Alyssa L. Kidder, MSN, RN, is a charge nurse on Menninger's Comprehensive Psychiatric Assessment Service


Alyssa has more than 10 years of experience and is a recent nominee for The Clinic's annual Nursing Excellence in Direct Patient Care Award.


She earned her bachelor's degree in Nursing from Texas Woman's University and a master's degree in Nursing Leadership and Administration from Western Governors University.


Of working at Menninger, Alyssa says she's proud to work where treatment teams have a profound impact on people's lives. Helping patients "begin their recovery journey and seeing them smile again is incredibly rewarding.
