Riverside Cardiology Specialists in Gloucester recently welcomed Jennifer L. Retikis, board-certified as a family nurse practitioner by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, to their team. After receiving a practical nursing certificate from the Saint Vincent School of Practical Nursing in 2003, Retikis earned an associate degree in registered nursing from the Medical Careers Institute in 2010. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Science in Nursing, both from the Chamberlain College of Nursing. Retikis spent the early part of her nursing career at Langley Air Force Base Hospital, becoming the facility’s first registered nurse to perform stress testing independently. She fell in love with caring for cardiology patients and pursued the specialty as a nurse practitioner. Retikis lives in Gloucester with her husband, John, now retired from the U.S. Air Force. They have four grown children and four Miniature Schnauzers. Riverside Cardiology Specialists – Gloucester is located on the campus of Riverside Walter Reed Hospital.
