About Christopher Riggan, MSN, PMHNP

Christopher Riggan received his MSN as a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC. He’s been a full-time primary care nurse since 2003, providing primary and psychiatric care to a wide variety of patients in acute distress. He specializes in the area of neuroscience and has become proficient in his understanding of the brain and how to manage the care of patients that have an impairment of the brain or nervous system. He has made it the primary objective throughout his career to incorporate the mind and the body into every treatment regimen, bridging the gap between a patient’s physical health and mental health.
