Jonathan is a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Jon started his journey in healthcare after graduating with his Bachelor’s in Nursing from Langston University Tulsa. Jon initially worked in medical surgical nursing for two years prior to pursuing his true calling in behavioral health. Jon’s nursing career led him to experience a variety of behavioral health settings where he has provided care to patients of all ages in both inpatient and outpatient environments. After receiving his Master of Science in Nursing from the University of South Alabama, Jon completed the PMHNP Residency Program with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Though Jon’s employment opportunities have taken him to several Oklahoma cities throughout his career, he was excited to be given the chance to provide services in his hometown of Claremore.
