Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Jul 1, 2020

Now, in addition to our other medical services, we have a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on staff to bring more services to all the clients we serve!

You have medical services? and a psychiatric nurse practitioner…?

We sure do!

We can help provide comprehensive, wrap-around medical support to you and/or your loved ones. We’re not here to take the place of your primary care provider, but sometimes they can be hard to get into. Sometimes you get back from the doctor and may not fully understand what they prescribed to you and why. Sometimes you may just need help coordinating care, or have questions about where to start. We can help!

We provide:

  • Care Coordination
  • Symptom Management
  • Psychiatric Medication Evaluation
  • Dementia Screening and Support
  • Advanced Care Planning

In this post though, we are going to talk about our new Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, who she is, and what she’s here to do.

Hanna Powers, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC.

All those letters after her name are a fancy way of saying 1. she’s pretty smart, driven, and helpful, and 2. that she is here to help assess, diagnose and treat the mental health needs of you, our patients, clients, and friends. PMHNPs can provide therapy and prescribe medications for patients who have mental health disorders or substance use disorders. 

Hanna was born in Powell, Wyoming and raised in Burlington, Wyoming. She graduated from Burlington High School and attended the University of Wyoming. In 2015, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing while concurrently serving in the Air National Guard, 2011 to 2019. Upon graduation, she worked in Wyoming and neighboring states as an RN. She has worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings as a Med/Surg, ER, Mental Health, and Correctional RN.

In 2019, Hanna attended graduate school at the University of Colorado College of Nursing in Denver, Colorado. She graduated with a Master of Science in Nursing with a Psychiatric- Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) specialization. She is ANCC board-certified and works with individuals of all ages.

Meet the rest of our team here.

We are so excited to welcome Hanna to the team and to be able to provide these services to our communities. LIV Health serves Wyoming and Northern Colorado. Albany, Goshen, Laramie and Platte Counties in Wyoming, and Larimer and Weld Counties in Colorado. We are coming to Natrona county soon! So watch out for more info about that, coming your way.
