Randall “Luke” Kent, FNP-C, is our newest provider to join The Corvallis Clinic QuickCare clinics. He will begin to see patients in mid-September.
To make a same-day, online appointment at either QuickCare-Corvallis or QuickCare-Albany, go to www.quickcare.clinic.
Mr. Kent earned his Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner, from the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, in 2018. He is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
He says he was drawn to healthcare because he always loved “being there” for those in need. “Healthcare is a field that revolves around helping others and has been very rewarding for me. I am continually challenging myself professionally and I feel that becoming a nurse practitioner has fulfilled my goals while giving me a great deal of satisfaction with the impact that I can have on people’s lives.”
As a registered nurse, Luke has worked in the emergency department at Southern Ohio Medical Center, as a flight nurse for Air Evac Lifeteam, and in a mobile ICU for Portsmouth Ambulance, all in Portsmouth, OH. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Ohio University, in Athens, OH, in 2014.
Outside of his practice, Mr. Kent enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, and anything else that keeps him active and outside. “I am very passionate about the outdoors and do what I can to ensure that future generations can enjoy them as I do.”
