Career Highlights

Dr. Heidi Favero has over 20 years of clinical experience working with different patient populations. She started her healthcare journey in a rural hospital where she cared for patients who had just entered this life and those who were near exiting. The majority of her bedside nursing career was spent in critical care. She also enjoyed her experience as a fixed wing transport nurse. Her first couple of years as a nurse practitioner were spent caring for the cardiovascular surgery patient population. She enjoyed getting to know patients throughout their peri-operative experience as well as continuing to follow some throught the years. The last 3 years she has enjoyed her return to critical care. This has also allowed her to become more involved with academics. It is very rewarding for her to see students succeed.
