Bradley Hagen, FNP-BC, RN, decided to become a nurse practitioner because he has always enjoyed science and grew up in a family of health care professionals. Being a health care provider was a natural choice for him. Over his career as a family practitioner, he’s cared for patients of all ages and a wide variety of conditions. “I’ve enjoyed caring for workers and now focus on that in my work in occupational medicine,” he says, “and helping patients improve their health and functioning to benefit their lives and functioning in their jobs.”
In his practice, Bradley emphasizes collaboration with his patients to try and achieve the best health outcome for them. He considers his most important role as being a good listener, approachable, professional, and providing clinical knowledge and skills to improve his patients’ health and functioning. Bradley believes in active collaboration with his patients to achieve the best outcome for their health needs.
Bradley earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology from St. Olaf College in Minnesota, and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Minnesota State University, Mankato. He completed his Master of Science degree in Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner at the University of Tennessee, College of Nursing, Knoxville.
Bradley grew up in Minnesota and is married. He enjoys family activities, science, current events, the arts, fitness and the outdoors.
