Meme N. Vang, APRN, CNP

Adult Gerontology Acute Care, Hospital Medicine
My responsibility is to improve patient outcomes by respecting their situation and utilizing evidence-based interventions.

Approach To Care

The patient and the provider are a team. When it comes to patient healthcare, the provider and the patient must work together to accomplish their desired goals. They will make healthcare decisions based on the patients’ cultural background, their beliefs, their values, and their desires. The provider’s fundamental role is to provide the patient with transparent, honest, and accurate information about the patient’s condition or diagnosis.

Patient healthcare outcomes are optimized when patients have control over how they want to receive care and what type of treatments are given to them. Providers are responsible for doing their best to meet the needs of the patients, and if they are unable to, they will find the necessary resources to fill the gaps. The patient is the most important part of the team, and it is the provider’s duty to give the patient the highest quality of care.

  • English
  • Hmong


This Hmong provider was born in a refugee camp in Thailand. She immigrated to Minneapolis, MN in the early 1990s and grew up in the countryside of Kansas City, KS. She watched her parents scavenge for survival despite their deteriorating health from being overworked yet having no access to adequate healthcare. Therefore, she became a nurse practitioner to help those that mirrored the life of her parents and those that need to be heard when no one is listening because she understands the difficulty of navigating through a different culture, learning an entire language, and having to adapt to an environment that is completely foreign. She hopes this understanding of cultural differences will benefit the ever-changing healthcare field as this knowledge is not only applicable to ethnicities, but to all aspects of personal beliefs experienced by her patients.
