About Erika

My name is Erika and I have been an LVN for a little under 5 years. I have experience working in both a skilled nursing setting and doing home health. I am a very energetic and compassionate nurse, and do everything with in power to assure my patients receive the best possible care. Growing up, I always knew I wanted to a nurse, and in 2015 I was able to complete my first step. I completed the LVN program at Kaplan College of Sacramento, and 2 years later obtained an Associates of Science in Vocational Nursing. I am only steps away from obtain my RN license.
