In September of 2021, Sarah Hietbrink started a new chapter in her nursing career as she joined the dedicated team at Promise Community Health Center.
Her decision to become a part of the Promise family was influenced by the wonderful reputation she had heard about the healthcare center. It was not only the positive stories about the staff and the unique atmosphere but also the emphasis on primary care that drew her in.
With a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Iowa and a Master of Science in Nursing/Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN/FNP) from Briar Cliff University, Sarah was well-prepared to contribute to the mission of Promise Community Health Center.
What fuels her passion for nursing is the focus on preventive care and her desire to help patients achieve their health goals. She says there is something incredibly fulfilling about witnessing improvements in the health and well-being of the patients she serves. Equally, she loves the opportunity to build meaningful, lasting relationships with them.
One aspect of her work that Sarah holds dear is collaboration. At Promise Community Health Center, collaboration is not just a buzzword; it’s the way things are done. She collaborates with health coaches and pharmacy teams daily, with a particular focus on our diabetic patients. Frequent collaborations with the social work team enhances her ability to provide high-quality care to patients, as well as work with them on the needs of their families.
I am genuinely thankful for the dedicated staff with whom I have the privilege of collaborating; their expertise and teamwork enrich the care we provide.– Sarah Hietbrink, ARNP, FNP-C
