Carmen Petsch, DNP was born and raised in Omaha, where she worked as an ICU nurse for seven years. She received her degree in microbiology from the University of Kansas before receiving her degree in nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice from Creighton University. CRMC will be her first job as a nurse practitioner.
Though she loved being a nurse, Carmen chose to become a nurse practitioner to deepen her knowledge and better help her patients. She gained an interest in pulmonology due to having family members who are affected by pulmonary conditions.
“All patients deserve access to high quality health care and deserve a provider who listens to them,” says Carmen. “My priorities as a provider are to stay up to date on the best practices for care and to provide education to my patients so they can have a better understanding of their condition.”
Carmen enjoys spending time outdoors, trying new things and traveling. She also has two dogs and a tortoise!
