Dr. Vachon's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Vachon "I became a Registered Nurse in 2004 to help patients and change lives. I knew that when I graduated with my Associates Degree in Nursing I would become a Nurse Practitioner and eventually earn a terminal degree in nursing. In 2010, I graduated with my Masters of Science in Nursing with a focus as an Adult Primary Care Nurse Practitioner. I completed my Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree in August of 2017. The focus of my doctoral research is using Pain Coping Skills Training in the treatment of osteoarthritis for older patients living in rural areas. I believe that earning my DNP has enabled me to be a better voice for my patients and give me the tools necessary to change my practice. I believe that the best clinicians are the ones that empower their patients to take an active role in their healthcare. In 2014, I earned a national 5-Star Patient Satisfaction Award. I treat my patients the way that I want to be treated as a patient – with kindness, compassion, and a caring touch. I love teaching and with the current shortage of nursing faculty, I believe one way I can make an impact on the healthcare crisis is to teach other nurse practitioners and students. By growing the field of expert clinicians trained to give care the way it should be, I can have a greater impact on patients and families."
