About the Author

Denise Wilson

Denise has been practicing nursing since 1978 and teaching nursing since 1980. She taught in the Mennonite College of Nursing (MCN) baccalaureate nursing program until 1995, when she began teaching in the Family Nurse Practitioner sequence of the MCN graduate program.

Denise is nationally certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center as both a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and an Adult Nurse Practitioner (ANP). She completed the Post-Graduate Family Nurse Practitioner Program at the University of Missouri-Columbia. She also received her doctorate in Educational Administration and Foundations, Higher Education, from Illinois State University. Denise’s master's degree is in Adult Health Nursing from the University of Illinois-Chicago and her bachelor of science in nursing degree is from Illinois Wesleyan University.

Denise’s primary clinical area as a registered nurse was medical-surgical nursing, with her favorite specialty area being orthopaedics. Since becoming a family nurse practitioner, she has maintained a clinical practice with a ten-physician internal medicine group. Denise sees clients age 13 and above, although most are adult and elderly clients. Denise feels it is very important to maintain her clinical practice in order to provide her students with up-to-date information regarding primary care.
