Cassie Krause has been a family nurse practitioner for 4 years. Her experience is in primary care managing chronic illness and promoting health for all ages. Prior to finishing her nurse practitioner degree she worked at the Nebraska Medical Center on a cardiac floor and in the recovery room. She loved caring for patients, but missed continuing those relationships once the patient left the hospital. This desire to build a life-long, trusting relationship with her patients is what motivated her to become a family nurse practitioner. Cassie has developed a passion for integrative medicine which focuses on treating the whole person- mind, body, and spirit. She believes we are designed not only to live without disease or have symptoms manageable, but to thrive and live life to the full by pursuing wellness and wholeness.
