Angela Beck brings experience to Pawnee Valley Campus Emergency Department
Angela Beck became familiar with The University of Kansas Health System Pawnee Valley Campus during her final clinical rotation and is now caring for patients there.
Beck recently joined the staff in the hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) as an advanced practice registered nurse.
“While I was completing my rotation in the family nurse practitioner specialty, everyone made me feel welcome here,” Beck recalled. “The whole experience exceeded my expectations. I enjoy working in a smaller hospital where you know other staff members and can form close relationships with patients.
“In addition,” she noted, “this facility is immaculate and completely up-to-date. It was wonderful to walk into a relatively new facility that was designed to accommodate patients, staff and visitors. I also am impressed with the amazing customer service offered by everyone in the organization.”
In her new position, Beck manages health conditions and coordinates patient care in the ED.
“I provide medical and emergency interventions based on the healthcare needs of each patient,” she commented. “I also prescribe and monitor medications administered to patients.”
Beck brings more than 11 years of ED experience to Pawnee Valley Campus.
Previous employment includes: RN/paramedic at Barton County Transfer Service in Claflin and Hoisington EMS; and RN in the ED at Clara Barton Hospital in Hoisington.
She earned her associate of applied science in nursing degree in 2009 at North Central Kansas Technical College and associate of applied science-paramedic in 2013 at Barton Community College.
Beck went on to complete her bachelor’s in nursing in 2018 at Fort Hays State University and master’s in nursing last year at United States University in San Diego, Ca.
The advanced practice registered nurse is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Basic Life Support, Trauma Nursing Core Course and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
Beck is originally from Bison and has family in Rush and Barton counties.
