Julie Brooks, APRN, joins Northwest Arkansas Psychiatry as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) in October 2022.
Nurse Practitioner Brooks will work with the psychiatrists to provide continuation of care and medication management to children and adults.
Brooks has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway and a Master of Science in Nursing from Walden University in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Nurse Practitioner Brooks became a registered nurse in 2008, began a travel nursing career in 2015, and served as a frontline COVID crisis travel nurse in Texas. She also worked in private practice in Arkansas. She is ANCC board certified, is a registered nurse in Arkansas, and is also certified in Nonviolent Crisis Prevention.
“I have always held the quote ‘Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle,’ close to my heart. Throughout my career as a nurse and my time spent as a PMHNP, I have felt as though helping others is not only my career choice but also my calling,” says Nurse Practitioner Brooks. “Being an advanced practice nurse is not just about assessing, diagnosing, and treating. Patient-centered care conveys my intentions to help and value a patient as a whole person, no matter their cultural beliefs, past experiences, or current problems.”
Julie and her husband moved from North Little Rock to Northwest Arkansas where they enjoy country living with their two young children. She enjoys spending time outside working in the garden or playing with her children and pets.
MANA and Northwest Arkansas Psychiatry are proud to welcome Nurse Practitioner Julie Brooks!
