Shuang Ran attended Robert Morris University for her BSN. After graduation, Shuang began her nursing career in the neurological and trauma unit at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre (UPMC) where she has worked for seven years. While working as a nurse she completed her Master of Science in nurse practitioner from the Pennsylvania State University, USA. Shuang joined the NHC in 2021, and she is excited to grow and learn within the NHC as she embarks on her new career.

As a nurse practitioner, she can provide all standard nursing services and many more. This includes providing prescriptions, specialist referrals, pathology ordering, simple x-rays and ultrasounds, cervical screening, implanon procedures, and suturing.

Please note that referrals to allied health practitioners (psychologists, physiotherapists, dietitians, podiatrists etc.), pelvic ultrasounds, skin checks, driving medicals and mental health or care plans are outside Shuang’s remit – these procedures should be booked with a GP.
