Vice President of Nursing and AFC Services, Sindelle Robles, recently added a long-awaited title to her repertoire: Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). Sindelle, who works out of our Lowell office, endured various setbacks—including the Covid-19 pandemic—that delayed the process until now.
At Nonotuck, Sindelle states that the Nurse Practitioner designation will enable her to apply a broader knowledge base to her job, including a more extensive understanding of diagnoses, medications, precautions, and the prevention of other health issues. Furthermore, she emphasizes the value of having advanced degrees within the organization.
The inspiration to become an FNP comes from Sindelle's family. "My mom's primary doctor doesn't speak Spanish. There's a lack of communication when you try to explain something to someone,,” Sindelle says. "It's different when you just go from one person to the other to tell them.”
Sindelle resides in Nashua, New Hampshire, with her husband and one-year-old daughter. In fact, her daughter served as inspiration to cross the finish line and become an FNP. Sindelle envisions a future where her daughter surpasses the FNP title and proceeds straight to a Ph.D. "I want her to do better," she says.
