Steika Rapp, Family Nurse Practitioner, Joins McMurry Family Care Center

Liberal, KS – Southwest Medical Center is proud to announce the addition of Steika Rapp, APRN-C, as a nurse practitioner at the McMurry Family Care Center. Rapp will work alongside Dr. R. Kelly McMurry, Dr. Paul Reed and nurse practitioner Baolong Do in Guymon, Oklahoma.

Rapp was born and raised in Hooker, Oklahoma. She says she has deep roots in this region.

“I love the begging district. This is where I grew up and where I call myself home. I was born at Southwest Medical Center, so I’m very excited to work and be a part of this healthcare system,” says Rapp.

Rapp says she knew she wanted to be a nurse at a young age. She credits her grandmother for inspiring her to pursue a career in healthcare.

“My grandmother wanted to be a nurse all her life, and it stuck in my mind. When I was little, she bought me tic tacs, and we played that I was a nurse who distributed medicine Those memories stuck in my memory and then I continued until I became a nurse practitioner.

Rapp earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Panhandle State University. In 2013, she earned her master’s degree in nursing from Graceland University in Independence, Missouri. Previously, Rapp worked as a nurse practitioner at the Stevens County Medical Clinic for 8 years, serving immediate care and inpatients. Rapp says she looks forward to her new role as a family nurse practitioner in the Guymon community.

“I go above and beyond to take care of all individuals as I would if they were a member of my family. I love my patients and I love my job and the commitment to people. They rely on you for their health care and everything. You must be their go-to. Sometimes patients don’t have any family members, so you are that person. It is very rewarding work and I strive to take the time to get to know my patients personally.

When not caring for patients, Rapp enjoys horseback riding and spending time with her family. She is married and has a 3 year old boy and a 5 year old girl.

Steika Rapp, APRN-C, now sees patients at the McMurry Family Care Center, alongside Dr. R. Kelly McMurry, Dr. Paul Reed and nurse practitioner Baolong Do. The practice is located at 123 Medical Drive in Guymon, Oklahoma. She is accepting new patients and most major insurances including Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicare and Kansas and Oklahoma Medicaid.
