Eberechi Joan Ani received her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) with Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) specialization from Brandman University (new name UMass Global). She is ANCC Board Certified and received her Master of Science in Nursing/ Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP) and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Phoenix. She also holds a Diploma in Nursing from Abia State University Teaching Hospital in Nigeria.

Ani’s nursing journey started in Nigeria when her grandmother died after complications from a cerebrovascular accident. She was never diagnosed with hypertension while she was alive due to lack of medical care and access to care. As a young girl of 14, Ani had little knowledge of what happened to her grandmother but was devastated from losing her. The experience made her decide to go into the nursing profession. Coming to the U.S. provided her opportunities to improve her nursing skills and expand her education goals. Her motivation for learning and seeking new knowledge helped her acquire bachelor, master, and doctorate degrees in just a few years. 

Ani feels passionate about talking to and encouraging people in whatever life situations they are facing. Her own children needed mental health care, so she decided to go back to school to gain more knowledge in this area. She is now able to help her children and the community in which she lives when it comes to mental health needs. She will be there for her clients, and together they will take it one day at a time. She believes in therapy first, then medication – unless someone’s condition warrants both immediately. 

When she isn’t working, she loves to read and hang out with her family.
