Sharma Atkinson-Staten | APRN, FNP-C
Welcome! I am a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner and have been practicing as an NP since 2014. My NP experience includes Interventional Cardiology, Family Practice, and most recently, pain management.
Prior to this, I practiced as an RN for 25 years in Labor and Delivery, outpatient surgery, gynecology, high-risk obstetrics home health, and I was also a certified childbirth educator.
I was born in Kentucky and moved to Lake City when I turned 10. I graduated from CHS in 1987 and completed my Bachelor’s degree graduating Summa Cum Laude at Rush University in Chicago.
Since then, I worked as an RN in the Chicago area, Miami, West Palm Beach, and Jacksonville, FL. My Master’s in Nursing was completed at University of South Alabama.
Back home in Lake City since 2014, I have practiced as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner.
It has been a dream of mine to open my own practice and I look forward to getting to know you and provide you and your family with comprehensive and personalized primary care.
