Karen Farnum | Professional History

Usual Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in Lowell Office.

Karen received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Lowell and her Master’s and Doctorate Degrees at Northeastern University. She is certified as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner by the American Nurses Credentialing Center and is a Fellow in the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. She is a Lowell native and has worked as a RN in Pediatrics at the former St John’s Hospital, taught in the LPN Program at Greater Lowell Vocational Technical High School and in the RN/ADN Program at Northern Essex Community College. Most recently she was an Assistant Clinical Professor in the PNP Program at Northeastern University in Boston, MA.

Karen has practiced in Greater Lowell and the North Shore areas as a PNP for over 20 years. She enjoys providing health care for children of all ages. Away from the Office, Karen enjoys spending her time with her husband, four children, daughters in law, son in law and her grandchildren.

Children are our greatest assets, they are unique individuals who are developing and growing at their own pace. Their health care needs are varied and are met through a recognition of the child, their caregivers and a consistent relationship with their Primary Care Provider. The PNP provides developmentally appropriate health care, guidance, tools to promote growth and development.
