Staci Little, ARNP
Nurse Practitioner: Spine Center
Staci delivers evidence-based patient solutions in the DMOS Spine Center. She aspired to work in healthcare nearly her whole life. Staci has spent more than 2 decades in the Chronic Pain Management field, with the last few years as an ARNP. She evaluates, diagnoses, and treat patients whose life or ability to function is limited by painful conditions. Her customized treatment programs include modalities to reduce pain and improve function such as Physical Therapy, aqua therapy, weight loss programs, psychotherapy, acupuncture, interventional procedures, surgery, and limited medication management.
Working as a Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) has given her an opportunity to face different challenges in healthcare that she was not able to face as a Registered Nurse. This career move has given Staci more autonomy and responsibility for the patients she serves. She believes this experience positions her to guide patients to improved functional outcomes and overall enhance their quality of life.
Staci earned a Registered Nurse diploma in 1987 from Allen School of Nursing in Waterloo, Iowa, a BSN in 2011 from the South University in Savannah, Georgia, and a MSN and FNP at St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri in 2015.
Other work experience includes Office Administrator for a Pain Management Clinic, working in the Operating Room as a team lead in Orthopaedics and Podiatry, working on the Open Heart Team, and working in Obstetrics, Labor and Delivery.
When Staci is not working at DMOS, you can find her spending time in Ankeny’s Prairie Trail area. She loves that there are so many tasty places to eat and nice places to meet up with friends for a drink or shopping.
