Dr. Brianna Wilson, DNP, ARNP, FNP-BC
Brianna Wilson was born and raised in the State of Washington and wouldn't dream of living any where else. She and her family moved to La Conner in 2015 to be apart of a community and not just in a community. She is married to Kevin Wilson and has two incredible young daughters who call her "Dr. Mom" whenever they get ill or injured.
She initially was an ICU nurse right out of nursing school at a large hospital in Seattle, WA. It was here that she realized the need and access for quality primary care for the prevention of disease through health promotion and she pursued becoming a nurse practitioner. She completed a generic Masters in Nursing at UW Bothell with emphasis in infectious disease and rural health and then immediately entered the Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree in the Family Nurse Practitioner track at the University of Washington School of Nursing/Seattle with an emphasis on rural health and pain management. Prior to graduating, she was hired at the University of Washington Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine and was a nocturnist and teaching associate for the Acute and Chronic Pain Services managing chronic and acute post-operative pain. She held this position for 5 years.
Brianna has always wanted to have her own rural practice and be an active member of a rural community. She also knew she never wanted to be stuck in the 10-15 minute rushed appointment slots that the current system provides. With her additional and extensive training in pain management she hopes to assist her patients with safe and effective pain strategies in an ever growing population of need. She is also certified to prescribe buprenorphine (Suboxone) for opioid use disorder.
Thrive Direct Health Care is an innovative and affordable way of providing heath care to her community and provide quality services when and where it is needed. She hopes to complete additional training in functional medicine to be able to have the clinic provide the most integrative services possible. She will be partnering with other local integrative practices to allow affordable access to these services.
She can't wait to meet you and help you achieve your health goals. If she can get you off of medications and scratch off chronic diseases in the process she will.
