Madison Bakken, DNP, FNP-C grew up in Boone, attending Valle Crucis Middle School and Watauga High School. She went on to play volleyball at Mars Hill University, but due to a shoulder injury, changed course and graduated from Appalachian State University in Nursing. Madison did her nursing residency at Vanderbilt University where she worked with organ transplant patients.

Madison moved back to Boone in 2016 to join the Emergency Department nursing staff at Watauga Medical Center, and earned her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from Lenoir Rhyne University. She is thrilled to join the Heart & Vascular Center to care for cardiac patients in the place she has called home for most of her life.

Outside of work, Madison likes to spend time with family and enjoy all the wonderful restaurants and activities in the High Country.
