Celeste Shumate, FNP

Celeste graduated from Surry Community College in North Carolina with an Associates in Nursing in 1995. In 2003, she received a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Winston-Salem University, also in North Carolina. She graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage with a Masters of Science in Nursing this month.


Celeste has a strong background in geriatrics. When she was in high school, she took a job at a nursing home in North Carolina, where she grew up, and found that she enjoyed working with the elderly. From 2005 to 2008, she was a Public Health Nurse for the Surry County Senior Center. In 2008, Celeste, Chris (her husband of 27 years), and their three children (now grown) moved to Valdez, Alaska. Celeste worked at the Extended Care Unit in Valdez during her time there.


Celeste likes to establish relationships with her patients, getting to know the whole person. She appreciates the holistic care philosophy of Cornerstone Medical Clinic. In addition to geriatrics, Celeste has worked in Medical-Surgical (Med-Surg) nursing and women's health. She looks forward to working with patients of a variety of ages.


Celeste is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She is also a member of the Alaska Nurse Practitioner Association. She has a Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification from the American Heart Association.
