Introduction

Julia Fitzpatrick, FNP, DNP, is a nurse practitioner who works in the intensive care unit. She strives to take a personal, individualized approach to care for each patient.

"I like to remind myself that in our intensive care unit, each bed is filled with a person, not just a diagnosis or a set of lab values. And, that person’s life has a very personal and immeasurable value to those who love them,” she says.

Julia enjoys following severely ill or injured patient all the way through their care journey. “What I enjoy most about my work is being able to help patients and families through critical illnesses,” she says. “It is very satisfying to me to see a patient recover.”

From childhood, Julia was inspired to pursue a career in medicine. “My father was a physician,” she explains. “I was able to observe how people were truly thankful for the care that he provided to them. I knew that I wanted to pursue a career where I could make a difference in people’s lives like he did.”

Outside of the intensive care unit, Julia competes in road races and sprint triathlons with her husband. She is also a Star Wars enthusiast and enjoys reading both fiction and nonfiction books in her downtime.
