“I always go back to Florence Nightingale’s time, and her goal of nursing: to provide a safe and caring environment that promotes patient health and well-being.”
As a nurse practitioner, Connie enjoys taking care of the adults but most of all the geriatric population. When she is not at work, Connie enjoys taking care of her grandkids, cooking, and spending quiet time reading and praying.
