Conemaugh Physician Group – Neurology Welcomes Nurse Practitioner

December 5, 2017

Conemaugh Physician Group – Neurology welcomes Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner Christy James, CRNP, MSN, RN to its practice. James will see outpatients at Conemaugh East Hills, 1450 Scalp Avenue, Johnstown, PA.

“Neurology is very individualized,” said James. “Each patient has a variety of factors impacting their neurological state. I cared for neurology patients while working as an RN on the Trauma / ICU nursing floor and enjoyed helping with their needs throughout the continuum of care. I hope to provide the same quality care in an outpatient setting.”

James earned her bachelors of nursing degree from Mount Aloysius College. She worked at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center as a Registered Nurse in a medical-surgical unit, and then on the Trauma / ICU inpatient unit. James decided to continue her education and completed the Family Nurse Practitioner program at Carlow University, graduating summa cum laude in 2017.

“My entire nursing experience was at Conemaugh Memorial,” said James. “I enjoy working here. I didn’t think about looking anywhere else to continue my career as a CRNP.”

James lives locally with her husband and stepson. She enjoys time with family, cooking, do-it-yourself projects, and exercise.
