Feature Friday - Dr. Scharmaine L. Baker, NP

Many times nurses come into the healthcare profession and remain in the background of healthcare by coming to work daily, caring for their patients, and then going home.  While they are definitely changing lives and helping to restore those with health challenges back to a good state of health, they often times miss the mark! They may miss truly finding out what their purpose is as a healthcare professional and then walking in their purpose as a healthcare professional. Then on the flip side, there are some nurses who are bold and courageous and are at the forefront of healthcare walking in their purpose as a healthcare professional.
