New Family Nurse Practitioner

December 2019

Jeff Shideman is a new Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) at Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Internal Medicine Practice, but he’s no stranger to Sheridan or Wyoming.

Originally from Minneapolis, Shideman moved out West for a position in Buffalo. Utilizing his first degree in wildlife biology, he took a job doing seasonal field work. While in Buffalo Shideman was introduced to his wife through a mutual friend and has been in Wyoming ever since.

“It’s my 14th year in Wyoming and my family and I have bounced around,” said Shideman, “We’ve lived in Sheridan, Pinedale, and we’ve been in Cody for the past 10 years.”

Healthcare has always been an interest to Shideman. He took first aid classes in high school and college, and had the opportunity to turn it into a career in Wyoming.

“While working in Pinedale I had the opportunity to volunteer with an ambulance service and fell in love with healthcare at that point,” Said Shideman. “I turned it into a fulltime job and went back to school to be a paramedic, then to nursing school, and it worked out to me being a nurse practitioner.”

Shideman recently graduated from the University of Wyoming with his Nurse Practitioner degree and before that he graduated with his second Bachelors degree in nursing. Before going back to school for nursing, he was a paramedic for 10 years in Cody. He then did primary care nursing at a clinic for 3 years in Cody. Shideman did his Nurse Practitioner internship at Sheridan Memorial Hospital this past Summer and was immediately drawn to the culture.

“I really liked everyone I worked with and the culture here. Everyone was very friendly and supportive of me when I was here as a student. The way the staff worked really well together isn’t something you see everywhere,” Said Shideman. “That was one of the big draws for me.”

A father to two boys, he loves spending time with them in the outdoors. Whether it’s hunting, fishing, or camping. As both a family man and an outdoor lover, Shideman is excited to be in Sheridan.

“I’m excited to able to spend time with my family, and to live in an area where we can do everything we enjoy as a family,” Shideman said. “Sheridan offers a lot of what we like to do and it’s a good place for my boys to grow up and go to school.”
