Spotlight on Suzanne Dennehy

Suzanne Dennehy, FNP-BC, is a member of NMNPC because she believes it’s important for nurse practitioners (NPs) to be involved with their state NP organization. She says NMNPC keeps NPs informed about what’s going on politically, both in New Mexico and nationally. She believes that one of the most important aspects of NMNPC is that our organization gives NPs a network of colleagues throughout the state with whom we can communicate and collaborate.

Suzanne practices in a rural health clinic in Capitan, New Mexico. She enjoys working with an amazing team and being part of a community where she can provide care to entire families. She notes that, for her, nursing is much more than her career; it’s her passion. She’s been a registered nurse since 1987 and a nurse practitioner (NP) since 2007. Her ICU experience is what inspired her to expand her education and become an NP. The road to becoming an NP was “a process.” Suzanne had started the program at the University of St. Francis when life became complicated and she made the decision to stop. She then had a visit from Kathy Lopez Bushnell, and Suzanne credits Kathy for convincing her to get back into the program. While attending the University of St. Francis, Suzanne was fortunate to make a forever friend, Amanda (Sam) Conley.

Suzanne was honored to have recently received the PRIDE 2020 Award for Advanced Practice from Presbyterian Medical Services.
