Meet Elizabeth Pastena, WHNP- BC
Board Certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner
Elizabeth Pastena is a board-certified women’s health nurse practitioner, who believes all women deserve caring, compassionate, nonjudgmental care throughout their lives.
During her undergraduate years she majored in art, but always maintained an interest in biology. She took an opportunity to study public health abroad in Tanzania and Vietnam, and the experience helped her realize she wanted to become a nurse. She saw first-hand how vital maternal health is to all communities and public health overall.
Elizabeth attended Columbia University School of Nursing’s accelerated BS/MS program and specialized in women’s health, with a focus on adolescent and sexual health. Her specialty areas include well-women exams, all types of contraception including placement of IUDs and implants, vaginal infections, and colposcopy. We are proud to have her working at Maiden Lane Medical to provide patient-centered, evidence-based healthcare.
