Jane Schwarting, PMHNP-BC
Jane Schwarting, PMHNP-BC

Bio:

As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, I do my best to treat the individual as a whole. I prescribe and manage psychiatric medications but also work with individuals who are interested in minimizing medication and offer insights into non-medication interventions. I value time getting to know each patient and understanding what may have contributed to their current state. I encourage patients to participate in individual therapy and 12-step groups. I find patients are more successful when they take an active role in their recovery. I stress to all my patients the importance of daily exercise to alleviate anxiety, improve mood, sleep, and self-esteem.

Education:

I grew up in Florida, where I attended Flagler College in St. Augustine. After graduation, I worked in wilderness programs for dually diagnosed adolescents. After several years, I returned to school to earn a master’s degree in public health from the University of Tennessee, followed by a bachelor of science degree in nursing from East Tennessee State University. After graduation, I went on to work at Duke hospital and later had the opportunity to work as a civilian contractor on Fort Bragg. It was during this time that I completed the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner program (PMHNP) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Experience:

While completing the PMHNP program at UNC, I completed two clinical rotations. One rotation was with Womack Army Medical Center’s sleep clinic, where I was trained in both cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia and motivational interviewing. The second rotation involved providing group therapy at an outpatient addiction treatment program. I later went on to complete specialized training in medication-assisted treatment and obtained a waiver to prescribe in the area of addiction medicine. I spent several years working in outpatient psychiatry and addiction medicine. I have a special interest in assisting underserved populations through volunteer work.

My free time is spent hiking with my dogs, and gardening. I also enjoy trail running, mountain biking, and weight lifting.
