About M. Susan Butler Ching, MSN, CPNP

M. Susan Butler Ching, MSN, CPNP, is a certified acute care nurse practitioner at Phoenix Children's specializing in acute and chronic pain. Susan listens to her patients' and their families' concerns to develop the best plan and care to meet their unique needs.

During a trip to Honduras, Susan, who has always enjoyed caring for others, realized she could help people near and far by becoming a nurse practitioner. The adventurous and resilient nature of children drew her to a career in pediatric care. "I enjoy watching patients succeed, learn, grow and enjoy life to the fullest," Susan says.

An "outstanding reputation locally and nationally," along with a focus on patient-centered care, led Susan to Phoenix Children's.
