Rose Staden, NP


Rose Staden, NP, is a nurse practitioner  at UW Health. Rose cares for patients who are living with HIV, a virus that attacks the body’s immune system and can lead to AIDS if not properly managed.

Understanding that people are fearful when they get an HIV diagnosis, Rose educates patients and explains how they can successfully control the virus with advanced, new medicines and careful follow-up. She offers personalized treatment plans that include telehealth and mail order lab and pharmacy options.

Rose also prescribes HIV prevention medicine for high-risk individuals, treats related sexual health conditions and offers primary care. Her work is part of the HIV Care and Prevention Program.

Her care philosophy is to listen closely to patients’ goals for their health and suggest ways to successfully manage or prevent HIV in a way that works with their lifestyles. She finds it rewarding to see patients move beyond their diagnosis and lead fulfilling lives.

During free time, Rose enjoys hiking and mountain biking.

With the right treatment, HIV is a manageable condition. Individuals and families can carry on with their education, careers and personal lives.
