About:

Shayna Wagler, PMHNP-BC, has joined the Good Samaritan family as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. Shayna resides in Daviess County with her husband and two children. She earned her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Vincennes University and her Master’s from the University of Southern Indiana. “After graduating with my nursing degree, I worked in a couple different areas, but ultimately I really enjoyed working in mental health, where I have been working for the past six years,” said Shayna. “I am from the area and have always heard great things about Good Samaritan. During my master’s program I completed all of my clinical rotations here and knew this would be a great place to work.”

Patients seen by Shayna can expect a provider that is caring and passionate about mental health and will strive to help them with their mental health needs. She also encourages patients to stay active to better their mental health. “Studies have shown that exercise has comparable effects to the use of antidepressant therapy for the treatment of depression,” she said. “Staying active is not only important for your physical health, but also for your mental health.” In her free time, Shayna enjoys spending time with her family and doing home projects.
