Amanda Vignaroli is a board-certified family nurse practitioner at the NERD Health and Wellness Center. She has more than 10 years of nursing experience in operating rooms, pediatrics, outpatient orthopedics, medical floors and in family medicine.

She was born and raised in Casper, and she made a goal early on to become a nurse practitioner after both of her grandmothers started nursing school but weren’t able to finish their degrees. She earned her Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree at the University of Northern Colorado where she gained clinical experience in urgent care, family medicine, pediatrics and women’s health.

“I feel very honored to be able to give back to the community of Casper as a provider. I enjoy learning, and that is one of the best parts of medicine: There are always new studies coming out to improve our knowledge,” she said.
