Patricia Ridings, APRN

Patricia Ridings is a Family Nurse Practitioner. She usually goes by Pat or Patty.  She is certified through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

She grew up in a large family on a farm in rural Pittsburg Kansas. She and her husband and daughter live in rural Cherokee, Kansas.   They have a dog and a cat.   Patty’s interest as an RN took her to Kansas City for a year and then more locally  working in areas such as ICU, Dialysis, Medical Surgical, Mental Health, Pediatrics and OB.  She taught at Labette Community College for 6 years.  The majority of her career has been caring for families in the local community.  

She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing  from Pittsburg State University  in 1989.  She later earned her Master’s degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2011 from Pittsburg State University.  

Her experience as a Nurse Practitioner has been serving patients in a family practice setting as well as  time in an  Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology  office. This back ground provided assessment skills and experience to evaluate and manage many health needs.  

It is important to Patty that she is able to work in a setting where she can build a relationship with her patients and give them the best care possible. She can make referrals to specialists when needed and help find necessary resources for  patients.

 Patty enjoys getting to know her patients. She also realizes that sometimes a patient just needs a quick evaluation for a current or acute illness and may already have a regular provider. She is glad to help as a walk in type of provider in these circumstances.  

 When not at work, Patty enjoys attending her daughters sports events,  spending  time with husband and family,  and time enjoying music, volunteering  and gardening.
