Deena Garner, APRN

Deena Garner graduated from the University of Arkansas for Little Rock (UALR) in 2005 with a Bachelor of Business Administration with emphasis on Human Resource Management. However, the profession of nursing claimed her heart, leading her to graduate from UALR in 2007 as a registered nurse. Deena went on to spend more than six years as a bedside registered nurse in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). During that time, she was accepted into the pediatric nurse practitioner program at UAMS, in which she graduated from with honors in 2013. After obtaining her Masters of Nursing Science degree, Deena completed certification as a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in Primary Care and started working as a nurse practitioner providing care to patients in both the clinical setting and hospital setting in Southwest Arkansas.

Deena spent more than two years in that position before returning to Central Arkansas to pursue nursing education at UAMS as a faculty member in the PNP program. In addition, she works 1-2 days a week caring for variety of sick and well patients at Arkansas Pediatric Clinic. Currently, Deena is finalizing doctoral studies to prepare her to become a Doctorate of Nursing Practice. Deena has always been a resident of Central Arkansas, growing up in the small town of Paron, Arkansas.

She and her husband of more than 15 years, Nathan, live in Benton, Arkansas and have three daughters: Mica, Aslyn, and Stella. In her spare time, Deena enjoys relaxing, reading, and watching Razorback football.
