What is Sunrise Family Practice?

As the name implies Sunrise is a new day, a fresh start, a new beginning, and can be a brighter day, every day. Sunrise Family Practice is an independent clinic founded by Jololene Allan, APRN, FNP-BC who has a passion for helping others. What does APRN mean?  APRN stands for Advance Practice Registered Nurse for which I am licensed in the State of Utah. FNP-BC stands for Family Nurse Practitioner- Board Certified by the national organization, American Nurses Credentialing Center. This certification requires re-certification in my specialty every five years to maintain my state licensure. A nurse practitioner is a four-year degree professional registered nurse, with additional educated and training, at least the Master’s degree level, to provide health promotion and maintenance through diagnosis and treatment of acute illness and chronic conditions.

Our Mission is to listen to your healthcare concerns and needs and to offer individualized healthcare- healthcare for all.

Our clinic hours are designed to serve working individuals and families who need evening appointments for their normal healthcare needs. We recognize the difficulty and financial impact of trying to get off work and take kids out of school, when obtaining regular healthcare during “normal business hours” of a day time clinic.

Same day appointments are available. To make an appointment you can call the office at 385-645-7474 or contact us
