Debra Sandt, MSN, CPNP, received her Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Utah in 2002. Prior to that, she practiced as a pediatric RN for 20 years. She began her career in pediatric nursing at Children’s Hospital of Orange County in southern California working on an infant and toddler unit. In 1994, she moved to Salt Lake City and worked at Primary Children’s Medical Center for nine years. She worked in several areas there including outpatient pediatric gastroenterology, inpatient oncology and neuroscience/trauma. While completing her Pediatric Nurse Practitioner/Master’s Degree, she enjoyed working in general pediatric practice, especially at the 4th Street Clinic where she treated homeless children and adolescents with Dr. Joan Sheetz as her mentor.
Debbie joined the Division of Pediatric Nephrology in 2003. She manages children and adolescents with a variety of renal conditions such as chronic kidney disease, nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, kidney stones, hypertension and tubular disorders.
One of the things Debbie enjoys most about her job is getting to know her patients and families over the years and watching them grow and develop. She finds it extremely rewarding to be able to serve as a support for families as they are adapting to chronic disease.

The nursing student, whose name I cannot remember, did an excellent job of communicating with my son. He told us he was "blown away" by her comparing the video game to his eating. Thank you so much for that, it is making a difference.UofU Patient November 12, 2013
I didn't feel the NP was very compassionate or caring. I have had a lot of experiences with medical providers and I don't remember ever feeling this disrespected before.UofU Patient July 08, 2013

Dr Sherbotie and Debra Sandt both were very helpful. They were willing to answer our questions and helped our son feel at ease with the appointment by taking a little time to visit with him.UofU Patient February 26, 2013

Debra Sandt and Dr. Matthew Grinsell have been caring for my daughter for almost 4 years now. When we go to see them every 6 months for a check-up, it's like meeting with an extension of our family. Debbie is so caring and supportive. She's really helped my daughter understand her condition and motivate her to do better- whether thats in taking her meds or getting better grades in school. Dr. Grinsell is knowledgable and always makes Abby feel special. She leaves feeling like a rock star. I know that Abby's continued improvement and quality of life result from the expert care she's received from Debra Sandt and Dr. Matthew Grinsell in the Nephrology clinic.UofU Patient November 26, 2012
