Meet the Founder
Hi! I am Dr. Patrice Faye Little but some students call me “Doc P.” I was born in New Haven, CT and my family is from the beautiful island of Jamaica. Being a first-generation American came with the pressure to be a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. I was on track to becoming a physician and then I met a special person at Georgia Southwestern’s Student Health Center who introduced me to the Nurse Practitioner profession. My journey to becoming an NP was non-traditional, and I also had some personal challenges which made it hard for me to focus in school. Fortunately, I had mentors who helped me navigate life so I could complete the program. Today, I have been a nurse for 13 years and spent the last eights years working as Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in Correctional Health and Ophthalmology.
I have always used my gift of communication to inspire. And while completing my scholarly project, I noticed a media opportunity to inspire future NPs in life, career, and business. After all, with all the claims that NPs are the Primary Care Provider of Choice, why wasn’t there a platform solely dedicated to support NP students? With the push for full-practice authority, why wasn’t there a platform solely dedicated to provide mentorship to NP graduates? The future of Primary Care is in the hearts of NP students and NP Student Magazine is the perfect synergy of mentorship, innovation, and media to inspire the next generation of nurse practitioners (NEXGENNPs).
