What does Women's History Month mean to you?
Women’s History month is a time to reflect on the many ways women have labored & given birth in today’s world via education, healthcare, and innovative industries.
Rosa Terrance is a native of Baton Rouge, LA and currently resides in Phoenix, AZ. She completed her undergraduate Nursing degree from Prairie View A&M University and with a hunger for leadership, she later obtained a MSN and DNP from Southern University and A&M College. Rosa was the first student to complete Southern University's Gerontological Nurse Practitioner program...a nursing trailblazer and true history maker!
With a Doctorate of Nursing Practice, she works as a board certified Geriatric Nurse Practitioner in the community setting. Additionally, she is an adjunct instructor at a local university, a clinical preceptor, and an entrepreneur as an Independent NP Contractor.
Rosa believes that culturally competent health care produces better patient outcomes and increased moral. In her response to implementing the New ANA Standard 8: Culturally Congruent Practice, Rosa is quoted for saying, "A hallmark of nursing is the provision of competent and compassionate care. This care must be delivered to all; regardless of race, sex, background, or financial status. In a place and time where racial tensions are high and steadily climbing, the efforts of nurses must also climb to promote cultural competence in the healthcare delivery system."
Though she wears many hats and holds many titles, her most prized is being a single-mother of three.
