Sarah Pearce, DNP, NP-C

Sarah completed her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2012.  During her undergraduate study, she had the opportunity to practice as a nurse extern in surgical oncology at Wake Forest Baptist Health.  As a result of this experience, she developed a passion for oncology patients and a desire to pursue a career in the specialty.  She subsequently began her nursing career caring for patients with various types of malignancies, yet focused on hematologic cancers and bone marrow transplant.  While working on the Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, Sarah returned to school to further her nursing career.

In 2015, Sarah graduated with her Masters of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Duke University.  Her training included additional courses as part of the oncology specialty with notable emphasis on breast and gastrointestinal malignancies.  Following graduation, she began her career at an oncology practice in Mooresville, NC.  During that time, she completed her Doctorate of Nursing Practice at Duke in 2016.  Understanding the importance of patient education as a foundation for optimizing oncologic care and promoting patient advocacy, her doctorate capstone centered on educational strategies for patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplant.

In 2017, Sarah moved with her husband to Asheville where she joined Cancer Care of WNC, PA.
