About Nurse Nikki:
Nurse Nikki LLC
My mission is to provide genuine, evidence-based care, information and guidance to help you provide a safe and healthy environment for your baby, yourself and your entire family.
A New Orleans transplant by way of Dallas, I have a Bachelor’s in Sociology from Northwestern University Evanston, a Bachelor’s in Nursing from Loyola University Chicago and a Master’s in Nursing from LSU. In 2012, I started my career as a certified family nurse practitioner. I am not your traditional medical provider. I strive to provide holistic yet evidence-based care that is catered to my client’s physical, mental and emotional needs.
My nursing career includes work in pediatric intensive care, elementary and high schools and outpatient sexual health, family and OB clinics. My background as a pediatric nurse and women’s health advocate motivated me to provide services that would improve birth and family health outcomes in New Orleans.
