Spotlight on Yadira Rohrer

Yadira Rohrer, MSN, FNP-C, is the May NMNPC Region 4 member in the spotlight. Yadira grew up in a small town, Denver City, Texas, working in the fields cutting weeds and saving money in the summers. She says she really hated it and decided she wanted to go to college and get a better job. Her mother became a certified nursing assistant and told Yadira she really admired the nurses she worked with and thought Yadira would make a great nurse. She trusted her mom, went to nursing school and never looked back. Yadira received her ADN from South Plains College, where she learned so much and developed a love for the medical field. From Lubbock, she moved to Canyon to attend West Texas A&M University where she earned her BSN online while working at Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo. She loved her job and wanted to keep learning so continued her education and graduated with an MSN, also from West Texas A&M University. That brought her to Hobbs, NM, very close to her family so she jumped at the great opportunity.

Yadira enjoys being able to educate her community and help them with their health needs. She’s bilingual and finds that has been a big plus. Although Yadira has spoken Spanish all her life, her job has challenged her to learn more medical terminology in Spanish so she can communicate better with her patients She says the main challenge she faces in her community is uninsured patients who can't afford medications and wishes insulin was more affordable, but until then she’ll keep educating her patients on lifestyle modification. Yadira says, “It’s been a blessing to be so close to home but also to do something that I love. I look forward to many more years of helping my community.”
