Ingersoll's Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic has a new nurse practitioner lead.
Jennifer Grant, who has been a nurse practitioner at the Ingersoll clinic since it opened in late 2011, was promoted to the lead role Feb. 5, 2014.
She replaces former lead Shelly Redman who accepted a management position at a hospital in Kitchener, Ont.
“Shelly left a big gap (to fill) because she basically developed the (Ingersoll) clinic,” Grant said. “It's such a great clinic and the staff is so good and we're going to continue to work at being excellent primary health care providers.”
Completing her BSCN (Hon) at Ryerson University, Grant worked as an emergency/ ICCU nurse for more than 20 years and has also worked as a nurse educator.
A nurse practitioner since 2006, Grant has worked with the aboriginal population in Brantford and as an outpost nurse in northern Ontario.
“It's great because we worked together already,” said Linda Chudiak, the clinic's business administrator about Grant's promotion. “She's already provided great support to the staff.”
The clinic will be hiring another nurse practitioner to fill Grant's former position.
