My name is Nancy Ramirez, I am an acute care nurse practitioner at The Kidney MD. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Texas Tech University Health Science Center and earned my Master of Science degree at The University of Texas at El Paso. I hold a national board certification with the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as an acute gerontological adult care nurse practitioner board certified (AGACNP-BC). As a child, I knew I wanted to enter the medical profession almost as soon as I was able to understand the concept of medicine.
