Name: JoEllen Fielden
Rank:
Major
Branch:
Nurse Corps
Current Duty Station:
Germany
Profile:
Since commissioning, I've been active duty in the Army. I worked as a med/surg/peds nurse for a few years, then went into psychiatric/behavioral health nursing. I did the Army specialty course, got a few years experience doing that, and then went back to the Long Term Health and Education program, where I attended UW-Madison for my nurse practitioner degree. I am a dually certified adult medical nurse practitioner and psychiatric/behavioral health nurse practitioner. I've been deployed twice, once to Iraq, once to Afghanistan. I've been deployed as the provider on a combat stress control team both times and have fantastic experiences. Personally, I got married in 2009 to someone in the Air Force. It has not been easy, but we are stationed somewhat together in Germany now!
