Featured NP: Damarcus Nelson
Damarcus Nelson has been selected to receive the AANP Advocate State Award for Excellence. This prestigious award is given annually to a dedicated NP advocate in each state who has promoted the NP role and patient access to care.
“This recognition from American Association of Nurse Practitioners is not only an honor but, a privilege to be mentioned in the same breath with providers that have pushed our profession forward. The award will be given at the upcoming AANP national conference in San Antonio, TX June 24, 2015. I’m very excited to represent Oklahoma health care and my fellow NPs in our fight for full practice authority in the state. This award has made my fire for pushing our profession even stronger and will continue to make me a better provider in years to come. Thank you to those who have supported me along the way and continue to help Oklahoma NPs be elite healthcare providers.” – Damarcus Nelson
Damarcus Nelson has been practicing in Oklahoma since 2012 with Family Healthcare and Minor Emergency. “We service a large area of patients from Piedmont to Oklahoma City. Currently we have three clinics to service the surrounding patient population. Our practice is NP owned and operated. We see a large amount of Soonercare, commercial, and DDSD patients. Currently I act as a lead provider and many patients call me their PCP (primary care provider). I wake up everyday loving what I do and treating every patient like they are family. I welcome what the future has in store for NPs throughout the state of Oklahoma.”
We congratulate Damarcus Nelson and share in the excitement for what the future has in store for NPs throughout the state of Oklahoma!
