Nida Klopfenstein, NP-C
Nida works as a Nurse Practitioner with Centerstone Health services. She provides Psychiatric Medication Management for adults with mental illness and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to help adults who have addictions.
No two people are alike. Everyone is unique, with their own set of values and experiences. So, Nida’s approach to care is patient-centered and individual. She strives to treat patients the way that she would want to be treated. In addition to prescribing medications, she also encourages people to take responsibility for their health and well-being by adopting a healthy lifestyle and minimizing tobacco, alcohol, and substance use.
Nida always knew she wanted to work in the medical field. She chose to become a nurse because she liked close patient contact. Nida started her career working in long-term care for nearly ten years as a CNA, RN, and later as an NP.
She had an interest in psychology as well and earned an undergraduate degree in the field. When an opportunity came open to work in mental health as a Nurse Practitioner, she took it. That was nearly 20 years ago, and she still loves her work!
Nida attended Purdue University, earning an Associate in Nursing in 1995, a Bachelor in Psychology in 1996, and a Bachelor in Nursing in 1998. In 2001, Nida graduated from Ball State University with a Master Degree in Nursing. She is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).
In her free time, Nida enjoys spending time with friends and family, cooking and eating, outdoor activities–hiking, kayaking, running 5Ks or trail runs, and traveling.
