Lily B. Guadalquiver, DNP, ARNP, FNP-CFamily Practice
Specialty: Family Practice
Degree: DNP, ARNP, FNP-C
Training: It takes a lot of professionalism and dedication to serving the community. As experienced medical professionals we may know how to treat diseases, however, being a medical provider in this community entails knowledge beyond books, sometimes a heart goes with every medical issue we deal with every single day. We can’t help but blend in with the community, share the pain and happiness of the people we serve beyond their medical problems and sometimes a little piece of our well-being goes with the prescription we write.
I started as a mid-level provider in 2014 after I finished my Master’s Degree in Nursing, specializing in Family Nursing Practice at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles, California. During my first year at the HCSET, I was studying full time for my Doctoral degree and finally awarded with Doctor of Nursing Practice by Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. That same year I was offered an adjunct faculty position mentoring graduate level students in one of the Universities in the country.
I hold two Bachelor degrees and a Doctoral degree from my home country before I migrated to the US with my family in 2003, practiced in Labor and delivery and Surgical /Operating Room units In Brownsville, Texas. I started teaching at the nursing program and practiced as a midlevel provider in a private clinic in the same city.
Working in this community is as fulfilling as mentoring graduate level students and I am hoping to spend more years doing what I do.
