At the heart of Frontier Nursing University is a talented and diverse community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, Couriers and preceptors. Spotlight blogs feature members of our FNU community that are focused on the mission of educating nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners to deliver quality health care to underserved and rural populations.
Frontier Nursing University (FNU) preceptor Erin Crone, FNP, from Pullman & Ariza Pediatrics of Washington, D.C., was honored as FNU’s “Featured Preceptor” for the fall term. Erin was nominated by former student Marzi Viverette, FNP class 109, and FNU faculty member, Dr. Amy Nassar.
“Erin was an amazing preceptor,” said Marzi. “She was a patient teacher who always took the time to answer my questions and help guide me during my pediatric clinicals.”
Erin’s love of teaching students one-on-one led her to begin precepting nurse practitioner students in January 2012. Precepting gives Erin the ability to provide a comprehensive learning experience in pediatrics. According to Dr. Nassar, Erin’s usage of evidence-based care helps FNU students learn how to treat illnesses and conditions according to guidelines.
Erin has worked in pediatric primary care with Pullman & Ariza Pediatrics since she graduated from Georgetown University School of Nursing and Health Studies almost seven years ago. Her clinic serves a wide range of ethnicities and different family structures. For more information on Erin’s practice, click here.
Erin will receive a Starbucks gift card as a small token of our appreciation for her being a great preceptor. Thanks for your investment in our FNU students, Erin!
