Dr. Zina Byrd, DNP, FNP-BC
I am Dr. Zina Byrd, DNP, FNP-BC. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. I began my service in nursing when I was 8 years old. I accompanied my grand mother on numerous occasions assisting her when she visited and provided care to those who were sick and shut in. Her words of wisdom,
"Empathy before sympathy; when you cannot place yourself in another's shoes when providing care, it is time to quite nursing."
Following her advice, along with my own yearnings, dreams and desires, I began my educational journey.
