Afua is certified in Med-Surg Nursing and has worked for the past 19 yrs as an RN with focus on the acutely - ill adult.

Afua has had a great deal of experience in different aspects of nursing both here in America and abroad. These include: community, public health, psychiatry, long-term care nursing, education and acute care nursing. Her specialty area is the care of adults in acute care settings including patients with medical and surgical conditions of all kinds: obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedic, vascular, gastrointestinal, breast, bariatric, genito-urinary, pulmonary surgeries, telemetry and ventilated patients. Afua's passion for excellence in what she does led her to pursue board certification in medical - surgical nursing.
