Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created. Esther 4:14


I am Dr. Suzanne Winzenburg. I received a Doctorate of Nursing Science degree from Frontier Nursing University and a Master of Nursing Science- Family Nurse Practitioner degree from the University of Southern Indiana. I have practiced as a nurse for 28 years in various capacities, but for the last 8 years I have been a family nurse practitioner working with rural and under-served populations.

Professionally, I have active Registered Nursing licenses in Tennessee, Louisiana, and Alabama and Family Nurse Practitioner licenses in both Tennessee and Louisiana. I received my national certification as a family nurse practitioner through the American Nurses Credentialing Center. I am a member of several professional organizations including the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, and Doctors of Nursing Practice.

My interests include spending time with my family, being outdoors, using my creative gifts and serving others. I currently volunteer in a free medical clinic and with my church group that supports mothers of unplanned pregnancies. 

I have taught in both graduate and undergraduate programs both online and face to face. What I enjoy most is working closely with students in a clinical mentor capacity. I look forward to being on this learning journey with you!
