Ginger Smith, FNP-C

About Ginger
Primary Service:

Ginger Smith, FNP-C, joined SLV Health's Family Practice at SLV Health’s Stuart Avenue clinic in 2018. Ginger is not a stranger to the San Luis Valley, having attended middle school in Alamosa “a long time ago,” she jokes. She most recently was practicing in the Touchstone Pueblo West clinic, a part of the Centura Health Physician Group and has experience in rural health clinics. “When I was an RN, I also had experience in a cardiac catheterization lab, and in an advanced telemetry unit, both of which were really interesting,” commented Smith.

Ginger graduated with her Bachelors from the University of Southern Colorado and then completed the Family Nurse Practitioner Program with an emphasis in acute care from CSU-Pueblo with a Master’s of Science in Nursing. Ginger is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

She likes family practice because she is able to see a wide variety of patients and cases, from infants to the elderly, she likes the routine and the challenges. “It’s never boring in family practice.  I love the variety of patients I see.” When not working, she likes to read, do crafts, go camping and fishing. She is married with three children.

"She cares about me and my issues as if I was someone important to her. She has never made me feel small or insignificant." -Patient of Ginger Smith
