About Melissa Bascle, FNP-C

Melissa Bascle, FNP is a board-certified family nurse practitioner with over 20 years of experience providing care to diverse populations in various healthcare settings. In 2015, she joined Southern ENT Associates and currently treats pediatric patients in the Morgan City and Houma, Louisiana offices. 

Before becoming a nurse, Ms. Bascle worked as a registered respiratory therapist at Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans for many years. In New Orleans, she earned her diploma at the Alton Ochsner School of Allied Health. 

Ms. Bascle worked primarily in the neonatal and pediatric intensive care units. She also cared for adult patients in various clinical areas. After so many years of commuting while raising a family, Ms. Bascle decided to move her career closer to home, where she worked for a home care company delivering oxygen and CPAP supplies in the Tri-Parish area.  

After receiving her first bachelor's degree, she left home care for an opportunity to teach in the cardiopulmonary care program at Nicholls State University. During clinical rotations with her students, she realized her desire to become a nurse. She attended Nicholls State University for both her undergraduate and graduate nursing degrees and is proud to have been among the first graduating class at Nicholls to receive a Master of Science in nursing.

Ms. Bascle, or “Missy," is a lifelong resident of Terrebonne Parish. She was born and raised in Donner, graduated from H.L. Bourgeois in Gray, Louisiana, and currently resides in Houma with her family. 

She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, and an associate member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology. 

In her free time, Ms. Bascle enjoys yoga, being outdoors, and spending time with her husband and children. She is the proud mom of two young men who are both serving our country in the armed forces.
