At the same time with Julie, Francis (one of the other nurses) also started a specialization. Firstly he attended an 1.5 year program to become a physician assistant. A physician assistant is similar to a Dutch ward doctor, so he will also be able to take over a lot of responsibilities and work independently. After graduating from this program, he decided to follow a degree program to gain even more knowledge.
