- “Dr. Fuller was an asset to my successful completion PBA’s FNP program. Dr. Fuller helped me effectively integrate knowledge into practice by providing constructive feedback in a supportive, non-judgmental manor; she created a space for open communication to share ideas and freely ask questions. Most importantly, Dr. Fuller instilled confidence through trusting me to assess, evaluate, and treat her patients through collaboration. We collaborated and talked through the best path for treatment based on current evidence based practices. Initially, Dr. Fuller was my preceptor and quickly became a mentor and friend.”

- “I highly recommend Joy as an NP preceptor. Not only does she have many years of experience under her belt, but she also has a passion to educate. Her openness allowed me to ask questions without hesitation. I went into clinicals not sure what to expect but that was my first NP rotation. Joy has really given me the foundation and confidence I needed, which has given me a great advantage in my other NP rotations. Thank you, Ms. Fuller!"
