After losing a previous position as a single parent, Ms. Duncan found herself in need of a career that would embrace her desire to care for people and provide stable income, benefits, and longevity. With great challenges ahead, she forged on and pursued an education at Eastern Illinois University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in political science in 1988. Ms. Duncan went on to complete additional coursework and obtained an Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Lewis and Clark Community College in 2012 and a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2017, where she is currently pursuing a master’s degree. Attributing her success to her tenacity and broad experiences, Ms. Duncan is a licensed registered nurse in the state of Illinois and is ACLS CPR certified, as well as a certified Living Compass wellness advocate.
Ms. Duncan entered the field as a part-time staff nurse at Carlinville Area Hospital in 2012 until 2014, during which time she also worked as a neurological nurse at HSHS St. John’s Hospital from 2013 to 2015. Ms. Duncan spent the following year as a traveling nurse for Maxim Healthcare Services in Columbia, Maryland before taking her current position at Edward-Elmhurst Health Ventures in Naperville, Ilinois, in 2015. In order to remain knowledgeable of changes in the field, she is an active member of the Illinois Society for Advanced Practice Nurses, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, the American Nurses Association, Sigma Theta Tau, and Phi Theta Kappa. Looking toward the future, Ms. Duncan would like to remain an actively working nurse practitioner in the years to come and would like to one day own a wellness center.
