Rockstar of the Week: Ron Russette
Every patient that steps into HealthCARE Express has a story, and no one is more eager to hear those stories than this week’s Rockstar of the Week: Ron Russette!
Ron Russette joined the HealthCARE Express team in March 2019 as a nurse practitioner in our Paris, Texas clinic. He has always been interested in the medical field and healing people. He began his career as an EMT and then progressed to become a paramedic. As a paramedic, he came to know many of the emergency department nurses and developed a profound respect for their roles of caring for patients.
“I felt I could contribute more to my community as an RN,” Ron said. So, he returned to academia to pursue a career in nursing. Ron received his nurse practitioner degree from Walden University, completing his clinical hours at regional family medicine clinics and at Christus Saint Michael Hospital in Texarkana, Texas. He earned a post-Master’s certificate in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care from the University of Pennsylvania after completing a Master of Nursing-Family Nurse program. He is also certified in Advanced Trauma Life Support and in BioTE hormone replacement.
Every step of the way, Ron’s favorite part of his job as a nurse practitioner is engaging with his patients. “I enjoy meeting new patients and learning their stories,” he says. He loves that he works in a small community where patients returning to his clinic are not infrequent. This allows him the opportunity to establish an ongoing relationship with those in his care.
Outside of work, Ron enjoys spending time with his friends and family. He and his wife like to travel, and their goal is to experience as many beautiful locations and cultures as possible. His proudest achievement is his family.
