January 2018 CCH Provider of the Month: Tracy Wasserburger, NNP

January 2018 CCH Provider of the Month: Tracy Wasserburger, NNP

Our providers are experts... and great people too! Meet Tracy Wasserburger, NNP, the Campbell County Health January 2018 Provider of the Month.

Tracy joined the medical staff in 2009 and works with pediatricians and nursing staff to care for normal newborns and provide comprehensive critical care to infants in the Level II Nursery in the Campbell County Memorial Hospital Maternal Child unit. She completed her Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (NNP) program at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. The online program enabled her to stay in Wyoming and continue working while completing her clinical practice requirements in Denver, Colorado.

Prior to completing her NNP education, Tracy was the Manager of the Maternal Child Unit for more than 20 years, where she developed her love of learning and passion for newborn care. Tracy is one of only two NNPs in the state of Wyoming, and is active in the National Association of Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NANNP). She is currently serving her last term on the organization’s national council, one of eight NNPs elected from across the United States.

Like many places in the United States today, Tracy has seen the number of newborns born with substance abuse exposures greatly increase since she began practicing. She emphasizes the importance of education without judgment for the parents of these babies, including during prenatal visits and breastfeeding education.

Tracy loves her work and plans to keep working for the foreseeable future, but she also loves being on grandma duty for her sons, Jory and Trey. Jory is in his second year of an orthopedic surgical residency at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, and Trey owns a registered Angus bull ranch in Nebraska. Daughter Hayley is working on her second Bachelor’s degree, this one in nursing. Tracy suspects that Hayley will become an Advanced Practice Provider like her mom someday. Tracy is very proud of her husband Jeff, a state senator representing Campbell County in the Wyoming legislature.

Thank you, Tracy Wasserburger for providing our patients with excellent care.
