Interview with Jerry Weston, April 23, 1980

Project: Frontier Nursing Service Oral History Project

Interview Summary

Jerry Weston has a nursing degree, a master's degree in public health, and a doctorate in health services research. Her first connection with the FNS was as a project officer in the Family Nurse Practitioner Program under the Primex grant. Funds were made available from HEW through the National Center for Health Services Research. She worked mainly with Trudy Isaacs, who was principal investigator for the project. Her visit to Wendover in 1975 was made to examine the records and the database with an eye to developing a relationship between the FNS and the University of Kentucky or Yale University. Weston sees the future role of nurse practitioners as being directed away from primary care and toward more specialized capacities.
