Terri Bostwick, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner / International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
Are you comfortable with a provider who knew she wanted to work in pediatric healthcare since she was eight years old? Are you comfortable with a practitioner who has over 25 years experience in the field and named Alaska's Nurse Practitioner of the Year in 2013?
Then you'll be very, very satisfied with Ms. Bostwick, whose joy for her job is enthusiastically displayed when she declares, "There's never been a time in my whole pediatric career that I didn't love coming in to work."
Your first handshake with Terri Bostwick might leave you with the impression that she's a smart, friendly, woman. You'd be correct. But as your relationship develops, you'll soon realize that your family's healthcare is in the hands of one of APG's most passionate and knowledgeable pediatric providers.
Mrs. Bostwick grew up in rural upstate New York. She spent a lot of time outside, exploring the woods and fields around her home. She worked as a waitress for many years, and enjoyed it a lot; it was also her financial means to get through college. She got her first R.N. degree through Maria College in Albany, New York, then went on to the State University of New York in Utica/Rome for her B.S. in Nursing.
She accepted an internship in the U.S. Air Force directly out of college and was stationed at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas for her first tour. She was lucky enough to return for a 2nd tour to Wilford Hall years later, to manage their pediatric unit. During her 21 years in the military, she was stationed in Loring AFB in Caribou, Maine; Charleston AFB in Charleston, South Carolina and Elmendorf AFB here in Anchorage. She also had 2 Air Force Institute of Technology assignments for graduate school. Her first AFIT assignment was at the University of Utah for her M.S. in Nursing Administration and then at the State University of New York for her M.S. in Child Health Nursing and her Pediatric Nurse Practitioner certification. She enjoyed serving her country and the travels and adventure it brought. After retiring from the Air Force in 2000, she chose to stay in Alaska; she worked at the Alaska Native Medical Center in their pediatric clinic for several years before joining APG in 2004.
Mrs. Bostwick’s favorite part of being a healthcare provider?
Our patients & families of course! HELPING Moms breastfeed and getting babies off to a healthy start in life, LISTENING to their stories, WATCHING them grow up, being involved in their lives and helping families in the day to day care of their children. She also enjoys promoting illness prevention through healthy eating, exercise, and adequate sleep.
Her advice for parents? Remember- you are your children’s best role model - they WATCH you & Learn from you! Read to them, spend time playing with them, take them out to see the beautiful place we live in.
Her hobbies and interests? Anything outdoors- from hiking and skiing, to camping and biking, she’ll try just about anything. She loves the mountains and you'll often find her out on the trails when she's not at work - hiking with her husband and black lab, Buddy. She also loves to travel and bike in order to find and take photos of beautiful scenery.
