A Brief Interview with Bobbie

I was born in Minnesota, then moved to Long Pine, Nebraska when I was about 3 years old and then moved again after Kindergarten to Chambers, Nebraska, where I graduated high school.

Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a nurse.  My mom and grandma were aids in nursing homes, so perhaps that is where it all started.  When I was in 4th grade, I had a very bad experience with a nurse.  At that time, I remember telling my mom that when I am a nurse, I am never going to be like her because I thought she was so mean.

I am a farmer’s daughter, so I started out doing the farm work.  When I was in junior high and high school, I worked at our local café starting out washing dishes, taking out trash, little odd jobs, and worked up to be a waitress and cook.  After high school, I became a CNA working at the local nursing home for the summer.  Once I moved to Omaha, I became a nanny caring for three young boys while going to nursing school.  After nursing school, I have worked several areas as a registered nurse: critical access hospital, long term acute care, ICU, ED, education department and with the medical staff doing quality, peer review and credentialing.  I was an adjunct clinical nursing instructor for NECC.  I was the clinical nurse expert for Methodist ED in Omaha.

Helping people.  When people are ill or injured, they put so much trust into the people caring for them.  I really want to focus on preventative medicine as I continue my APRN career with OGH and the Wausa Medical Clinic.  I think rural healthcare may be lacking a little in the area of preventative medicine and discovering an illness in the early stages is so imperative.

Spending time with my family.  I have twins that have recently started college.  They have always been very busy in several different activities, it has been amazing to witness them grow into fine young adults.  I am a volunteer for a few different organizations-so that takes up some of my free time.  I love gardening, fishing, scrapbooking, and we raise puppies as a hobby.

Definitely it would be the insurance companies directing our healthcare decisions.

Go see your primary care provider even when you are not ill for your annual wellness visits.  This should be done for both men and women of all ages, including babies through the teenage years.  We care for patients of all ages (newborn through the entire lifespan) and like to see the patients in their healthy state.  With the preventative health visits, we do screenings and monitor your health, any wellness labs, etc. over time to see if patients’ health statuses are changing.  By doing wellness visits, we can often detect a health issue early in the disease process and start treating immediately for the best outcomes.
