A passion for patients

By Jenny Mitchell, RN,

Dear Editor:

My practice, Needlerock Family Health Care Clinic in Crawford, is open. My passion has been nursing and my dream for many years has been to serve as a practitioner in the North Fork Valley. Thanks to Colorado law and hard work, my dream has been realized. I began nursing in 1977 and with continued education I began as a family nurse practitioner in 2004.

I do not want politics to interfere with my profession or my practice. I've always been inspired by Florence Nightingale, who would treat the enemy as kindly as anyone else. This code is what I strive for. I love working for Needlerock, a non-profit, which now has close to 1,100 patients on the books.
