Meet Kathleen Crnkovic, the Nurse Clinic Manager at CCFPH. Kathleen joined our team in 2022 and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the clinic. She is a Registered Practical Nurse since 2010 and graduated from Confederation College Practical Nursing. She holds an HBSc in Psychology with a focus on Neuroscience from Lakehead University, where she is currently working toward a BSc Nursing.
With over 9 years of experience working as an RPN, Kathleen has honed her skills in providing care and support to patients with acute care illnesses. She has worked at St. Joseph’s Care Group and at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, where she has gained experience working in a multidisciplinary team environment. Recently, she completed a rotation in the Ambulatory Care Department where she assisted surgeons in minor surgical procedures and investigations, and ketamine and lidocaine infusions.
In her free time, Kathleen is an avid outdoors enthusiast, enjoying activities such as hiking, rock climbing, jogging backtrails, biking, and figure skating.
