Ryan Ernest is a Board-Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. Ryan began his career helping people as a public servant many years ago. He spent over twenty years as a Nationally Registered Paramedic. Ryan worked as a career fireman and paramedic for Henrico County Division of Fire for ten years. While there, he obtained his RN license and began working part-time in a busy Richmond emergency department. He later decided that his mission to help people was not yet complete and went back to school once again to become a nurse practitioner. He has first-hand knowledge with trauma and recognizes that it can come in many forms and in many ways. He recognizes that an individualized and often collaborative model of care is often best. He looks forward to helping those struggling with anxiety and depression. He has a special interest in being available to the first responder population and helping those with PTSD symptoms as well.
