Morris Hospital Welcomes Family Nurse Practitioner to Ridge Road Campus
As a family nurse practitioner, Pettry-Soto is qualified to serve as the primary health care provider for patients of all ages. She holds a Family Nurse Practitioner certificate, allowing her to order and interpret diagnostic tests, diagnose disease, provide appropriate treatments and prescribe medications.
“I thoroughly enjoy working with all ages,” says Pettry-Soto. “It is professionally gratifying having the ability to treat the whole patient to ensure they can live their lives to the fullest.”
As a primary care provider, Pettry-Soto says she is committed to listening and building trust with her patients to foster an open, honest relationship.
“I became a primary provider to have a larger influence on patients,” Pettry-Soto says. “Trust, honesty and respect are pillars of mine that are held to the highest degree with each patient encounter.”
A resident of Morris since the age of 4, Pettry-Soto received her master’s degree and bachelor’s degree in nursing from Lewis University in Romeoville and worked as a registered nurse at Morris Hospital from 2016-2021.
