Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
Jackie Kuntz began working as a nurse practitioner in the PICU in January of 2015. She sees her role as the constant in the PICU, providing continuity of care for the patients. She works closely with the PICU fellows to develop treatment plans for the patients. She finds every day interesting and values how well different teams work together. For Ms. Kuntz, the most rewarding aspect of her job is seeing the children recover and earning the trust of their families. She also enjoys working with a diverse population of patients. She has not yet become involved in research projects but hopes to study neonatal cardiology and congenital heart disease.
Ms. Kuntz earned a BS in Psychology from Virginia Tech and a BSN from Drexel University. She obtained her MSN from Vanderbilt University in 2014.
