Our Graduates are Prepared for Success!

FNA was instrumental in making my dream career a reality.  It provided me with the knowledge and structure to move from nursing to starting my own business in functional medicine and wellness consulting. 

I now handle my own clients and am grateful to FNA for empowering my career transformation and am passionate about encouraging other nurses to take this rewarding journey!

Because of Melissa’s incredible mentorship program, our nurses are well-equipped to assist our clients in reaching their highest and healthiest potential.

 I cannot recommend this program and all of
its resources highly enough!

I am so glad I found this program! FNA has provided me with the tools and information to help my clients create an environment for their bodies to heal and achieve wellness! 

Not only did FNA teach me about functional medicine but I was also prepared with all of the tools needed to launch my own business!

As a nurse with NO background in business creation I am happy to report that I have
successfully launched my own practice!

FNA has given me the education and with it the resources to confidently assess and recommend various courses of action.

I thank God for Melissa who heard the call and answered it for a change in nursing education. 

Through her gifts and talents I've been able to bless many others. 

   Jodi O'malley MSN, RN

Melissa's Functional Nurse Academy has every aspect I wanted to have for my functional medicine practice without me having to do the leg work!

 The educational portion of the program is priceless and Melissa does an excellent job explaining how the lab results connect and can indicate specific imbalances.

Her organization with the steps to setting up the business portion is also extremely easy to follow and complete quickly to get up and running!

I am so grateful Melissa created this program as it is providing me with the opportunity to be my own boss to live a life of purpose as well as being financially abundant by sharing my experiences & knowledge with the world to impact others' health & wellness journeys.

This course was perfect! I am so thankful I found this program.

FNA helped me to learn not only the practice of functional medicine but also provided me with step by step instructions of how to start my own practice. 

Melissa did a fantastic job explaining how to start a functional nursing business and provided practical and valuable insights!

The amount of material I was provided with has been so valuable to me in my practice and with my business launch!

I highly recommend other nurses take this program!

Meet the FNA Founder

Melissa Schreibfeder is a devoted follower of Christ, a seasoned registered nurse, and a globally acclaimed radio show host. With over a decade of experience, she holds board certifications as a functional medicine practitioner and nurse coach.  She is recognized as an approved continuing education provider (#50-33409).

Her personal health challenges, including battling an undiagnosed autoimmune condition and chronic Lyme disease, ignited Melissa's journey into functional medicine. Through firsthand experience, she witnessed the profound impact of functional medicine in reversing disease processes.

Melissa's professional journey has encompassed roles as a nurse educator and influential public speaker, where she has dedicated herself to educating and empowering others. Frustrated with the limitations of the conventional medical model—both as a nurse and a patient—Melissa founded a private practice focused on functional medicine. Here, she champions patient rights, addresses root causes of illnesses, and implements comprehensive lifestyle and nutritional interventions to foster healing.

Driven by her success in clinical practice, Melissa established the Functional Nurse Academy, a cornerstone of her mission to transform healthcare. This academy is dedicated to nurturing an alternative healthcare model centered on genuine health and wellness. It equips nurses with the knowledge and tools to practice beyond the confines of traditional sick care, empowering them to find fulfillment in their careers while advocating for holistic approaches to wellness.

Melissa's journey—from navigating her own health challenges to becoming a leader in functional medicine and nurse education—illustrates her unwavering commitment to transforming healthcare paradigms. Her integration of faith, expertise, and passion for holistic health underscores her mission to promote comprehensive well-being in her community and beyond.
