Sara Dorris, DNP, MSN, CMSRN, APRN, FNP-C is a board certified Nurse Practitioner who joined OMNI Orthopaedics in May 2020. Sara joins the OMNI team with an advanced nursing background since 2014. Prior to becoming a certified nurse practitioner, she worked as a registered nurse for 8 years. While she was a practicing RN, Sara specialized in many areas of nursing. Some of her favorite areas of practice over the years have been working in critical care, emergency medicine both in adults and pediatrics, perioperative and family practice.
