Jessica Nelson, CNP (certified nurse practitioner), has joined the Winona Health Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine team.
Nelson, a Rollingstone native, has been a registered nurse at Winona Health since 2006. “I decided to take the next step and go back to school so I’d be able to care for people in my community on a different level,” she said. “Becoming a nurse practitioner has been a long-term goal.”
Nelson earned her Master of Science – Family Nurse Practitioner degree from Walden University, Baltimore, Maryland, and is certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Prior to becoming certificated as a Family Nurse Practitioner, she cared for patients as a registered nurse in the Family Birth Center for nearly 10 years and then for patients in the Dialysis department.
“After earning my certification, I chose to stay with Winona Health because I like being a part of this community and having the chance to develop relationships with people I’m caring for. We have a wonderful team of healthcare providers and a broad range of services for our patients.”
Nelson and her husband have four children and live in Rollingstone. In her free time, she enjoys spending family time on the river or just being outdoors fishing, hunting or hiking. In addition, Nelson volunteers as the director of the Rollingstone First Responders and president of the Rollingstone chapter of the Jaycees.
