    Hello,

    My name is Dolorita Onguru and I am a nurse practitioner in Chicago and recently  employed at KnowNOW Walk-in-Clinic for HIV, STIs, Hep C, Prep etc.

    I am the newest kid around the block and I am so grateful to be part of this community. I registered as a mentee and found a mentor instantly. This is quite impressive how mentors are  willing to take on mentees and help them grow professionally. I have been  a nurse for more 17 years. I did my undergraduate at University of Wyoming and graduated in 2003, then proceeded to Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland Ohio, where I graduated from the Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner 2015. I have worked as a Nurse Practitioner for 3 years at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center in the department of cardiology, serving the under privileged south side community.  Currently, I am pursuing a post graduate certificate in PMHNP simultaneously with  a doctorate in MHNP. What gravitated my desire towards mental health and HIV was because all the health problems we have in life, affect us mentally and we cannot treat our patients and help our communities with their medical issues without addressing their mental health at the same time. I am so honored to join this community. I moved to Chicago in 2018 from Washington DC. I have 3 children, two boys and a girl.
