Julie Pak, Stem Cell Nurse Practitioner at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) near Chicago, knew from a young age she wanted to care for people coping with illness. At CTCA®, she is inspired by the dedicated staff, the therapeutic environment and the patients she calls “the best in the world.”
Pak earned her undergraduate degree from Wheaton College with a focus on theology. She then turned to health care, completing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Rush University in 2000.
After her initial training, Pak worked as a staff nurse in the operating room at a large medical center in Chicago. Starting in 2003, she spent five years as Staff Nurse at CTCA near Chicago, providing care for patients undergoing surgical procedures. After working as an English instructor in South Korea for three years, Pak returned to CTCA and focused again on providing nursing care for surgical patients.
In 2013, Pak joined CTCA near Atlanta as a Staff Nurse focused on preoperative care and recovery from surgery. She then returned to school for further training to become a Nurse Practitioner, earning a master’s degree from Georgia Baptist College of Nursing at Mercer University in 2015. That year, she was inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.
After working as a Nurse Practitioner with a long-term care facility in Illinois, Pak rejoined CTCA as a Nurse Practitioner in the stem cell unit in 2016.
Pak is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, which certified her as a Nurse Practitioner. She is also a member of the United Advanced Practice Registered Nurses of Georgia and the Oncology Nursing Society.
When she is not at CTCA, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their three children, who love playing the piano, cello and violin.
