MAM, BSN, RN , Doctoral (Current)
Latrice Mallard MAM, BSN, RN, is enrolled in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) program and will continue pursuing her Doctorate in Nursing (DNP) degree at the University of South Alabama. She has previously served as a medical-surgical, utilization management, and clinical education nurse, and has opportunities to provide direct patient care and clinical supervision in the community and inpatient care settings for the adolescent, adult, and geriatric behavioral health populations. She has also served a diverse range of youth and adults in the community and local church congregations by helping young children with coping skill and problem-solving strategies. She helped build emotional support for a community of socially marginalized and disadvantaged children.
She hopes the combination of her passion, education, and experience will help her serve as a quality and effective leader and educator in the psychiatric mental-health community so that she may continue to prepare other health professionals along with serving and advocating for under-represented populations in areas she is called to serve as a psychiatric nurse practitioner.
Ms. Mallard has served as president of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association- Louisiana chapter, and a member of Mayor Broome’s Behavioral Health Task force, and Baton Rouge General’s Frontline Patient Safety Task Force. She is a member of the American Nurses Association and a Mental Health First Aid Instructor. Ms. Mallard graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary with a M.A. in ministry in 2019 and from Southern University and A&M College with a B.S. in nursing in 2006.
