Caroline Vickers, MSN, APRN, AGPCNP-BC is a native Austinite who has been a nurse practitioner since 2015. She attended The University of Texas Austin and earned a BS in human biology. As she learned about social determinates of health and disease in her undergraduate career, she developed a passion for primary care. She chose to pursue a career in nursing because nurse practitioners are trained to provide excellent patient-focused and evidence-based care.
