Meet The Founder
It started out with advocacy…and turned into a community.
Dr. Patrice Faye Little is a Board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner who identified a gap in NP education while advocating for the modernization of Georgia’s Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) laws.
In 2018, she launched NP Student Magazine to inspire and educate nurse practitioner students. The platform quickly evolved into a community, NP Student University offering support and educational services to RNs transitioning into NPs and high-school students interested in the profession. Today, NP Student® stands as the premier destination providing education, guidance, and community to aspiring nurse practitioners and beyond.
Before becoming a nurse, Dr. Little taught secondary science for three years in South Georgia. She served on various committees, including the Ninth Grade Academy Retention Program, Physical Science Curriculum Committee, and as an Academic Decathlon Coach. Dr. Little leverages this experience to create frameworks to improve NP student retention, standardize preceptorships, promote health equity, and build a supportive community.
She received her Doctor of Nursing Practice from Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University. She also holds an MSN in Family Nurse Practitioner from Brenau University, BS in Biology/Pre-Medicine, and BS in Nursing from Georgia Southwestern State University.
