Transplant Nephrology Welcomes Nurse Practitioner Kelsie Mooney

The Division of Nephrology welcomes Kelsie Mooney to the transplant nephrology team. Kelsie is a board certified Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP-BC), who comes to us with extensive ICU experience. For the past three years, Kelsie has worked in the adult surgical/burn/trauma intensive care unit (SICU) here at Washington University. Five years prior to that, she worked in the medical/surgical adult ICUs at Unity Point Health Methodist in Peoria, Illinois, and at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Belleville, Illinois.

As nurse practitioner, Kelsie will have both inpatient and outpatient (clinic) responsibilities at the WU/Barnes-Jewish Hospital kidney transplant program, one of the largest and oldest transplant programs in the United States.

“I am very excited to take on a new job and learning opportunity,” says Kelsie. “I not only feel well supported and welcomed by the Division of Nephrology, but also lucky to have become part of such an elite program. I am very much looking forward to furthering my specialty, and getting to know and take care of transplant recipients by delivering the best care possible.”

Kelsie grew up in small farming community in central Illinois. Her mother, a nurse, was the inspiration for Kelsie to go into healthcare. Kelsie earned her BS in Nursing from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville – Edwardsville, IL, and her MS in Nursing from the Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College.

Her “off-time” activities include spending time with her family and friends, taking her dog, Penny, to the park and trying out different restaurants.

Welcome to the division, Kelsie!
