Today for our Provider Spotlight, we are pleased to introduce to you Bonnae Nawara, RN CPNP. Bonnae is fairly new to Urgent Care for Kids, joining our team in August, but has quickly proved to be a knowledgeable and valuable asset to our medical staff. She rotates working at all of our Houston-area clinics, so you may have seen her in The Woodlands, Cinco Ranch, West University, or Spring. We sat down with Bonnae to learn a little more about her passion for pediatrics and why she loves Urgent Care for Kids.
1. Tell us why parents should let you care for their children.
I have always loved working with children and helping them to be healthy. I try to treat each child as I would treat my own family, and in doing that I feel that I am able to give quality care to each child I see. I have been a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner for 20 years. I have received my Master’s in nursing in Community Health Nursing from Texas Woman’s University, my Pediatric Nurse Practitioner license from the University of Texas/Texas Woman’s University, and am certified through the Pediatric Nurse Certification Board.
2. Why did you choose to specialize in pediatrics?
I have always liked working with children, and prior to obtaining my CPNP, I was a school nurse. I was also the Girl Scout leader for each of my daughters, and den mother and scout assistant for my son.
3. What is your favorite thing about working at Urgent Care for Kids?
My favorite thing about working for Urgent Care for Kids is that I am able to provide quality care in an environment that is pleasant and not as traumatic for children. I also like being able to reassure parents that their child is being taken care of to the best of my ability.
4. What is your favorite thing about living in Houston?
My favorite thing about living in Houston is that it is close to my family. I grew up in Baytown and moved to Houston when my husband and I got married. All of our children and their families live close to Houston, so I can see them and my grandkids often. Houston also has so many things to offer for children and families.
5. What is one thing that’s unique about you that most people do not know about?
I have multiple hobbies, including singing, sewing, quilting, flower arranging, and cake decorating, and I am always trying to learn more!
