Wickenburg Community Hospital (WCH) Pharmacy would like to welcome Nancy Catalan, Pharm.D., BSND to the organization. She resides in El Mirage with her husband and 2 daughters. Catalan is a highly qualified, bilingual pharmacist with a passion to serve this community. Speaking English and Spanish, she is able to provide additional support and help our Spanish speaking patients with medication review and patient counseling.
Nancy attended Estrella Mountain Community college where she earned her Associates Degree in 2014, then went on to Arizona State University-Bachelor’s in Nutrition and Dietetics in 2017, and in 2021 Nancy graduated with her Doctor of Pharmacy from Midwestern University, College of Pharmacy-Glendale.
As a student Catalan did 4 rotations here at WCH Pharmacy; two rotations with Roger Rose, RPh, former Director of Pharmacy Services and two rotations with Brian Schuele, Pharm D, Director of Pharmacy Services. “They are both amazing preceptors and mentors. Upon completion of Pharmacy School, I knew I wanted to join the WCH Pharmacy team,” says Catalan.
Nancy has worked in a retail Pharmacy setting for over 10 years as a pharmacy technician. During this time, she learned there is a special bond that is built when a patient feels comfortable communicating with their pharmacist. Nancy expresses, “This experience helped me set goals to become a bilingual healthcare provider and fill the need for a Spanish speaking Pharmacist. My hope is to help the town of Wickenburg and surrounding communities with any bilingual Pharmacy services.”
“Hablo español y puedo ayudarte con los servicios de farmacia en Wickenburg Community Hospital Pharmacy.” Says Nancy Catalan, Pharm. D., BSND.
