Tess Hanen, FNP-C

Grand Canyon University



From a very young age I knew I wanted to work in healthcare. At 14 years old I knew I wanted to be a nurse. I was the oldest child growing up and I always took it upon myself to take care of the family. It’s just always been my nature. I became a registered nurse at 22 years old. The only job I’ve ever had has been in healthcare.

I came to Mountain Park because I’m originally from Glendale. With the clinic being in my neighborhood I feel like I understand the community and what the patients that visit our Glendale Clinic need the most. I love to learn, and I feel that I can learn the most at Mountain Park clinics and the broad range of patients I see.

When patients come in for a visit, they can expect for me to help them manage their healthcare. I’m a wellness manager, so I help manage what patients need. If patients need to be referred to a specialist, I make sure to explain why and will continue to help them manage the entire process. I just love healthcare. If I wasn’t working in healthcare, I don’t know what I would be doing.
