Kim Harris, RN, CWCA, CHRN

Newton Medical Center 

Kim Harris RN CWCA CHRN has been a nurse for 26 years. 18 years bedside CCU, 2 year clinical education, 6 years of wound care. Intensive care was Kim’s first love straight out of nursing school, however when she turned 50 she looked at her plan ahead and thought “I can’t do this for another 20 years” so thus the beginning of wound care.

Wound care journey started as an underling of a wound care nurse, learning on the fly (as most nurses do). Then studying and sitting for the Certified Wound Care Associate certificate.  After passing that exam she swore she wouldn’t take a test again.  However, after starting as the Newton Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center in Newton, KS… test time again.

It was decided by management and staff that the Newton Wound Center would apply for a National Certification for the Hyperbaric Unit. During and for the 2 year process there needed to be more than one certified hyperbaric person in the unit, so the obvious person was the manager. In the next 2 years Kim studied and received the Safety director certification and her Certified Hyperbaric Registered Nurse certificate (which took 2 times to pass).  The HBO unit received accreditation by the Undersea Hyperbaric Medical Society.

Kim is married to Marc who is a RN/MICT and has 40 years plus experience, 4 children 2 of which are in the medical fields and 2 Grands. Kim loves to sing and be involved in music and her favorite hobby is gardening. Kim always will say “digging in the soil is cheaper than a Shrink”.
