“I’m excited to return to Winona Health as a nurse practitioner where I’ll be able to use the full scope of my skills and continue to grow as I care for people in our community,” said Courtney Beyer, CNP, about joining the Winona Health Urgent Care team.
Beyer cared for moms and newborns as a labor and delivery nurse in Winona Health’s Family Birth Center from 2011 to 2015 and as a childbirth educator in the clinic when she decided to pursue her degree to become a family nurse practitioner. Beyer also worked at Mayo Clinic in Rochester in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit), where she cared for their smallest patients. Working with these very small patients and their families reinforced her goal of becoming a family nurse practitioner.
“I’ve always wanted to take care of people,” said Beyer. “As humans, we all go through personal and health issues, and it’s important for people to receive care from someone who is compassionate. My goal is to create a trusting relationship with each person, and I want them to know I will always have their best interest in mind.”
Beyer earned her Doctor of Nursing Practice: Family Nurse Practitioner from Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wis. She is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
“After graduation, I wanted to go somewhere I could use all of my skills and continue to get broader experience,” noted Beyer. “When I started at Winona Health as a nurse in 2011, I found more than that. I built relationships with patients, families and coworkers, and I found a work family. I’m happy to be back.”
