Ronald Klug, DNP, AGACNP-BC

Ron’s interest and career in medicine started as far back as 2000, when he became an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). His love for emergency medicine drove his desire to become a Registered Nurse.

In 2010, he began his nursing career as an Intensive Care Registered Nurse, at Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center, in Show Low Arizona. He honed his cardiology nursing skills and transferred to the cardiac catheterization laboratory where he advanced both as a cardiac cath lab nurse, but also advanced to be the clinical manager of that department. In 2018, Ron completed his Doctorate in Nursing with a Focus on Adult Gerontology-Acute Care, with his doctoral research focusing on quality care and Pulmonary Rehabilitation follow up for hospitalized Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients.

In 2022, Ron joined the practice at Cardiovascular Interventions after learning about Dr. Jamnadas through his online presence and was thrilled to be chosen by him to be part of his excellent team which not only treats patients with cardiac diseases but increases quality of life by focusing on prevention of cardiac disease with more wellness guided care and teaching.

Ron relocated to Orange City in 2022, with his wife, family and dogs. In his free time, he loves to explore his new hometown and surrounding areas. He loves the ocean, especially boating and fishing, and tries to get out on the water as often as he can.
