Karen Narum is a board-certified, women’s health nurse practitioner with more than 25 years of experience providing care, information and support to help women make strong health decisions.
In addition to providing specialty care through TMCOne, she is a central part of coordinating the advanced diagnostics and treatment at the TMC Breast Health Program and the TMC High Risk Breast Clinic.
Ms. Narum treats patients as she would treat her own family – getting to know them, listening to concerns, and taking the time to explain the details of health challenges and treatment options.
She was with her mother through a cancer diagnosis and understands how many factors contribute to a patient’s overall quality of life. With this in mind, Ms. Narum helps patients build a care plan that will benefit them medically, socially and emotionally.
She began her nursing career in 1990, initially working as a medical/surgical nurse, and discovered a passion for women’s health shortly after transitioning to labor and delivery.
In 1995 she became a women’s health nurse practitioner, one of the youngest nurse practitioners in the state at that time, and began working in OB/GYN specialty practices and breast health clinics.
A Tucson native, Ms. Narum was raised near Marana and married her high school sweetheart. When time allows, she heads to Apache Lake to water ski and relax with her husband and two sons.
