Sue Bhati, PhD, NP, is a clinical assistant professor of nursing teaching in the bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program. Dr. Bhati’s research interests stem from her belief that educating young underserved women in preventive health care, and providing free primary health services to them and their children, is empowering and improves outcomes for both women and children. 

She has worked extensively with low income and diverse populations in various roles including primary nurse, nurse manager, case manager, clinical nurse specialist, nurse practitioner and nurse educator. Dr. Bhati is a FNP with an active practice at the Alexandria Health Department providing sexual health services to the LGBTQ community.
