Before becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner, Maureen Russell has been a registered nurse with St. Mary’s Healthcare for 11 years. Along the way Maureen provided comprehensive, safe, and compassionate care to patients from multiple units within St. Mary’s Hospital including the Medical Surgical Unit, Progressive Care Unit, Emergency Department, and Intensive Care Unit.
Maureen graduated with her master’s degree from SUNY Polytechnic Institute in 2021 preceded by her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Suny Delhi in 2015.
“My beliefs about nursing are more than treating an acute or chronic problem but to treat a patient as a whole,” said Russell. “I also have a responsibility to the public and community to provide safe, holistic, patient-centered care. As a nurse, being able to apply my personal experience to contribute to a patient’s wellness and healing gives me a sense of pride.”
