Ibrahim Iftoni is a board-certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. He started his career nineteen years ago as a certified nursing assistant. He quickly rose through the ranks by getting his nursing degree at the University of Texas at Arlington. He worked in several hospitals and long-term care facilities as a geriatric/ psychiatric/ ICU and occupational health nurse. Iftoni felt a special connection with the psychiatric population and decided to pursue a career in mental health as a psychiatric nurse practitioner. He got his master’s degree at Walden University and is embracing the opportunity to make life better for the psychiatric population and people in his community. Iftoni does not view mental illness as a disease process, or as one’s identity, but as an obstacle in life that can be neutralized with the appropriate help. In his free time, he enjoys volunteering at the local shelter, playing soccer with his children, and vacationing with his family.
