A little about Bunmi Akinmowo

Bunmi Akinmowo is a dual certified Family & Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with over 14 years of diverse experience in the healthcare system. She has a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems, and also a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. She graduated with her Master’s as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Rutgers, with a 4.0 GPA, and later completed post graduate Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with a 4.0 GPA. She describes herself as a proficient and experienced nurse practitioner focused on evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of patients experiencing acute/chronic mental distress or other mental health conditions.

As a Nurse Practitioner, on of her primary goals is to care for underrepresented minorities and improve mental health disparities in the African American community. In her Nigerian culture, mental health is a taboo subject that is never spoken of, and is often an avoided topic in the African American community.

As a single mother, she has a passion for treating adolescent mental health disorders and improving health disparities. Trauma is part of life, therefore Bunmi takes into account that promoting mental health education about psychopharmacology and holistic care is better and less costly than acute crisis treatment. She also has a focus on diversity and inclusion, which she believes means accepting all people regardless of their personal gender choice, religious beliefs, sexuality, race or background. Human nature can cause us to judge others, but I believe that until one walks in someone else’s shoes they have no right to judge their world. As a PMHNP, Bunmi is eager to welcome a diverse patient population, respect all of her clients, and show empathy. Upon intake assessment Bunmi takes into consideration each individual client’s background, and makes sure that they are heard and involved as an active participant in their plan of care. Bunmi enjoys spending time with her daughter, reading and cooking for fun.
