December 11th, 2017

WellOne Primary Medical and Dental Care is pleased to announce the addition of Jennifer A. Ugbanaja, MSN, CPNP, CNS, RN-BC, to its team of Behavioral Health Specialists. WellOne is a Federally-Qualified Community Health Center that provides primary medical, dental and behavioral health services in Pascoag, North Kingstown, Scituate and Foster.

Board certified and a licensed Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Ugbanaja provides comprehensive care for behavioral health patients based on the mental, emotional and physical needs of the patient. Her responsibilities include, but are not limited to, prescribing medications, medication evaluation and management, as well as diagnosing problems and developing treatment plans. Mrs. Ugbanaja is available to see children, adolescents and adults in WellOne’Ss Pascoag, Scituate and North Kingstown facilities.

Prior to joining WellOne, Ugbanaja was employed by two major behavioral health care organizations in Rhode Island.

Ugbanaja holds a Masters of Science in Nursing with a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Specialization from the University of Saint Joseph, Hartford, CT. She also holds a Masters of Science degree with a specialization in Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinical Nursing from the University of Rhode Island where she also earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Nursing.

“The critical shortage of psychiatric prescribers in Rhode Island has evolved into a serious problem for the behavioral health system in Rhode Island,” states Clifford Gordon, Ed.D., Director of Behavioral Health at WellOne. “The addition of Jennifer to WellOne’s behavioral health team will improve access to these services and help fill that gap.”
