Joanita Wesler

Nurse Practitioner

Union County Medical Center

I was born and raised in Richmond, Indiana. As a young girl, I was naturally intrigued by articles and literature that had to do with medicine or psychology. I lived in Florida and North Carolina before returning to my hometown for family. My undergraduate degrees were obtained at Indiana University East and I was employed as a registered nurse in outpatient and inpatient settings. I returned to school and obtained a Master of Science in Nursing with a specialty in Psychiatry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2009, and I have been employed as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner locally since that time. I have a special interest in the field of addictions and previously held certification as a counselor from ICAADA and NAADAC. I remain committed to the needs of those who suffer because of addiction and hold a waiver for Medication Assisted Treatment in order to serve our patients who have co-occurring opioid use disorder. I live just outside of Richmond where I have three grown children and six grandchildren. I love the arts (virtually all of them) and like to draw myself. I spend a lot of my free time with grandchildren and working outside on my little farm.
