Aric Ray, FNP

Sierra Vista, AZ

“My job is to take care of God’s people like I would want someone to take care of me.”

About Me

I started out as a janitor working in a hospital. I understand the value of hard work and perseverance. I will never take anyone else’s journey for granted or judge them. We don’t know what is in store for us.

Education and Training

Master's degree in nursing (Grand Canyon University)

Favorite activity outside of work

I enjoy playing the guitar and boxing. I also enjoy being a homebody with my children watching movies and just hanging out.

Professional Experience

CNA, LPN and RN at Life Care Center; then RN at CVMC in Sierra Vista working med-surg and orthopedic units; then 14 months at New Era Family Practice as FNP before starting here at Optima with their great staff.

What will make you a great provider?

I will give every patient the respect and dignity they deserve. We don't know a patient's journey or how they got to this point with their health, but this is not for us to judge. I will strive to give them the efficient and compassionate care they deserve.
