After six years of caring for critically sick babies as a NICU nurse, NP Allison Wescott returned to school to earn her family nurse practitioner degree. It seemed like a natural fit, she says. “After providing nursing care for babies – and their moms – I saw that taking care of families was something I wanted to do. I enjoy developing long-term relationships with my patients, caring for the whole family over the years – from kids to grandparents.”
NP Allison has a particular interest in women’s health, specifically preventative care – pap smears and breast exams, for instance. “I think it’s beneficial when someone can see one provider for multiple issues. I want to be someone women feel they can talk to about any aspect of their health.”
Nurse practitioners are able to function much like physicians. They can perform physical exams, order procedures, diagnose symptoms and prescribe medication.
A wife and mother of two toddlers, NP Allison wants to get to know the residents of southern Fauquier. “I’ll be getting out in the community. It’s one way I can give back.”
