Nurse Practitioner at So Cal Psychiatric Care, San Diego, CA

Chelsea Connell, NP

I graduated as a Nurse Practitioner with a master’s degree in 2022. I obtained my bachelor’s in nursing degree in 2011 and Bachelor of Arts in 2008 which focused on Third World Development. I am certified as a psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioner through the American Nurses Credentialing Center. 
Prior to moving to San Diego in 2019, I worked at several community mental health centers in New York, working with patients with chronic and persistent mental health disorders. I have extensive nursing experience working in multiple trauma centers. I am skilled in treating patients with various Psychiatric conditions such as Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and more. I believe medications are just one set of tools that can be used to address mental health concerns. 
In my spare time I am an avid animal advocate, and work as an animal foster, and I enjoy exploring San Diego.
