Solange Dabone, APRN
Solange Dabone originates from West Africa but has been living in the US for 22 years. She earned her LPN from Meridian Technology Center and then her RN from Northern Oklahoma College where she received the faculty award for nursing spirit for 2015. She continued her education at Southern Oklahoma State University where she obtained her BSN and then her MSN in Acute Care Adult/ Gerontology Nurse Practitioner from Maryville University in Missouri.
Before coming to SMPC as a Nurse Practitioner, Solange worked as a med-surg nurse at Stillwater Medical Center for seven years. According to Solange, she was “part of a dynamic team that provided the best care to our patients with a sense of community and cost savings” and looks “forward to continuing this practice in the outpatient setting by focusing on disease prevention, health promotion, and giving back to the community as much as possible.”
Solange has a combined 12 years of experience as a nurse in acute and long-term care of adult and geriatric care. This population usually has multiple comorbidities requiring critical thinking skills to provide them with an effective treatment plan. Solange strives to be approachable and an advocate for her patients; this allows her to work with them and, through shared decision-making, develop care plans that will enable them to reach and maintain the best quality of life they can reach.
Solange has been in Stillwater with her husband and two sons for 14 years. Her husband is affiliated with OSU, their oldest son is in college, and the youngest attends Stillwater high school. The family has a black-furred golden doodle named Max who likes to be the center of attention. In her spare time, Solange loves to read, watch history documentaries, and learn new languages and cuisines. She and her family also love to travel to new places.
