Aaron Bartek, APRN-C | Emergency Care for Your Family

Aaron Bartek, APRN-C

Born and raised near Ithaca, Nebraska, Aaron graduated from Bishop Neumann High School in Wahoo, NE. Aaron Bartek completed his boards in the Fall of 2018. He received his masters degree in Science Nursing—Family Nurse Practitioner from Purdue University and his bachelor's degree in Science Nursing (BSN) from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Married to Riley for over five years, they have four children: two boys, two girls. They both enjoy spending time as a family.

SMC provides a great small town environment. I love having the potential to make a difference in a person’s life as a Nurse Practitioner. I continue to enjoy being a part of the Wahoo community.

Having four children five and under has been an exciting and rewarding challenge and has helped me in all aspects of my life and career.  The various health issues that occurred with them have helped me become a more well-rounded practitioner.

—Aaron Bartek, APRN-C

One of his favorite things to do, besides being a dad and nurse, is to assist with farming. Aaron helps his father and brother on the farm in the surrounding area raising corn and soybeans.  Besides farming, he also truly enjoys Husker Football.
