Faculty Bio
Rhonda Ramirez
EdD, RN
I am the Director of the FNP Program and am proud to say that I am an alum (1997) of the program. For the past 15 years I have been a Family Nurse Practitioner at Native American Health Center in Oakland providing care to primary care patients. Occasionally, I provide care to adolescents at High School-Based Clinics in Oakland & Alameda. Both settings have been extremely rewarding to me. Each semester I invite FNP interns to precept at both of my clinics to gain the valuable experience I have come to cherish.
