Dr. Susan Sanders DNP, FNP-C
My name is Susan Sanders. I am a Board Certified Nurse Practitioner with a Doctorate in Nursing Practice specializing in Family Medicine and Behavioral Health. I also hold a Master’s degree in Nursing Leadership and Education. I have always been interested in psychology which was my minor as an undergraduate nursing student at Anderson University, and Indiana University School of Nursing. Before becoming a Nurse Practitioner, I spent the majority of my career as a staff nurse at Indiana University and Riley Hospitals.
My philosophy of practice is one of servanthood. I also believe in providing holistic care for the mind, body, and spirit that is tailored to each person’s individualized health concerns and needs. I am trained and qualified to diagnose, prescribe medications, order tests, and procedures, educate, and provide care to people of all ages. Currently, I treat patients with depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, cognitive impairment, insomnia, ADHD, and survivors of domestic abuse. My Doctoral work and Master’s thesis focused on the issue of domestic abuse, and I am a Motivational Speaker for survivors. I also provide education on the characteristics of domestic abuse to other providers, organizations, shelters, schools, healthcare entities, and members of the community.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family. We enjoy dining out, attending live music events, and movies. I also enjoy spending time with my three dogs who keep me busy and entertained. I am an avid reader and have a home overflowing with books. My other hobbies include genealogy and scrapbooking.
