Nichole Jakupovic’s passion in life has always been to inspire and empower others to be the best version of themselves. She found that the most effective way to influence the greatest number of people was through medicine. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in the science of nursing from Chamberlain College of Nursing and after practicing as a registered nurse for 5 years she completed her master’s degree as a family nurse practitioner.
During both her undergraduate and graduate years at Chamberlain College of Nursing, Nichole was a member of the National Honors Society and graduated with distinction and Cum Laude Honors.
In the time of her professional career as a registered nurse she acquired experience in the surgical telemetry and surgical intensive care setting at a Level 1 Trauma Hospital. Following her work as a registered nurse, Nichole worked as a nurse practitioner in the pre-operative services department where she was partnered with the anesthesia team to optimize and clear patients before major surgery. She also served to collaborate with the anesthesia and surgical team to roll out the enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) guidelines in the hospital.
In an effort to offer both holistic and medical treatment options to her patients she is currently enrolled in a functional medicine program.
Her years of service in the urgent care setting coupled with her previous work experience as an RN and nurse practitioner have allowed her to offer an extensive array of services with Midwest Express Clinic from urgent care needs and procedures to primary care.
She lives with her husband and two children and enjoys being in nature, fishing, traveling, reading, learning, gardening, functional medicine, and spending time with her close family and friends.
