Iryne Zziwa-Kabenge, MSN, CRNP, AAHIVS, is an experienced Adult and Geriatric Nurse Practitioner and HIV Specialist at Zziwa Adult Clinical Practice in Owings Mills, Maryland.
Iryne is truly exceptional when it comes to supporting those who have human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). She also offers in-home primary care and internal medicine diagnosis and treatment to patients in Greater Baltimore.
She received her Bachelor in Nursing from the University of Maryland and completed her advanced practice education at Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, where she trained as an Adult Nurse Practitioner.
Iryne is the founding owner of Zziwa Adult Clinical Practice, also referred to as Z-Adult Clinical Practice. She is also certified as an HIV specialist with the American Academy of HIV Medicine.
A nurse since 1997 and a nurse practitioner since 2008, Iryne has over 20 years of nursing experience in a variety of areas, including acute care, long-term care, and home care. Her work in home care profoundly transformed her career and inspired her to start her own practice.
In-home care, Iryne recognized the medical needs of older adults who desired to continue living independently and for families who wished to continue providing care for their loved ones in their homes but were facing difficulties related to accessing adequate medical care.
Although a large proportion of this population is insured, physically accessing a medical provider remains challenging. This stems from barriers such as poorly managed chronic medical conditions, mental health issues, physical disabilities, and unfavorable medical provider office hours.
This, unfortunately, has translated into higher costs for our medical system as this population fails to find a way out of the Home to the ER to Hospitalization revolving door. However, many conditions are manageable and modifiable if routine medical care were available. Iryne seeks to meet this need and serve patients as best as possible. To provide care — where you are.
