Duck, Duck, Goose!

The annual medical staff election is approaching.  The current President agreed to extend his term twice, when no other candidates stepped up. He won’t do it this year.  APNs, who have always been respected for their care of patients, but only became members of the medical staff a couple years ago when the rules changed, nominated one of their own.  Now what?
