Barbara Ferrell, NP
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner:
In Progress at California State University, Fresno
Samuel Merritt University
Sonoma State University
I became a Registered Nurse 22 years ago and a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2010. I have worked in a variety of hospitals and outpatient clinics as a nurse and mostly in college health as a FNP and have witnessed how much healing occurs simply through connection. I find the psychological aspects of healing and patient care fascinating, and I am currently studying for a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Certification through California State University Fresno.
I enjoy movies, hiking, playing hacky sack, reading novels and spending time with friends and family when I am not in school! I love to garden and spent six months living in a tent as part of an agricultural apprenticeship in organic farming on the campus of University of California Santa Cruz.
