Renee Bowen, MSN, NP-C
Family Nurse Practitioner services at Regional One Health
Renee Bowen, MSN, NP-C, is a family nurse practitioner at Regional One Health’s Primary Care Specialists. Bowen earned her Master of Science in Nursing degree from University of Memphis.
Bowen joined Primary Care Specialists in June 2012, where she provides long-term care to patients in skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities.
“As health care has progressed from the time I got in nursing to becoming a nurse practitioner it seems like the elderly get overlooked,” Bowen said. “They don’t always get the same treatment and are pushed to the side, but
that’s not the way it needs to be. They need an optimal level of health care, too. And working in nursing homes gives me the opportunity to provide the optimal level of care without them having to travel around to get it.”
Bowen said she pursued a health care career because of an interest in biology and how the body works, but a passion for people is at the core of her work.
“I want everybody to do well,” she said. “I just care about people. I’ve never thought about doing anything different. I believe health care should be about optimization in all areas. If you can optimize somebody’s level of health, then you can optimize the rest of their life.”
