Family Nurse Practitioner Rosemary Schairer has joined Samaritan Internal Medicine – Corvallis and Samaritan Pediatrics. Schairer sees adult patients ages 19 and older at Samaritan Internal Medicine, and patients from birth through age 18 at Samaritan Pediatrics.
She earned a bachelor’s degree at Carleton College and a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in nursing at University of Rochester School of Nursing.
Schairer became a nurse practitioner because she wanted to empower people to take care of their health.
“I value the mutual respect between myself and my patients,” she said.
Schairer grew up in northern California and was eager to return to the West Coast after completing nursing school to be near family.
“I chose Samaritan because of the commitment to caring for the entire community,” she said.
In her free time, Schairer enjoys cooking, playing music and spending time outdoors with her family and dog.
