Welcome, Marie Hendershot!

Marie Hendershot, APRN, MSN is joining FirstCare Family Doctors in Prairie Grove!

MANA patients may already know Marie, as she’s been working with the Fayetteville Diagnostic Clinic. Before her time at Fayetteville Diagnostic Clinic, she was a nurse with the Ozark Senior Center.

Marie completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith, and went on to earn her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Central Arkansas.

She’s a certified nurse practitioner (CNP) and an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) with a specialization in gerontology.

Gerontology is the study of the psychological, social, and biological effects of aging. Unlike geriatrics, which focuses on the diagnoses, care, and treatment for diseases and conditions associated with old age, gerontology examines all aspects of aging. Marie is board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners as an adult-gerontology nurse practitioner (AGNP).

Marie grew up in Van Buren, Arkansas and moved to Fayetteville in 2009. Her hobbies include hiking, backpacking, biking, gardening, watching the Razorbacks, and spending time with her husband, Mike, and dog, Winston.
