About Andrea Walsh, NP

Andrea Walsh, DNP, is a board-certified nurse practitioner with doctorate-level training. She wanted to work in the medical field since she was a young girl and is proud to serve the community of Pocatello, Idaho, at West Family Medicine. With nearly two decades of nursing experience, Andrea diagnoses and treats acute and chronic illnesses, provides family planning services, and more.

An Idaho native, Andrea loved roaming the halls of Logan Regional Medical Center with her cousin. Since the pair had so many relatives working at the hospital, Andrea enjoyed peering through the glass of the nursery viewing window. As a teenager, she knew she wanted to be a nurse. It came as no surprise to Andrea’s family when she enrolled in the nursing program at Idaho State University in Pocatello. 

After graduating in 2002, Andrea went on to work for Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello in the OB/GYN and labor and delivery departments for 14 years before she decided to return to school for her nurse practitioner degree. In 2016, Andrea graduated from Idaho State University with her doctorate in nursing practice.

Andrea is thrilled to be an integral part of the West Family Medicine team. As a nurse practitioner, she works with patients of all ages on the entire spectrum of life milestones, from pregnancy and birth to adolescence and geriatrics. In addition to holding certifications as a Nexplanon provider and a medical examiner for DOT physicals, Andrea is passionate about women’s health.

When she is not in the office, Andrea loves spending time with her husband and their three active sons. She also enjoys reading, running, biking, and skiing in her free time.
