Emily Patera, APRN
Meet Ms. Patera,

Emily Patera, APRN, is a kind and passionate family nurse practitioner specializing in anti-aging, hormone health, functional medicine, preventive care, and aesthetics.

Emily provides high quality and individualized care to all patients at Re-new Institute in Omaha, Nebraska.

Originally from Council Bluffs, Iowa, Emily was very active in athletics. Growing up, she knew she would go into the field of medicine. 

Emily started working in the physical therapy department at Jennie Edmundson Memorial Hospital at age 16. She felt nursing would allow her to build relationships with patients and provide medical care.

In 2004, she graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). She worked in the Trauma and Transplant ICU at Nebraska Medicine, where she saw firsthand the complications of chronic diseases and the role preventative medicine could play.

Emily completed her master's Degree in Nursing (MSN) in 2008 at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, specializing in Family Practice. Her career began at Methodist Physicians Clinic, providing chronic and acute care to men, women, and children.

Eventually, Emily moved closer to home and worked at Nebraska Medicine Eagle Run Health Clinic from 2016 through 2022. She built strong relationships with clients, helping them achieve overall health and wellness goals. 

Watching people change their lives through exercise, diet, and lifestyle modifications encourages her to look outside traditional medical practices.

Emily has a broad knowledge of diabetes, hypertension, women’s health, men’s health, sports medicine, and mental health. 

She understands people are individuals and that what works for one may not work for another. She is driven to find the underlying cause of patient’s unique health concerns and illnesses.

Emily takes a team approach to achieving personal health goals. She enjoys building relationships and working together through education and empowerment. She wants patients to feel listened to and treated with compassion and respect.
