Amber Mercer, MSN, APRN, CPNP, brings sincere dedication and understanding for patient care at the Pediatric Associates of Austin. She believes that every child deserves access to compassionate pediatric care, and works hard to get to know each child and their families who entrust her with their child’s care to deliver them the best care possible.
From personal experience, Mrs. Mercer understands how positive experiences with nurses can truly change one’s medical care. Growing up in Houston, Texas, she spent many of her summers volunteering at a family friend’s privately owned hospital, and while getting to know and care for all of the children and their families there, her passion for nursing grew and motivated her to pursue a nursing profession.
Education plays a central role in Mrs. Mercer’s approach to patient-centered nursing. She began her studies at the University of Texas, earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing before completing her Master of Science in Nursing at Texas Tech University and eventually becoming a certified pediatric nurse practitioner.
For the past 6 years, she has been working as a registered nurse (RN) at the Pediatric Associates of Austin, where she is happy and grateful to work with such knowledgeable and genuine providers, nurses and staff to create wonderful medical care for the children there.
She truly believes that she has learned from the best and will continue to grow in order to provide the great experiences for the patients of Pediatric Associates of Austin.
When she’s not learning more about patient care, Mrs. Mercer enjoys spending quality time with her husband, and their family and friends. She also loves to travel, hike, try new recipes and local restaurants, seek out local Texas country artists around Austin, as well as exercise with their rescue dog, Bingham.
