Should you consider a career in advanced practice nursing?

Our guest for this episode is Dr. Scharmaine Lawson, a nationally recognized and award-winning nurse practitioner. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, and a winner of New Orleans magazine’s Healthcare Hero award. 

Dr. Lawson has a thriving housecall practice in New Orleans, which she started in 2004. She takes a non-traditional, holistic approach to care, seeking to gain a deeper understanding of her patients’ lifestyles through the unique insights that in-home care provides. She is also passionate about exposing young children to advanced practice nursing and is the author of a book series entitled Nola The Nurse. 

She and Dan talk about everything from how her housecall practice has evolved in the time of COVID, what inspired her to write a children’s book, and her advice for nurses trying to decide whether advanced practice is right for them.
