Melissa Hulett, APN has been in practice as a Registered Nurse since 1998, and obtained her Advanced Practitioner Nursing license in 2016. A native of Arkansas, she has spent time in both clinical and surgical practice. This background prepared her well for a special role with ASO. Since joining OrthoArkansas, she is working directly with OrthoArkansas’ fellowship-trained foot surgeon, Dr. Troy Ardoin, in the diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower extremity-related issues. This provides expanded, expedited access for patients with such issues. Melissa collaborates closely with the surgeons, providing a vital link in evaluating the issue of foot and leg issues, fast-tracking surgical patients, or starting treatment plans aimed at rehabilitation.
Melissa is Board Certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner and maintains several professional affiliations including Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and American Nurses Association.
