Theodore Hendrickson, BSN, RN, CCRN

Fairfield University
DNP Student

I am a second degree RN, BSN who upon graduation, joined the CT Air National Guard as a 2nd LT. I am one of three RNs at the 103rd MDG. We are tasked with educating and caring for the Airmen that serve at our base. I have spent the majority of my career in Critical Care, starting out in the Medical Intensive Care Unit at Yale New Haven Hospital and now work in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at the VA Medical Center in West Haven, CT. I am currently pursuing an MBA in Health Care Management at the University of Connecticut while concurrently studying for my DNP in Psych/Mental Health. It is my desire to work with and learn more about the diagnosis and treatment of PTSD. I plan on finishing school in May of 2018 and remaining at the VA in West Haven as a DNP prepared APRN serving our veterans.
