Welcome Catherine Nelms

I have never been so sure about joining a wonderful team of providers at Village Health Partners at Independence Medical Village in Plano as a Family Nurse Practitioner. I was born and raised in Tennessee and am a proud Volunteer. Now that I have adopted Texas as my new home, I feel honored to serve my new community. Through my training as a nurse practitioner, I have an even greater appreciation for preventative health. Proactive health care improves outcomes. Together we can optimize your health.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Tennessee Knoxville nearly eight years ago. I have worked as a registered nurse in a variety of settings including dermatology clinics, medical/surgical inpatient units, and surgical/oncology units. As a registered nurse, I have been the charge nurse, precepted new hire nurses, and received the coveted Daisy Award. I recently completed my Master of Science in Nursing at the University of Memphis in Tennessee.

Activities that I enjoy include supporting my Tennessee Volunteer basketball and football teams, eating out, attending concerts, and jogging.
