PRISCILLA HENRY, FNP-BC Undergraduate: East Tennesse State University Graduate: East Tennesse State University I knew I wanted to be a nurse when I was 17. My father had heart disease and spent a lot of time in the hospital. When I visited, he always said, “You need to be a nurse; you would be good at that.” I agreed and started at Kingsport School of Practical Nursing at 18. The more I learned, the more I wanted to know and do. I believe God always nudges us in the direction we are supposed to go. I loved nursing and felt I had found my purpose in life. I practiced as an LPN at Indian Path Hospital while attending ETSU working on my Associate Degree in Nursing. After graduation, I worked as an RN at Holston Valley in Oncology and ICU. In 1993, I went to work for Quillen VA Medical Center where I worked in ICU for 7 years. During this time I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from ETSU. Following graduation, I went to work for Johnson City Medical Center in critical care and psychiatric nursing. I earned a Master’s Degree in Nursing from ETSU and was certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner. I worked for Woodridge Hospital but had a strong desire to work in family medicine. I began working for State of Franklin Healthcare Walk-In Clinic in January 2010. It continues to be a rewarding and gratifying experience. I pray daily to God, the greatest Healer, that He guide me in providing treatment for my patients. I am married with two grown daughters and four granddaughters. My husband and I love riding our motorcycle on my off time. I also enjoy gardening and scrapbooking. I feel blessed to be a health care provider that accepts God as the greatest Practitioner.
JILL TIPTON, FNP I was born in Chattanooga, but have lived most of my life in East Tennessee. I adore spending time with my beautiful daughter, Emily. I have always been an animal lover, so we truly enjoy our two cats and a boxer. I followed in the footsteps of my mother who was also a nurse. My love of nursing led me to a career as a Family Nurse Practitioner. I appreciate the opportunity to make even a small difference in a patient’s day. I have found that listening is one of the greatest gifts we can give our patients. Since 1991, I have worked as a CNA, LPN, RN and now FNP. My experience includes Home Health, Labor & Delivery, ER and Urgent Care.
PATRICE GIBSON, FNP-C I was born and raised in Kingsport, TN. I completed my BSN from ETSU in 1981. I have been blessed with extensive hospital experience; including, Med-Surg, CCU and ICU/Trauma at Carter County Memorial Hospital, Sycamore Shoals Hospital and Holston Valley Hospital. I completed my MSN from ETSU in 1997 with Board Certification in Family Practice. I have worked with nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home visits and private practice. I feel every step of my career has been guided by my Christian faith and each new experience has been leading me where I need to be. I look to Jeremiah 29:11 as reassurance that I’m in the right place. My off time is spent enjoying my grandchildren, dogs, cats, gardening and hiking.

ALICE ROGERS, FNP-BC Undergraduate: East Tennessee State University Graduate: University of Virginia; East Tennessee State University At a young age, while caring for my Grandfather, I knew I wanted to spend my life working in healthcare helping others. I began my career as a CNA in high school working at a local nursing home. After completing my BSN in 1982, I worked many years in Critical Care providing care for critically ill adults and children. I decided I wanted to be able to do more for patients so I completed my Master’s Degree in Nursing and obtained my Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate at University of Virginia in 1990. After graduation, I taught several years at ETSU in the College of Nursing. In 2000, I found myself missing patient contact, so for the past eleven years I have been working as a Family Nurse Practitioner providing care to area patients of all ages. When I’m not working, I can be found traveling, shopping for antiques, working in my yard and spending time with my family. I strongly believe health is a gift from God and should always be treasured. I encourage all patients to care for their body with a proper diet, adequate exercise, rest, sleep and enjoy blessed spiritual health.
