National Nurse’s Month Profile – Thuy Pham

Thuy Pham is a Nurse Practitioner at WelbeHealth’s Stockton PACE center, which provides health and wellness care in the Stockton and surrounding areas to seniors, helping them live more independently in their homes and communities.  Thuy came to the WelbeHealth team after working as a hospice/palliative nurse practitioner.

Early on Thuy aspired to be a teacher or a caregiver when she grew up.  Her inspiration to become a nurse came due to a family illness.  “My father was really sick when I was a child. We spent a lot of time in the hospital. I was inspired by compassionate nurses and wanted to deliver the same quality care.”, she explained.  Her inspiration is demonstrated daily as she delivers compassionate care to local seniors who can live more independently with the help of Thuy and the rest of the Stockton PACE interdisciplinary care team.  When asked what motivated her each day to serve the community’s local seniors, she replied, “My desire to provide quality healthcare and the wonderful teammates I get to do it with!”

If Thuy could give advice to her younger self to meet the challenges in life, she said it would be “What doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger.”
