New DNP returns to her rural roots


Since her days at Lake Holcombe High School, Kelsey O’Connor Meyer has known she wanted to become a nurse.

The 2007 Lake Holcombe graduate, who has two aunts who are nurses, first earned an associate degree in nursing from Chippewa Valley Technical College and then a bachelor’s degree in nursing from UW-Eau Claire.

The 28-year-old is one of 1,300 UW-Eau Claire students who will graduate today. Of those, 1,198 are candidates for bachelor’s degrees, and 102, including Meyer, are candidates for graduate degrees. She and 19 others are earning Doctor of Nursing Practice degrees.

“When I decided I wanted to be a nurse, I knew that I wanted to go as far as I could,” Meyer said.

But, when it comes to working, the Cornell resident won’t have far to go. Meyer will begin working as a nurse practitioner at the Prevea Cornell Health Center on July 1.
