Family and Internal Medicine Nurse Practitioner
Fatima Khadar is a board certified adult/gerontology nurse practitioner in Rhode Island for over 14 years of experience as a nurse practitioner.
She has over 30 years experience in nursing. She started her nursing career as a LPN. She continued her education at the Community college of Rhode Island School of nursing and graduated with an associate of science in nursing which prepared her to become a registered nurse. This was important to Fatima because she wanted to be able to work in that capacity while pursuing her ultimate dream of becoming a nursing practitioner.
She completed the RN to BSN program at the University of Rhode Island and continued in the Master of Science program and graduated as a gerontology nurse practitioner in 2007.
Fatima with her years of experience has worked in local nursing homes and hospitals. For over 12 years she has been giving back to the community by caring for a diversity of patients as a mid level provider in the primary care setting providing preventative and chronic disease management. She also has a background in Psych. She provided clinical assessments, treatments, behavioral and medication management to residents in long term care settings in collaboration with the behavioral health consultant as a member of the interdisciplinary team assigned to the facility.
As a minority and always trying to encourage others that they can accomplish anything they set their minds on, Fatima decided to lecture at the Community College of Rhode Island as assistant professor of nursing for a few years. The impact she made on the students that crossed her path remains greatly cherished.
Her calm and compassionate personality is what makes her develop a long term relationship and “friendship” with her patients. She believes in the holistic approach to patient care and makes every effort to address gaps and psychosocial issues in their care.
Fatima is very family oriented, culturally sensitive and highly involved in her local community organizations.
