Brook Mickelson, FNP-BC, is an experienced family nurse practitioner and addiction medicine specialist at Axxis Med Management and Primary Care in St. George, Utah.
Prior to obtaining a degree as a family nurse practitioner, Brook provided patient care to post-surgical patients in a hospital setting. After graduating with her master’s degree as a family nurse practitioner, she worked in an autonomous clinic setting offering care to the low-income and underserved population with multiple chronic health problems.

Brook worked on the Corporate Pain Team to write policies for IHC and Continuous Quality Improvement for pain management, preparing the hospital for JCAHO accreditation review on pain.
