Betty Elkins, MSN, FNP-C is a family nurse practitioner at Regional One Health. She received her Master of Science in Nursing degree from University of Tennessee Health Science Center.
“Before becoming a nurse practitioner, I was working in research at UTHSC and I came to Regional One Health as an HIV research coordinator,” Betty shared. “It inspired me to go back to school and to continue caring for patients living with HIV.”
Betty works as a family nurse practitioner at Regional One Health’s Adult Special Care Clinic, where she is responsible for assessing and treating her patients with exceptional care. “My favorite saying about healthcare is ‘You have to meet your patients where they are’”, Betty said. “The patients have become my passion and I love what I do every day.”
