Annie Law, MSN, RN, PNHNP-BC
After completing her year-long clinical rotation at Pace Mental Health Houston, Law joined the staff as a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Law has been a nurse for more than 19 years. Her extensive health care experience, including stints in hospital ER, ICU, and Oncology departments, serves patients at Pace.
She works with patients who have mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders. A large part of Law’s work is medication management and educating patients about the disease process and its potential side effects.
Law involves her patients in their care plan, and says, “including patients and their families, if possible, in the treatment plan is the best way to provide better quality and get more positive outcomes.” She believes that “the culture of patient-centered care at Pace assures them a better quality of life.”
“Part of who I am is compelled to help others,” says Law. “Nursing provides me the best way to help people feel better and guide them to a new path. Psychiatric nursing gives me an opportunity to help the community in a different way.”
Law was awarded a Master of Science in Nursing from Walden University in 2018. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Prairie View University.
A native Texan, and a self-proclaimed foodie, Law was the first college graduate in her family of eight children. She inspired her younger siblings to seek degrees in medicine and nursing.
