As a family nurse practitioner, Dr. Stidham has provided primary care mainly in a rural internal medicine practice setting located in southwest Virginia for 15 years. She has also managed patient care in a community hospital emergency department, long-term care setting and an occupational health family practice setting.

While earning her DNP, Dr. Stidham began teaching as an instructor in the East Tennessee State University (ETSU) DNP program. After graduation, she became a full-time assistant professor and has since developed and taught several blended/online courses for the post-BSN to DNP family and adult/gero primary care concentrations and the post-MS to DNP track. She became the DNP program coordinator in 2012 and is currently serving as one of the key faculty for a HRSA ANEP preceptor and student training grant.

Her practice focus has been leading an interprofessional, student-led clinic in two of ETSU’s nurse-managed clinics. The health-care team consists of DNP, BSN, pharmacy, nutrition, social work, clinical psychology and medical students. This clinic has been instrumental in providing primary care to uninsured/underinsured adults with multiple chronic conditions and acute/chronic disease in the rural northeast Tennessee region.
