Spotlight on Jonathon Palmer

Jonathan Palmer received his undergraduate degree in Spanish and biology from the University of New Mexico in 2003. After working for a time in New Mexico, he and his family moved to Arizona to pursue an accelerated BSN from the University of Arizona. He completed that program in 2006 and they moved back to New Mexico in 2007, settling in Farmington. He attended Northern Arizona University for his Masters of Science in Nursing, graduating as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) in 2011.

Jonathan’s board certification is through the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and a member of that organization. He’s also a member of NMNPC and has been involved at a local level in the past. Governor Martinez appointed Jonathan to the New Mexico Board of Nursing in January 2015.

He currently works in the Pediatric Clinic at San Juan Regional Medical Center in Farmington. Jonathan worked in cardiology prior to that for a number of years. He’s fluent in Spanish, having served a 2-year Church mission to Panama as a young adult and uses that fluency in his work daily where he serves a large Spanish-speaking population.
Jonathan and his wife Kami are the proud parents of five children. He resides in Farmington with his wife and children, where they have deep family roots. He enjoys the outdoors, including activities in the mountains, meditation, reading and yard work. He’s busy with sporting events with his children and is active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, working with youth.

His decision to be a nurse followed in the footsteps of his grandmother, mother and sister and he became an NP as his mother and sister did. He loves working with children and the Latino community. He is especially passionate about autonomous primary care in New Mexico and advancing nursing in our state.
