Hi, I’m Mirna Khanafer the nurse practitioner at Michigan women’s care. For those of you who don’t know me, here is a little bit of my story and how I ended up where I am today.
Before I even began nursing school, I always had an interest for obstetrics and gynecology. About 6 years ago at Beaumont Wayne, I met the doctors while on my OB nursing rotation. I fell in love with the specialty even more and really admired the way the doctors practiced. It is now my greatest pleasure to have the chance to work beside them. I look forward to meeting and caring for all of our wonderful patients.
What is a Nurse Practitioner?
