Colleen Gilmore, MSN, RN, ANP-BC

Nurse Practitioner

Colleen graduated from Barnes School of Nursing (now Goldfarb) in 1985 with a nursing diploma, then from Webster University in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in nursing and finally from Goldfarb School of Nursing in 2009 with a master’s degree as an adult nurse practitioner. After completing her training in nursing school and working as an undergraduate nurse in a rotation of diverse nursing floors within Barnes Hospital, Colleen chose to work in both the palliative care and hospice services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. There, she does what she loves: treating the whole patient and family, caring for patients with acute symptoms related to their terminal illness. Supporting them in a most difficult and vulnerable time of life. Colleen says her work as an educator and advocate is important. “I love being at the bedside,” she says. “Caring for patients and their families is the most important thing I do.”
