Kristin Cardin, Nurse Practitioner
As a nurse practitioner who specializes in geriatrics, Kristin Cardin takes a comprehensive approach to care, which starts with listening carefully to her patient.
After graduating from the University of New Hampshire, Kristin began her career as an occupational therapist concentrating in geriatrics. She served as an occupational therapist in various home health and skilled nursing facilities as well as acute care and rehabilitation hospitals in the Boston area. Kristin received her bachelor’s of science degree in nursing from the University of Massachusetts, from which she also holds a master’s degree in advanced practice nursing.
Prior to joining the Division of Aging in 2010, Kristin was on staff at Faulkner Hospital, where she provided post-operative nursing care for seven years. She received awards for excellence in clinical practice and teaching and for excellence in breast cancer support and awareness. She has also served as a visiting nurse. Her vast experience in physical rehabilitation and nursing has made her a valuable resource for information and management approaches relating to the care of older adults.
Kristin has composed her own mission statement: “For me, the health care field has always been much more than a profession. In fact, it is my passion. My career path from occupational therapist to nursing has taught me the importance of treating the whole person, with a strong focus on improving the quality of life of my patients and their families.”
