Kelly White, APRN, has more than 15 years of experience in nursing caring for a variety of different types of patients. Kelly has experience with cardiac patients as well as patients in the emergency room, ICU, CCU, PCCU, PCU, Orth-Spine, Oncology, Stroke units and more. She has a special interest in preventative medicine and women’s health. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree then went on to graduate from the University of Tulsa with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice in Adult Gerontology Acute Care.
When asked what her patients can expect from her, Kelly said, “At a basic level, I want my patients to feel valued as a person so our interactions will be filled with kindness and compassion and hopefully they will feel seen and heard. Secondly, I want my patients to feel like they are getting excellent care rooted in evidence-based research. Lastly, I want to empower my patients through education to live at the highest quality of life possible for them.”
“In healthcare we often see people on their worst days experiencing one of their biggest fears. That one kind, compassionate healthcare worker committed to providing excellent care can deeply impact their life,” Kelly said. “Small acts of kindness truly matter and hopefully we can empower our patients toward a better quality of life.”
Kelly works with Katherine Hays, MD, and looks forward to getting to know her patients.
Aside from medicine, Kelly enjoys reading and exploring new places. She doesn’t have a favorite place to travel to because she’d rather explore a new place than go back to somewhere she’s already been, but her ideal places to travel are where the mountains meet the ocean. That is why she thinks Norway and Thailand are two of the most beautiful places in the world.
Kelly also lived in the Middle East for two and a half years and studied Arabic.
