- Delta State University, Masters of Science in Nursing
Rachel Rish, board-certified nurse practitioner, earned her master’s degree in nursing from Delta State University in Cleveland, where she was in the Nursing Honor Society.
She says she chose health care because her mother was a nurse, and she loved how she took care of people. She started her career in nursing as an aide at age 17, and worked in that role until she received her associate degree. She says she chose North Mississippi Medical Clinics because of the connection to specialists when needed, as well as the positive team support.
In her spare time, Rish enjoys playing with her three grandchildren.
