SOMERSWORTH – Family Nurse Practitioner Kelly Moore, APRN, NP-C, has joined Greater Seacoast Community Health. She will see children and adults at both Goodwin Community Health in Somersworth and Families First Health & Support Center in Portsmouth.
Before earning her Nurse Practitioner degree from the University of New Hampshire last spring, Moore worked for eight years as a registered nurse. Most of that time was spent in cardiac care at Portsmouth Regional Hospital and at Elliot Hospital in Manchester.
While studying for her nurse-practitioner degree, Moore did a five-month internship at Goodwin Community Health, working under Family Nurse Practitioner Paige Wilder, APRN NP-C.
Moore says she chose to work in a family practice because of her interest in preventive health and health promotion and in “looking at the patient as a whole across the lifespan.” She adds that she is happy to be working at Goodwin and Families First because “a community health center is not just primary care; patients can also get other services like dental and behavioral health care.”
Moore is board-certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
