Randa Kucey, Family Nurse Practitioner
Randa is a family nurse practitioner, certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. In 2017 she completed her Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) from the University of Portland, a program with a corner stone of providing care for the underprivileged and underserved. She earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Saskatchewan in 1985. She has worked in a variety of areas within the hospital, in the home care setting and as an educator for nursing students. She obtained her Masters in Nursing from the University of Phoenix with a focus on becoming a leader of change in healthcare in 2011.
She endorses an ecological model of health which encompasses not only the individual but surrounding support networks, community and sense of belonging. Considering the emotional impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACE) expressed as physical symptoms is an ongoing consideration. The personal quality of mindfulness is emphasized as a strategy that leads to increased awareness, healthier choices and a more joyful life. Healing the whole person is achieved by partnering with the patient and other clinicians to enhance overall wellness.
Randa is the wife of a physical therapist and mother of four adult children. Now that she has completed college, she is finding her way back to living a balanced life: enjoying her family and friends, playing hockey with her husband (with no idea how to handle a puck), camping, hiking, canoeing, swimming, yoga, photography, playing the piano, reading, writing and knitting.
