For the Fall 2019 term, Frontier Nursing University (FNU)’s featured preceptor is Ramona Scott, DNP, WHNP.
For 30 years, Ramona has served at Women’s Care Group in Knoxville, Tenn. where she is currently a women’s health nurse practitioner. She sees a wide variety of GYN and OB patients, taking the time to get to know each one and understand their needs. She is also a certified menopause practitioner.
“Ramona provides excellent care to her patients and it is clear that they place a lot of trust in her,” said FNU alumna Sarah Martina, who nominated Ramona for the award.
Sarah describes Ramona as a life-long learner committed to providing up-to-date, evidence-based care. Ramona is always looking for new and better ways to help her patients.
In addition to her clinical work, Ramona is a passionate advocate for the nurse practitioner (NP) profession. She is currently helping to develop a new WHNP program at Tennessee Tech University, and she consistently precepts multiple students every year.
“She is an excellent teacher with high standards but is also warm, welcoming and funny! I learned so much from her!” said Sarah.
Ramona is also an FNU alumna: she earned her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree in 2013.
Thank you, Ramona, for serving women well and teaching students to do the same!
