion for people led her to Bayhealth. And she’s thrilled with the choice she made. She sees the potential for making the role of the APCs even stronger at Bayhealth – all to benefit our patients.
