Cara Wolf, BSN, RN

Family Nurse Practitioner, Fall 2017 Cohort

In 2012, I moved from a small town in New Hampshire to attend the University of Utah College of Nursing’s Nursing Early Assurance Program (NEAP); in 2016, I earned my bachelor’s degree of science in nursing. Since then, I’ve worked in the University of Utah of Utah’s float pool. In 2017, I started graduate studies in the family nurse practitioner program. From a young age, I was interested in primary care due to the consistency of care, as well as the diversity in patient populations. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I have experienced uncomfortable encounters in health care settings and through these experiences, I’ve become passionate about improving health care for LGBTQ patients. For my DNP scholarly project, I hope to improve student and provider knowledge regarding LGBTQ care in the primary care setting. I am adamant in my stance that all humans, regardless of race, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic status, etc. deserve respect, compassion, and equality! When I’m not working or at school, I love spoiling my foster pup, trail running, baking bread, going to bar trivia, and reading.
