Yvette has been a registered nurse since 2003 and a certified nurse practitioner since 2013, practicing clinically completing in-home risk assessments. She completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in May, 2018, which was titled, the "The effect of an evidenced based cultural competency educational program on registered nurse's cultural competence." The goal of this work is to ultimately reduce health care disparities and bring both clinical and academic work together utilizing the culturally linguistic and appropriate services (CLAS) approach.
Yvette's interest also include addressing the social determinants of health in the work towards social justice. She is passionate about increasing students from under-represented groups in nursing and, in her role as president of the Rochester Black Nurses Association, Inc., this is one of her goals.
