About Anne

Anne Nygaard, MS, FNP-C, assesses and treats all types of oncology and hematology conditions. She also sees patients for genetic risk assessment for cancer-related genetic syndromes at the Sanny Jerry Ryan Center for Genetics and Prevention. Anne is motivated by the patients she sees every day, whether they are curable or not, and believes in helping them through these very difficult times in their lives. She sees patients and families expressing their thanks and gratitude for the care provided to them, no matter the outcome, and this inspires Anne to give her all.

Anne is on the Altru Professional Nurse's Committee. In her free time, she likes to play basketball and be active with her three children, and she also enjoys reading romance novels. During the summer months, Anne appreciates a nice trip to the lake.

Philosophy of Medicine

"Every patient is treated equally. I think that including the patient and their family in their plan of care is very important. Also making sure the patients and their families understand their care and treatment in a language they can understand and receive the education to go along with their care."
