Working as an emergency room registered nurse for years, Abosede O. Sobo would see patients for pain management issues but noticed there was a lack of continuity of care. She wanted to work with patients to find ways to lessen or eradicate their pain.
Abosede joined the National Spine and Pain Centers in November 2017 as a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner. In September 2018, she began seeing patients at the National Harbor office.
Her previous work experience includes as a nurse at DaVita Dialysis Center, the Emergency Care Unit at Howard University Hospital and the critical care unit at United Medical Center, all in Washington, D.C. She has also served as a clinical research nurse and interim nurse educator in the blood services section at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda.
Abosede completed her post master’s certificate — family nurse practitioner from Coppin State University in May 2017. She also holds a master’s degree in nursing education from Washington Adventist University and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Johns Hopkins University and science laboratory technology from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria respectively.
Seeing patients at NSPC, Abosede is driven by a desire to help patients both emotionally and physically with their pain management with an individualized care approach. “It is very important for a patient to be informed and involved in their care,” she said. “Caring for the patient involves partnering with the (individual) and the care team. There is better compliance when the patients are involved and informed in developing a unique plan of care that best suits their individual needs.”
Away from the office, Abosede can be found spending time with her husband and three daughters.
