OKLAHOMA CITY – Throughout Barbara Moore’s 32-year career in health care, she has always loved the challenge of finding the right diagnosis and medicine to help patients feel better so they can experience a higher quality of life.
Moore brings those problem-solving skills and a deep desire to help others to her role as a family medicine nurse practitioner at Mercy Clinic Northwest Family in Oklahoma City.
“As a new provider at Mercy, I look forward to building friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime,” said Moore. “My style of care is a partnership with patients so they are comfortable participating in the health care decisions that impact their lives. I love to learn about my patients’ families, pets, jobs and hobbies.”
She began her career as a registered nurse then decided to go back to school to become a nurse practitioner. She has worked in hospital-based nursing, home health, geriatrics, community health, American Indian health and in the private sector. She also worked overseas for a short time in a rural clinic.
Moore received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky, and her master’s degree in the family nurse practitioner program from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City.
In her spare time, Moore enjoys music, reading, spending time with her two dogs and is involved in her local church. She also teaches classes in the nurse practitioner program at Frontier Nursing University.
