Doctor of Nurse Practice, Adult Medicine
Hi, I am Kim Paxton. I am originally from Wisconsin, where I had lived for 25 years but raised in Southern California.
I earned my Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) and a Leadership in Health Informational Technology Certificate (LHIT-C) from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in 2012, and MSN as an Adult Nurse Practitioner from Marquette University in 1999.
I am an ANCC board-certified adult nurse practitioner and advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) with a focus on health promotion and prevention. Health promotion, prevention, and individual wellness focus on the care that I engage in with my patients. I believe that the process of maintaining health is a shared partnership between the patient and their health care provider. It is a collaborative individualized care process in which I employ an evidence-based approach blended with the patient’s immediate needs, capabilities, and health goals.
As a health care provider, I strive to empower and support a patient’s ability to manage immediate care needs and achieve long term health goals. I utilize an integrative approach to acute and chronic care needs by integrating medication to address health issues and technologic, nutritional, physical activity, and mental wellness interventions.
If your care needs exceed my practice scope, the team here at Heartlight clinic, and I will help you navigate the process.
