MetrodermDC is pleased to announce the newest addition to our practice. It is with great pleasure that Shea Fearneyhough, Certified Nurse Practitioner, will be joining the team to help care for you, our patients.
Shea recently graduated with a Masters in Nursing / Nurse Practitioner program from the University of Cincinnati. She received her Bachelors in Science Nursing from the University of Kentucky. Shea has been a Labor and Delivery nurse for 4 years and at Sibley Hospital in Washington DC for the last 2 years.
We met Shea last year when she asked to shadow Drs. Perkins and Stolar as an elective in her NP program. During her time with us, we were very impressed with Shea in many ways, but just a few were how comfortable she made patients feel her zeal to learn Dermatology, and her determination to do whatever it would take to become a Dermatology Nurse Practitioner.
Therefore, for the next 6 months or more, even though Shea is already a certified Nurse Practitioner, she will be training in our practice to become a Dermatology Nurse Practitioner. Shea will likely see many of you before you see Dr. Perkins or Stolar and participate in your care, but rest assured that every patient will be seen, fully examined, and treated by either Dr. Perkins or Stolar. We are excited to begin her training and equally excited for her future with the practice as her training evolves into independent practice.
