Mackenzie Simmons, FNP-BC

Our Team at Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics Clinic

Mackenzie grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee, but has called Nashville home for over 10 years. She graduated with cum laude honors from Belmont University and her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. After this, but before becoming a nurse practitioner, she worked as a registered nurse in Centennial Medical Center’s Coronary Care Intensive Care Unit for 5 years. Then, she returned to Belmont University, where she was awarded her Doctor of Nursing Practice after completing her graduate research in opioid overdose prevention education and naloxone (Narcan) training for undergraduate students. Mackenzie is an ANCC Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner as well as a member of Sigma Theta Tau. She is passionate about delivering compassionate patient care and is thrilled to be part of the Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics team. In her free time, Mackenzie enjoys going to concerts, attending Nashville Sounds and Predators games, trying out new restaurants, and traveling whenever possible. She also enjoys movie nights with her husband, game nights with friends and family, and snuggles with her corgi Murphy and her cat Snickers.
