Nurse Practitioner

Nikki Pickenpack-Cousar

I have a passion for oncology and caring for oncology patients. I knew it when I began my career as a CNA with Cone Health, and I’m just as moved and motivated today as a Primary Care Nurse Practitioner with a post-masters certificate in Adult Gerontology. My nursing career and continuing education go hand-in-hand and Cone Health has been right there with me from the beginning. Making the most of tuition reimbursement and scholarship programs, I earned my BSN and then my MSN with a concentration in Nursing Education. All the while, I was given leadership and training opportunities in several different areas at work. It might be an overused word, but “awesome” best describes the support, encouragement and mentorship I’ve received to help advance my career. I feel blessed and humbled to have achieved my life’s dream. What’s really striking is that Cone Health wanted this for me as much as I did. And that’s saying something.
