–Kossuth Regional Health Center has added a new member to their Behavioral Health Team this month. Peter Jorgenson is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and he began providing services to patients at the Algona Clinic earlier this month.
Jorgenson, who is an Algona native, received his bachelor’s degree from Upper Iowa University and a Master of Science degree in Nursing from Maryville University. He has worked in inpatient behavioral health and home care behavioral health settings.
As a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Jorgenson provides assessment and diagnosis of mental health issues, medication management, as well as psychoeducation regarding healthy lifestyles and relapse prevention.
