Jennifer Thompson, APRN, FNP-C, is a family nurse practitioner at UT Health East Texas Physicians in Chandler. After spending more than 25 years as a nurse and seeing patients come to the emergency room with multiple preventive diseases, she decided to become a nurse practitioner.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working as a nurse and helping people during some of their darkest days, but I felt like I could do more. I want to make a difference and help people stay healthy and be able to have the best quality of life they can. Prevention is the key to having good health. I wish to provide compassionate care and education while promoting a respectful and therapeutic environment for each patient.”

Jennifer chose to pursue nursing as a teenager after pairing with the profession on a career aptitude test. “The test told me that I would make a good nurse. I did not know what I wanted to do with my life, and at 18, I thought nursing sounded interesting. Twenty-five years later, I believe the aptitude test was right.”
