I'm specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. I also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women's health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment for them. I'm honored to serve Palm Harbor, Oldsmar, Clearwater, Countryside, Safety Harbor, Eastlake, and Ozona.

My name is Andrea Kerr and I am a nationally certified adult-geriatric nurse practitioner. I earned my Master of Science as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner from the University of Tampa. While studying for my ARNP, I practiced as an RN in a busy local emergency room, receiving countless awards for my excellent patient care and efforts to enhance teamwork. I received my associates and bachelor of nursing from St. Petersburg College. I am a member of the American Nurses Association, American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, and the Tampa Bay Advanced Practice Nurses Council. 
 
I am originally from Toronto, Canada, but grew up in the Clearwater area. Outside of work, I invest my time in my family.  I also enjoy the beach, boating, water sports, snow sports, physical fitness and anything that includes my daughter, Skylar. I look forward to using my many years of practice and familiarity with the area to care for your variety of medical needs. 

I worked in many specialties as an ARNP, to include, psychology, anesthesia, urology, gastroenterology, gynecology, family medicine, geriatrics, holistic and functional medicine. What I like most about being an ARNP is that no day is the same and I can make a difference in patients lives.

 

I have been an RN since 1993.  I received my undergraduate degree at Pittsburgh State University in New York.  I started my nursing career in the operating room at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.  Afterward, I went to Hunter College in NYC for my Masters of Science in Nursing (MSC).  In 1999, I became an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) and worked at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York.

 

In 2006 I moved to Florida with my family.  I am married and have 4 children, 2 biological and 2 stepchildren. We enjoy Disney and all of the adventures that Florida provides to us.

 I decided long ago to focus my lifelong career in nursing so I can support myself and my two children.  I have a wonderful son that is now 25 and a daughter who is now 27 and paving her own path in the medical field.  I also have an adorable three-year-old grandson.  My kids and grandchild are the light of my life.  I love using my skills to nursing to help my patients and others in the medical field.  I love coming to work every day.  I enjoy meeting new patients and getting to know everyone that comes to Medical Center on the Gulf.  I am surrounded by an amazing team of medical professionals.  Come by any time to see me.
