Pam King Named Np Of The Year

This article first appeared in issue 20, and was written by Staff.

Adair County nurse practitioner Pam King has been named Nurse Practitioner of the Year, an honor she received at the annual Kentucky Coalition of NP's and Nurse Midwives. The award is given in each state by the American Academy of NP's.

King works for Dr. Chuck Giles and Westlake Regional Hospital. There are more than 480 NP's in the state of Kentucky. They care for many of the same problems that physicians care for. They diagnose and treat patients and they prescribe medication.

"Pam is an excellent practitioner who is very knowledgeable clinically, but she's also been active in working on legislative issues involving nurse practitioners," said Beth Partin, NP for Westlake Primary Care and President of the state coalition.
