Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Nicole Rogers has joined the staff of Oswego Health’s PrimeCare office in Fulton.
Rogers, of Hastings, recently completed the family nurse practitioner program at Upstate Medical University and earned her FNP certification from the American Association of Nurse Practitioner.
After earning her FNP certification, Rogers delivered primary care services at the Oswego office of Renato Mandanas, MD. She previously worked at Upstate University Hospital as registered nurse while pursuing her master’s degree. At Upstate, her care experiences included working in various departments such as surgical/trauma/ENT, general surgery, bariatric surgery, and clinical documentation improvement.
At PrimeCare in Fulton, Rogers is working alongside Joselito Ouano, MD, providing a full range of primary care services to community members, aged 13 and older.
Sparking her interest to become a nurse were her two grandmothers. As a young child Rogers cared for her paternal grandmother, who often affectionately called her granddaughter, ‘her little nurse.’ Additional inspiration came from her maternal grandmother, who was a charge nurse at a Syracuse hospital. “This too piqued my interest as I enjoyed hearing her stories,” Rogers said.
She added that she recognized the need for primary care providers locally and wanted to help fill the need, delivering exceptional care to area residents.
