BSN, RN, TNCC
Andrea Ward, BSN, RN, TNCC, is a second-year Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) student at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Denver, Colorado, where she also received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and graduated Cum Laude.
Ms. Ward has experience in a variety of settings including inpatient (Telemetry, Neuro Step-down, PACU and Emergency Room), outpatient (Family medicine residency clinic as a Nursing Supervisor) and Informatics (training and support for both inpatient and outpatient EMR systems including EPIC).
Ms. Ward believes that providing greater access to patients seeking assistance with mental health and substance abuse issues is of the utmost importance given her professional experience in the emergency room and witnessing the effects of limited access to such care. It is her goal upon completion of the PMHNP program to provide Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to individuals with substance abuse disorders.
Ms. Ward is a member of the Colorado Nurses Association and the American Nurses Association.
