FAMILY NURSE PRACTITIONER
I am proud to announce that Sherrie Koenigseder, APRN, will be joining our practice at Holley Navarre Medical Clinic. Sherrie has over five years’ experience in family practice right here in Navarre and is an active member of our community. I first met Sherrie when she and her family volunteered to help my family lay wreaths at Wreaths Across America, and I was impressed by her dedication to our military families. She is also a strong advocate for patients’ rights!
Sherrie is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Due to Sherrie's experience and education, the State of Florida has approved her for Autonomous Practice Privileges for Primary Care. Primary care practice includes physical and mental health promotion, assessment, evaluation, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, inclusive of behavioral and mental health conditions. Sherrie is also a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, American Psychiatric Nurses Association, and the Obesity Medicine Association.
Prior to advancing her career to a NP, Sherrie gained years of experience as a Registered Nurse with a BSN. She was a charge nurse for an acute psychiatric unit where she worked with some of our most mentally-ill patients. She has treated patients with suicidal and homicidal thoughts, delusions, psychosis, and addictions. She has a clear understanding of Florida's Baker Act and Marchman Act processes. She has also worked for the University of West Florida as an adjunct instructor, where she educated our Bachelor of Science in Nursing Students in mental health, which included simulation training and taking students to mental health facilities for their clinical training. Sherrie was also a Certified Medical-Surgical Nurse where she cared for hospitalized patients with advanced chronic diseases, infectious diseases, post-surgical complications, cancer, and acute diseases and injuries. In these roles, Sherrie has had the opportunity to learn from some of our area's most respected physicians.
