Jennifer Owens is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing in 2012 and then proceeded to obtain her Masters of Science in Nursing at Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. Jennifer’s background is focused in primary care and internal medicine.
After working as a critical care nurse for several years I wanted to advance my education and learn more about the healthcare system as a whole so that I could advocate for patients. Being a staff nurse at the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital established the basis of altruism toward various patient populations. I decided that becoming a nurse practitioner would allow me the opportunity to address the challenges of our complex healthcare system and improve patient health outcomes.
Being a nurse practitioner allows me to provide care for diverse populations, from children to the elderly. I believe the most powerful medicine is education. Providing patients with the appropriate tools to be successful should be a standard of practice and treatment.

it was an overall good experience
I can not say enough AMAZING things about this Dr and her nurse! My daughter is absolutely terrified of the strep throat test. She would rather have 10 shots than take a throats swab. I was ready to hold her down and force her to do it. Instead Dr. Jennifer and her nurse Lashonda (I think that was her name) were amazing! They took the time to analyze the situation talk to my daughter and realize how to make her feel comfortable and empowered and listened to and in control I have never seen anything like it. THANK YOU SO MUCH! It really was such a great experience for a sick girl and tiered mom. They listened and cared and it made all the difference. We were able to get the throat swab with out holding her down and no screaming and no fighting. It was fantastic. Thank you so much!
Needed to establish new patient care and got in the very next day, simply awesome.
one of the best healthcare visits I have had in a long while.
