Mary Jo Burkhardt, RN, BSN, CDE Diabetes Educator
I have been an RN for 35 years and also a Certified Diabetes Educator. I’ve spent the last 15 years working with patients providing Diabetes Education. I graduated from UNMC and have worked in many medical facilities since graduating, including: ICU, Step Down ICU and Medical Surgical units. I’ve also worked in Nursing Management, Surgery, Recovery Room and Diabetes Case Management.
I’m not originally from Omaha, I just moved here 3 years ago. I am married and have 2 children, ages 23 and 19. I enjoy working in my yard-especially with flowers, and on home improvement projects.
I love being a nurse and can’t imagine doing anything else. I enjoy the relationships I make with patients and feel my best when I am helping others.
