Blaine Guelde

Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner


Blaine Guelde is a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner who returned home to the Orlando area
last year after a 13-year hiatus travel nursing and furthering her education. Blaine has been in
healthcare for over nineteen years starting as a nurse tech at Florida Hospital Orlando then as a
registered nurse for three years in the Cardiac ICU.

Blaine did her under grad studies at Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences (now AdventHealth
University) and in May 2013 she graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond,
Virginia with her Adult-Geriatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. She continued on and in August 2019
she completed University of Cincinnati’s online post-graduate certificate Psychiatric Mental Health
Nurse Practitioner program.

Blaine’s first position as a nurse practitioner was with the Acute Pain Management Service at the
University of Maryland’s R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where she helped provide support to
patients with medications and with non-medication techniques. She spent two and a half years on
APMS before starting with Integrative Medicine. Blaine spent January 2016 to January 2020 at the
University of Maryland’s Center for Integrative Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. During this time, she
was involved in research, education, clinical work, and leadership in the inpatient and outpatient
settings. As a member of the Center for Integrative Medicine Blaine was trained in several techniques
including Reiki, mindfulness techniques, yoga nidra, expressive arts and other mind-body techniques.

Blaine is so happy to be home where she is able to spend time with family and friends again. She has a
passion for helping others heal, being the positive change the world needs, and leaving others better
than when she found them. While most of her days are focused on prescribing medications, non-
medication techniques and whole person wellness is what drives her. Blaine continues to seek
educational opportunities to further enhance her knowledge and abilities.
