Family Nurse Practitioner services at Regional One Health
Wayne Martin, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC is a family nurse practitioner at Regional One Health. Martin received his Master of Science in Nursing degree from Union University in Jackson, Tennessee.
“I have always enjoyed providing care for others and while serving on several mission trips, I became aware of the need for good quality health care,” Martin shared. “I then had to step out of my comfort zone and begin the journey toward my nurse practitioner degree. I hope to be a nurse practitioner that provides compassionate and competent care.”
Before receiving his master’s degree, Martin worked as a registered nurse. “I started out as an RN in the burn unit/trauma then transplant, medical and surgical ICUs and urology,” Martin said. “My favorite patient care ‘philosophy’ comes from one of my instructors in RN diploma school that taught us to care for patients as if they were a valued and loved family member. That basic principle has stuck with me throughout my nursing career.”
Martin is a member of Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nursing and Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society. He was recognized as one of the Top 100 Nurses of Shelby/Fayette County in 2006.
