The Housecall Course

watchara

Today was magnificent for so many reasons. First, I had the opportunity to meet two pretty amazing nurse practitioners from Woodlands, Texas. Seree Reynolds (L) and Watchara Silo (R) are both family nurse practitioners who are originally from Bangkok, Thailand. I had the honor of teaching them the nuts and bolts of how to start a Housecall practice in their community. They are now equipped to go out and provide Primary Care to many who would otherwise not receive healthcare.

Second, I thoroughly enjoyed working with them because I got to learn about Thailand and how advanced practice nursing is approached there. We also shared our hopes and dreams regarding family, business building, and cooking habits. Guess what? You think you are different from the next person, but you’re really not. You actually have more in common than you would ever imagine.

New Frontiers

This has been a keynote speaking experience like none other. I never imagined falling madly in love with a community of clinicians, future midwives, and soon to be nurse practitioners.  Frontier Nursing School

It all began when Dr. Julie Marfell, the Dean of Nursing picked me up from Bluegrass Airport. I was still in awe of the endless blades of green grass when I was cordially treated to an incredible organic meal at the local CoOp. Let me just say, ” I was licking my fingers.” I truly believe that I am a total foodie because well, I’m from New Orleans. This makes me a certified foodie. When I lick my fingers after eating, it’s good. Real good.

Anyway, we were then off for a 2.5 hr drive through the most majestic mountain terrain I had ever seen outside of the Great Smokey Mountains and the fabulous snow-topped mountains of AK. I hardly noticed that for about 30 minutes my phone was quietly registering and reporting , “NO SERVICE.” I didn’t notice because of the glorious scenery and the incredible fascinating stories about the founder of the Frontier Nursing School, Ms. Mary Carson Breckinridge . All I can say is, “WOW!” She was an incredible visionary that saw a need and filled it. I am so honored to have been the keynote speaker at the 5th Annual PRIDE Diversity Impact weekend. PRIDE Diversity Impact I’m really kinda glad that I didn’t do a lot of research on Frontier Nursing School before I arrived because that made everything a little more raw for me. More than ever, I have been overwhelmed with the spirit of compassion, community, diversity, and giving since arriving. I feel Ms. Breckinridge’s spirit all around me. I know she’s here. The home she lived in and the trails she took to deliver babies as a midwife for women in her community are still here. There is even a brick from THE Florence Nightingale here!!!!!!!!! It just doesn’t get any better. I rubbed it. I was in the room with it.

As my journey draws to a close, I will relish in the noises from a cricket-filled night and maybe take one more hike through the mountains because I’m always trying to get more steps!

Dr. Baker is now a children’s book author. Read the exciting details below!

Nola wants to be a nurse practitioner just like her mom. She has learned how to care for people of all ages and now visits her friends to heal their sick baby dolls. Along the way, she learns more about her culturally diverse world.
Nola the Nurse was born from the desire of Dr. Scharmaine L. Baker who had been searching for children’s books that were both culturally sensitive and featured African-American nurses. She had found none, so she decided to create her own and Nola the Nurse was born.
