RNPA Intensive - Learning Experience

“In a year’s time after taking the RNPA Learning Intensive, my career, my health, my family, my very life has been transformed. I am forever grateful” — Karen DiMarco, RN, iRNPA

“The way of the future of absolute must if you want to make and be the difference in righting the wrongs of healthcare. Kare is a wonderful mentor who has put her soul into this program. Passion, Vision, Perseverance.” — Lana Benton, RN, iRNPA

“The forethought, experience, openness, philosophy and preparation provides all the tools, thought process, and confidence to begin and succeed as an iRNPA.” — Leta Gill, RN, iRNPA

“My experience attending the iRNPA program was a refreshing one, to say the least. This program was packed with life changing information that is not readily taught or available to RN's. This program equipped me with the tools I need to be an iRNPA!  If you are ready for a change after working for many years in the clinical setting, and are driven to help patients and families, this is the program for you!  Karen is a wealth of knowledge that is unmatched in the advocacy process.” — Jamie Long

“Thank you so much for putting together such an incredible RN PA intensive course!  It is truly intensive but so worth it!  I learned a lot and will be using the Medical Time Line and lab spreadsheet with as many clients as i can.  All great information and can’t wait to get my speaking engagements lined up now that I have your fantastic power points!” —  Nan Wetherhorn, Health Care Advisor,

About Me

Over the last two decades, I have witnessed the unsettling depersonalization of our healthcare system. Being an independent patient advocate has enabled me to follow my heart and get back to what drove me to become a nurse in 1999, a desire to truly care for those in need. My vow to you, and your loved ones, is to care for you as if you were part of my own family.


Personal Statement

My goal as your patient advocate is to lessen your stress, and ease your mind.  I am available to coordinate care, communicate with physicians, organize a health history and medication list, facilitate family and healthcare team meetings, and provide education on any health related topic.  As a patient today, there is One Voice that should be heard above all others, and that one is yours!
