Our physicians are experts…and great providers, too! Meet
Stacey Hastreiter, Nurse Practitioner, the Campbell County Health September 2017 Provider
of the Month.
Stacey joined the medical staff in 2011 and practices with
Dr. Pauline Lerma at the
Heptner Cancer Center. She received her Master’s degree in Adult Health and Illness at the
University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha and is licensed as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN).
She is also nationally certified in Oncology care.
Stacey began her career in healthcare as a
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), and continued to work in that role while she attended nursing school.
After graduation she worked in a variety of healthcare settings as a nurse,
but her passion is Oncology. Her interest in oncology began back in high
school, when her best friend had a diagnosis of osteosarcoma (bone cancer)
of the knee. There she developed a deep appreciation for the strength
and courage of those facing cancer. She feels fortunate to be able to
help people at some of the worst times of their lives.
Stacey and Dr. Lerma work as a team and are in constant communication about
their patients’ needs. The nursing approach teaches practitioners
to view the needs of the whole person, and Stacey enjoys answering questions
and explaining things in ways her patients can easily understand. Her
goal for all patients is to help them achieve their best quality of life.
Stacey appreciates the opportunity to work with such wonderful patients,
even on days when it is emotionally difficult. That is when she relies
on her husband Will and their two children Ellie, (8) and Evalynn (6)
to remember what life is all about.
In her personal time Stacey is a sports fanatic, enjoying playing volleyball,
basketball and softball. She also spends as much time as she can with
family and friends.
Thank you, Stacey Hastreiter, for providing our patients with excellent care.
