Zondrian Kelly-Mack

Hello, my name is Zondrian Kelly-Mack, for the past 16 years, I have diligently immersed myself in nursing as a LPN, ASN, and later BSN-prepared nurse. I currently hold my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Northwestern State University. I am currently a first-year graduate student at Loyola University New Orleans School of Nursing in the BSN-DNP Family Nurse Practitioner Program. My experience in nursing has been immeasurable, rewarding, and inspiring for me in providing holistic, compassionate nursing care on a continuum. I have had the opportunity to care for patients with various backgrounds, and as such this experience has instilled in me professional qualities such as perseverance, dedication, hard work, and determination to excel in my educational goals. As a first-year student at Loyola University, I am aspiring to obtain new knowledge, advance practice skills, and leadership to transition from a BSN prepared nurse to a novice DNP-Family Nurse Practitioner, while affording me the opportunity and mobility to maintain my practice in the Shreveport-Bossier area where I currently reside.
