In the summer of 2021, PCHC lost our leader, friend, and pioneer for our Nurse Practitioner Residency Program. It was Theresa’s vision to build a program to help new nurse practitioners to practice. We continue this program in hopes of achieving that unparalleled vision.
Candace Davis, MSN, FNP-BC, began her career in healthcare as an EMT in Washington State in the early 1990’s. She then moved on to earn both her BSN and MSN in Nursing from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and subsequently obtained a post-master’s certificate as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Graceland University. Ms. Davis has significant experience in critical care medicine, cardiology, and hospital medicine. In 2017 she began teaching nursing at the undergraduate, then graduate level in her home state of New Hampshire. In hopes of combining her loves of teaching, leadership, and patient care, she joined PCHC as the Director of the Nurse Practitioner Residency Program in 2020. She works closely with the Chief Medical Officer and the Residency Coordinator to ensure a valuable experience for both our residents and our patients.
Katie was born and raised in the small rural town of Machias, Maine. Shortly after graduating high school she moved to Bangor to attend Husson University where she received her Master’s in Business Administration with a concentration in Health Care Management. After graduation, Katie’s goal was to find a job where she could help others and make an impact on the community. After several years of working at another health care facility, Katie came to us ready to take on a new and exciting role as the Nurse Practitioner Residency Coordinator here at PCHC. She believes in the importance of this program and is looking forward to providing support for our future residents, for the future of our communities.
