Horizon Health Care is pleased to welcome Morgan Jones, DNP, FNP-C, as a new medical provider at Yankton Community Health Center. Dr. Jones joins provider Amanda Thoms, CNP, to provide primary care medical services to the Yankton community.
Originally from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Dr. Jones received a bachelor’s degree in nursing from University of South Dakota in Vermillion, South Dakota. In 2021, she graduated with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice from Creighton University in Omaha. She was selected from her graduate class to study women’s health in the Dominican Republic for two weeks and to speak both nationally and internationally on her study of healthy habits in school-age children. For the last six years she’s worked as a registered nurse at a hospital, in a school, and for home health.
“I chose to become a family nurse practitioner because I love caring for the entire family,” said Morgan Jones, DNP, FNP-C. “I have a passion for educating my patients and making sure they have the necessary resources and knowledge to navigate through any difficult situation.”
Dr. Jones is living with her significant other, Hank, and her black lab, Remi. She’s excited about living closer to her siblings in Yankton.
