Good Samaritan Welcomes New Nurse Practitioner

Good Samaritan is excited to announce the arrival of Jamie Frederick as a new Family Practice Nurse Practitioner. Frederick started her career at Good Samaritan as a staff nurse and childbirth educator on the OB Unit. She wanted to continue to grow her career and become a nurse practitioner for many reasons, one of them being that she truly enjoys taking care of people. “Being a nurse is a part of me,” said Frederick. She received her Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Vincennes University and later went on to earn her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Nursing from Indiana Wesleyan University.

She was inspired by many medical professionals in her life that encouraged her to pursue her degree including, Dr. Larry Herron, Nurse Practitioner Andrea Orr-Miller, Dr. Thomas O’Rourke and Dr. Scott Stine. “I loved working as a nurse with Dr. Stine because we were able to take care of families and see them throughout their lifespan,” said Frederick.

Frederick has loved working at Good Samaritan since her first day as a student extern. She immediately knew she wanted to be a part of a place where people pulled together, made sure everyone was taken care of with excellence, and respected each other. When she is not caring for patients or working as the Director of Clinical Services for Good Samaritan Physician Network, Frederick enjoys spending time with her husband, Brian, and their blended family of four children. She also likes to go camping, boating, fishing, spending time outdoors, gardening, canning, riding horses and reading.
