Elizabeth Owusu, MSN

I was born and raised in Ghana, West Africa but I earned my nursing degree in Charlotte, NC. I am currently a dual certified Family Nurse and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in the state of North Carolina. I have over 16+ years of both acute care and public nursing experience. As aforementioned I was raised in Ghana, where many things are reserved for the wealthy, this includes education, mental health, and healthcare. In many cases, a preventable illness becomes an epidemic due to lack of better understanding of one’s medical diagnosis and treatment course. In some cases, poor communication is to be blamed but often the case is the underprivileged are purposefully under treated. This experience fueled my desire for healthcare when I got the opportunity. Today’s healthcare professionals are seeing a growing number of patients with diverse cultural backgrounds, and understanding their particular needs is crucial in reducing disparities which adversely increases patient satisfaction. My long-term goal is to focus on building myself into an effective holistic mental health provider through my experience, in order to treat, educate and manage mental health issues to prevent further ailments and comorbidities. My understanding of the advanced nursing role is to holistically manage, prevent, and therapeutically prescribe treatment including medications and other ancillary in conjunction with therapies for a better outcome. I have one daughter and we both love travelling. I look forward to working together with my team of professionals as well as my clients and families to achieve their psychiatric goals and needs.
