Kathleen McCracken


I graduated from Purdue University with a BA in Chemistry and also received a degree in Medical Technology from Indiana University. I received my nursing degree from IU and after some time spent in the Pediatric ICU at Riley Childrens Hospital received my Masters Degree as a pediatric nurse practitioner in 1997.  My experience includes delivering primary care in a private practice setting with a special interest in diabetes education and management. I have also practiced in clinics providing care to local underinsured or uninsured children. I have remained active as a preceptor for several nurse practitioner students and am currently adjunct faculty at Indiana University and Ball State. I enjoy exercising, traveling and spending time with my husband and daughter.
