Jennifer Smith-SSRH
SILOAM SPRINGS – Jennifer Smith, advanced practice registered nurse (APRN), recently joined Siloam Spring Internal Medicine at 1101-1 N. Progress Ave. in Siloam Springs. Smith has experience in emergency medicine, cardiology and internal medicine, and will work alongside Dr. R.E. “Bud” Meehan. She is now accepting new patients.
As an APRN, Smith’s role is a nurse practitioner and primary care provider. She is able to treat and diagnose health problems, perform procedures, prescribe medication, order and interpret lab tests, refer patients to specialists and physicians and be a patient advocate. Offering high-quality health care services, Smith can manage and diagnose chronic and acute conditions while emphasizing good health and disease prevention.
Smith also is a board-certified adult gerontology acute care nurse practitioner. This certification allows her to provide advanced care to meet the needs of young adults, older adults and the elderly with complex acute or chronic health conditions.
“Over the past seven years of working in a hospital setting, I have learned to appreciate nursing and all it has to offer,” Smith said. “Even though health care providers are on a very demanding time schedule, it is of the utmost importance to give every patient the quality care they deserve and require.” 
Earning the APRN designation, Smith completed her advanced graduate-level education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Ala., in May 2014. She also received her bachelor’s of science degree in nursing at the University of Arkansas in 2008.
Smith is eager to treat patients in Siloam Springs and the surrounding communities.
“As a new graduate in 2008, I started out as a registered nurse in cardiology,” Smith said. “I was able to learn time management skills and patient advocacy that I will value for the rest of my career. Time management is essential in order to ensure all patients receive adequate care.”
