We love what we do, so we practice with a passion.
Dr. P. John Schanen, APRN, FNP-C, ENP-C, San Antonio Clinic Director / CEO
I am passionate about the success of my patients. I love to see them succeed; the greatest success is my patient’s good health, wellness and happiness.
One of my favorite quotes is: “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” ~Schweiter
Born and raised outside of Corpus Christi, Texas, John lived in Helotes for over 14 years now but considers the Boerne to be home. He has been married for 26 years and has two children who are also very supportive and involved in his business. He has been working as a clinician in various ERs in the Corpus Christi and San Antonio areas for the last decade, but has also worked in urgent care and primary care settings. His passion, however, is wellness care and the professional rewards that come with watching his patients thrive in good health.
Before becoming a nurse practitioner, John owned and operated 7 outpatient physical therapy clinics located throughout South Texas for over 10 years. As a non practicing owner, the challenge and reward of not providing direct patient care was missing, so in 2009 he sold the business and enrolled in school with the goal of becoming a nurse practitioner and opening clinics of his own.
When not striving to keep his patients happy and healthy, he enjoys reading, golfing, snow skiing, and traveling with his family. John works in collaboration with Jeffrey Johnson, DO, a family medicine practitioner.
Lacy McMillon, APRN, FNP-C, ENP-C, Bandera Clinic Director
Lacy was born and raised in a small town in Northeast Texas but comes to us from Dallas where she lived for the past 10 years.
She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas at Tyler in 2008. She then went on to complete her Master of Science in Nursing with a focus on family practice from Georgetown University in 2015. She also completed a dual certification study in the specialty of emergency medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston in December 2019.
With over 10 years in the healthcare field, Lacy offers a vast array of experience and knowledge to her patients. Her first three years in advanced practice were spent in a specialized functional medicine practice with a focus on chronic disease prevention and management using lifestyle medicine practices such has bio-identical hormone replacement and nutritional supplementation. She has since been working and continuing her education in the field of urgent and emergent care.
Lacy has been married for 11 years and is a bonafide “dog mom” to her three fur babies. She and her husband are so excited to have been recently transferred to beautiful Bandera. They are thrilled for the opportunity to serve this community side-by-side in their respective professions. When not working, you will likely find the McMillon’s out exploring everything the Hill Country has to offer!
Michael Nye, MPAS, PA-C, Boerne Clinic Director
Michael Nye, PA-C, was born in Fredericksburg, TX. He treasured growing up in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. After graduating from Comfort High School, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. Michael served four years of active duty in the USMC as an infantryman and was quickly promoted to Sergeant (E-5). He was stationed in various places around the world, and while deployed in Panama, Central America, he met his wife of 25 years, Kristi.
After his service in the Marine Corps, he and his wife moved back to central Texas. He graduated, near the top of his class, from The University of North Texas Health Science Center in Ft. Worth, TX. While earning his Master’s degree, Michael received several distinguished honors and scholarships, including the Vicki Moritsugu Memorial Veterans Caucus Scholarship, Top Surgical PA Student Award, First Place Master’s Project, and Outstanding Master’s Project Award. During the course of his schooling, Michael and his wife had their two sons, Daniel and Micah.
Michael enjoys golf, hunting, fishing, gardening, sausage/specialty meat making as well as a general fitness lifestyle such as running, lifting weights, snow skiing in the spring and winter months and biking and hiking in the summer and fall. He lives just outside of Boerne on the same acreage that he did as a child.

What exactly is a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)?
For the certified nurse practitioner (NP), care along the wellness-illness continuum is a dynamic process in which direct primary and acute care is provided across settings. NPs are members of the health delivery system, practicing autonomously in areas as diverse as family practice, pediatrics, internal medicine, geriatrics, and women’s health care. NPs are prepared to diagnose and treat patients with undifferentiated symptoms as well as those with established diagnoses.
Both primary and acute care NPs provide initial, ongoing, and comprehensive care, which includes taking comprehensive histories, providing physical examinations and other health assessment and screening activities, and diagnosing, treating, and managing patients with acute and chronic illnesses and diseases. This includes ordering, performing, supervising, and interpreting laboratory and imaging studies; prescribing medication and durable medical equipment; and making appropriate referrals for patients and families.
Clinical NP care includes health promotion, disease prevention, health education, and counseling as well as the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic diseases. Certified nurse practitioners are prepared to practice as primary care NPs and acute care NPs, which have separate national consensus-based competencies and separate certification processes.
Like physicians, Nurse Practitioners are involved in more than just direct patient care. Many participate in education, research, and legislative activities to improve the quality of healthcare in the United States.
What exactly is an Emergency Nurse Practitioner (ENP)?
An ENP is a board-certified advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) who treats patients of all ages in emergency departments (EDs) or urgent care facilities in collaboration with an interdisciplinary team. ENPs practice in community EDs, trauma centers, critical access hospitals and urgent care clinics. These practice settings require ENPs to work long hours — including night shifts, weekends and holidays — and to be on call.
Since the majority of patients who are seen in EDs are treated and discharged with minor health problems, ENPs must be prepared to provide primary care services, including managing patients with chronic disease conditions, caring for women with obstetric and gynecological problems and caring for infants and young children, who make up a significant percentage of all ED patients. However, ENPs must also be prepared to initiate care for patients with urgent, higher acuity illness, traumas and injuries and to provide acute resuscitation and stabilization of patients with life-threatening emergencies.
Most ENPs are family nurse practitioners (FNPs) who obtain additional emergency specialty education either through the completion of an academic or post-graduate fellowship program or through on-the-job training and continuing education (CE). Nurses interested in pursuing ENP preparation and board certification must first obtain certification as an FNP. Then, you can select from a growing number of academic and post-graduate ENP specialty training programs.
While, like all FNPs, ENPs are prepared to provide primary care services — such as educating patients, managing acute and chronic diseases and prescribing treatments — ENPs must also understand how to recognize and quickly manage complex patient needs. The pace of care translates to ENPs typically seeing a higher number of patients per shift and prescribing a greater number of medications. ENPs must also be masters at multitasking, prioritization and working within a care team.
