Advocating for Yourself with FNP Shemeka Davis
This week on The WoMed, Danielle is joined by an old friend and coworker, Shemeka Davis! Shemeka now works as a family nurse practitioner in oncology. She discusses her path to oncology, why she wanted to become an FNP, and how she copes with the mortality rate in her new role. She also shares the versatility and benefits of being an FNP, but also how she misses those hands-on skills she used to practice daily. Shemeka and D reminisce on night shifts, and D opens up about questioning her career path. They talk about the importance of taking care of your mental health as a healthcare worker, and the importance of advocating for yourself and your body as a patient. Shemeka speaks to the nurses out there who may be considering an advanced nursing degree and shares why it has absolutely been the right decision for her.
