Kim Choma DNP, APN, WHNP-BC
As a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, Dr. Choma has dedicated her more than twenty-five years of experience managing the health care needs of women across their lifespan with services that include comprehensive obstetric and gynecological care. As a nurse, colposcopist, and lecturer, she has established herself as an expert in the management of abnormal Pap tests, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and sexually transmitted infections.
Previously, she has provided nursing services in specialized fields, including labor and delivery and practice management. She has also served as a Clinical Adjunct Professor of Nursing at Seton Hall University and has been a Part-Time Lecturer at Rutgers University School of Nursing-Camden. Dr. Choma is a consultant for multiple health care organizations that provide women's health services and has trained health care providers how to perform Pap smears and techniques to address issues with the female lower genital tract. She is also the author of two nursing book chapters on women's health and has co-authored articles on colposcopy standards.
Building on more than twenty-five years of clinical experience in obstetrics, gynecology, and general women's health, I continue to seek ways to improve my own practice and to help other professionals to improve theirs as well.
Anticipating rapid changes in how health care will be delivered over the coming years, I am interested in finding and developing sustainable models for practicing twenty-first century women's health care while maintaining the personalized, human touch that is so important for successful outcomes.
I care about great care for women.

WHAT IS A DNP?
Doctors of Nursing Practice (DNPs) have been providing primary, acute, and specialty health care to patients of all ages and walks of life for nearly half a century. DNPs assess patients, order and interpret diagnostic tests, make diagnoses, and initiate and manage treatment plans – including prescribing medications. They are the health care providers of choice for millions of patients. A DNP is truly "Your Partner in Health."
All DNPs must complete a doctoral program and have advanced clinical training beyond their initial professional registered nurse preparation. Didactic and clinical courses prepare nurses with specialized knowledge and clinical competency to practice in primary care, acute care, and long-term health care settings.
As clinicians that blend clinical expertise in diagnosing and treating health conditions with an added emphasis on disease prevention and health management, DNPs bring a comprehensive perspective to health care.
