Rachel Giraudin, MSN, FNP-C, RNFA, CNO
Rachel Giraudin, MSN, FNP-C, RNFA, CNO, grew up in Katy, Texas and is currently practicing in San Antonio alongside the doctors at South Texas Colorectal Center. She graduated from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas for her undergrad and nursing school. She then continued her education at the University of Texas-Arlington in Arlington, Texas for her masters and Nurse Practitioner school.
In nursing school at TCU, Rachel was immediately drawn to surgical nursing. She became passionate about the true team approach of surgery. She became drawn to helping patients through surgery because she understands that each patient is the most important person to so many people at any given time. Being able to help patients choose the right course of treatment, so that they may find immediate relief, has become a true passion of hers. During the course of assisting patients in their surgical journey, Rachel enjoys building relationships with her patients and connecting with them. Rachel is able to provide comfort to each patient during what many patients would consider, a ‘scary process’ and where many feel especially vulnerable. As a Nurse Practitioner, Rachel looks forward to being able to provide compassionate care while functioning as an extension of the doctors she works with. Her areas of interest include both genetic testing and counseling for cancer risk.
In her free time, you’ll find her cheering on the TCU Horned Frogs, spending time with her husband and dog-child, volunteering with Weimaraner Rescue of Texas, or planning her next vacation.
