Helen Douglas - Extensivist - ARC Medicare Wellness

This Family Nurse Practitioner Offers a Holistic Approach with an Extended Scope

Austin Regional Clinic is happy to announce that Helen C. Douglas, RN, MSN, FNP-C, an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, has joined the Extensivist team at ARC Cedar Park.

Born in New York, but getting to Texas as soon as she could, Ms. Douglas says, “I wanted to be an Advanced Practice Nurse since age 12, but my interest in the human body and science began even earlier. I love the comprehensive approach of nursing coupled with the extended scope of practice that being an APN provides.”

Ms. Douglas believes that patients and their families are partners in their care. She adds, “I strive to provide quality care based on a holistic approach, combined with clinical experience, personal observation, and intuition.”

When asked what her favorite health tip is for patients, Ms. Douglas replied “Vaccines are important for adults as well as children. Being properly vaccinated helps you stay healthy and active. Please ask your provider if you are up to date on your vaccinations.”

When not at work, Ms. Douglas enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, reading, traveling, and volunteering. Her favorite Central Texas spots? “Mount Bonnell, Hamilton Pool, Brushy Creek Trail, and Inks Lake, to name a few!” Welcome, Helen C. Douglas.
