Kathryn Phelps, APRN
Ms. Phelps received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Southwest Baptist University located in Bolivar, Missouri in 2008. After graduation Kathryn worked for many years as a circulating nurse in the operating room gaining experience from a wide range of medical specialties. Wanting to work more directly with the patient throughout the pre-surgical, surgical and post-surgical plan of care Kathryn returned to school to further her education. Kathryn obtained her Master’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Kansas in 2015. Since the competition of her masters Kathryn has worked in orthopaedics exclusively.
Kathryn was born and raised in the Kansas City area and is pleased to be able to serve in the community from which she grew up. She was fortunate to know from a very young age she wanted to work as a nurse and never considered another career. In addition to being a career choice, working as a nurse practitioner is also a passion and Kathryn is honored to assist patients in their orthopaedic medical needs. Outside of work Kathryn enjoys working on her home and spending time with her family who is close by.
