Post Rock Welcomes Nikki Cherryholmes!

September 11, 2020 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

My name is Nikki Cherryholmes, I am in the final year of the Family Nurse Practitioner program at Walden University. I am working with Ron Williams, APRN for my family practice rotation; currently focusing on Pediatrics.

Where are you from?
Hays, Kansas.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I have heard nothing but excellent feedback about Ron Williams, especially his bedside manner, and his ability to help educate individuals striving to become mid-levels.

What do you hope to be when you are out of school?
My hope after graduation is to become a Family Nurse Practitioner and to give back to the community and surrounding communities where I was raised.

What do you like about shadowing in Plainville?
I have not had the opportunity to shadow in Plainville yet, but I am looking forward to meeting the staff and patients that make up this community.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
I have two small children (a three year old son, and a one year old daughter) who always manage to keep me busy. I love spending time with my family and soaking up the joys of motherhood. I have been an ICU nurse for the past five years. Recently, I have spent the last few months traveling to New York and Texas on COVID assignments where I had the opportunity to work as an extra set of hands during the pandemic.

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
I find it interesting to watch and learn from different providers. Having the ability to shadow some of the best allows me the opportunity to develop a practice style that is not only up to date but highly sought after.
