Meet Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Nicole Schimweg, PMHNP
What can you tell us about your experience prior to joining Equitas Health?
Before joining Equitas Health, I worked for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections for 5 years.
What excites you most about joining Equitas Health?
I am really inspired by our mission to provide “Care for All.” I believe everyone should have access to quality and affirming primary care, mental health care, and pharmacy services. The fact that the Cincinnati Medical Center & Pharmacy offers all of these services under one roof is such a bonus. I am also excited to meet our patients and learn from their life experiences.
What is your vision for the Equitas Health Cincinnati Medical Center & Pharmacy?
I envision the Equitas Health Cincinnati Medical Center & Pharmacy as the “one stop shop” for affordable, affirming and quality primary care, mental health care, lab work, and pharmacy services in the greater Cincinnati area.
What patients do you want to encourage to seek your care?
I love working with patients confronting depression and PTSD. I always encourage people to seek care if their symptoms are affecting their way of life, or they are unsure of their options. People can be anxious or scared about accessing mental health care. I want people to know that we are here for them. We have a wonderful multidisciplinary team ready to address their needs without judgment.
What are three things we might be surprised to learn about you?
- I love hot tea!
- I dislike drinking plain water and absolutely must enhance it with fruit.
- I love riding horses.
What is something you are looking forward to doing once shelter in place/social distancing orders are lifted?
I am looking forward to having more time to ride and go to horse shows!!!
Please join us in welcoming Nicole to the Equitas Health family!
