Anna Smith, ACNP-G-BC
Anna Smith has been a nurse practitioner since January 2017. She was a registered nurse for 20 years and then transitioned into an acute care nurse practitioner to broaden her profession opportunities and have a greater impact on the patients she treats. Since June 2017, she works for a large in-hospital internal medicine group, specializing in Palliative Care and pain management. Many of her chronic pain patients struggle with dependency and addiction issues. As a by-product of the patient population she sees, she has gained experience in the field of addiction. Anna has an amazing daughter that struggled with addiction. To her, she is a testament to perseverance, and she has enlightened her about the recovery process from a very personal perspective. This intimate awareness has allowed her to see the gravity of addiction today.
