Jennifer Robbins DNP, ARNP, has joined Anacortes Family Medicine (AFM) and is currently seeing patients in The Walk-In Clinic at Island Hospital, located in the AFM clinic. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of Redlands, Redlands, CA and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from the University of Washington, Seattle, WA. She also earned Master of Nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice Degrees from the UW Family Nurse Practitioner Program. During her training, Dr. Robbins was awarded membership in Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.
Prior to joining AFM, Dr. Robbins worked as a Registered Nurse in the Medical Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Harborview Medical Center, Seattle, WA, where she was a vital component of a multidisciplinary team caring for critically ill patients. While she enjoyed the challenges of ICU nursing, she felt that many unit admissions could have been prevented and wanted to be part of the solution by becoming a primary-care practitioner.
Dr. Robbins is licensed as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner and as a Registered Nurse by the State of Washington. She is board certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Family Nurse Practitioner. She completed her doctoral capstone project at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island where she helped identify the impact of pregnancy on military readiness.
Dr. Robbins grew up in Tacoma, WA, and has been a resident of Anacortes for several years. Her husband is a jet pilot with the U.S. Navy, and the couple enjoys traveling, wine making, skiing, camping and hiking – including summiting Mt. Rainier.
