Katrina De Romana MSN, FNPFamily Nurse Practitioner
Hello, I am Katrina De Romana and I have been a nurse for 27 years. I have 4 children and my husband is the office manager. I am from central Illinois and attended Illinois Wesleyan University for my Bachelors degree in Nursing. I have a large family in Illinois and we visit there often. I moved to Pueblo, Colorado in 1991 where I worked in a Level I trauma center ER as a lead clinic nurse and nurse educator for many years. My family and I moved to Castle Rock in 2004 and I worked at University Hospital in the Surgical ICU while pursuing my nurse practitioner degree. In 2007, I graduated from the University of Colorado- Anschutz Campus with my Family Nurse Practitioner post Master’s certificate. Since then I have worked in several settings providing primary care for patients of all ages. As a nurse in the ER and ICU settings, I saw terrible chronic illnesses that were poorly controlled and people who were desperate for good primary care. I became a Nurse Practitioner so that I could help prevent the consequences of chronic disease and help folks stay OUT of the ER and ICU’s as much as possible. My patients find that I am a listener, teacher, promoter of good health and preventive care services, and as an Advanced Practice Nurse can diagnose and treat acute and chronic illnesses commonly seen in a family practice setting. I will advocate for you with other healthcare providers when needed and refer to specialists when appropriate.
