Doctor of Nursing Practice student at Fairleigh Dickinson University New Jersey, I have practiced as a staff nurse on a medical-surgical unit for five years and as a nurse leader in an inpatient medical-surgical/oncology and hemodialysis unit for five years. Currently, I function as the Administrative Nurse Manager in an ambulatory care setting comprising of internal medicine and pediatrics. I earned my Master of Science degree in Nursing Administration from New York University (NYU), NY. My research interests for the DNP program are health disparities and population health. While at NYU, I was selected as a research assistant to participate in a study at a leading teaching hospital in Ghana, West Africa. The study focused on staff nurses knowledge about pediatric resuscitation. I was called to join the Golden Key International Honor Society when I was a student at Lehman College. I have served as the church clerk, health and temperance director and as an education director at the North Bronx Ghana Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Bronx NY. I am hoping to complete the DNP program at FDU in Spring of 2018.
