It’s National Nursing Week and Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC) is highlighting a few of our nurses and their achievements. Meet Erika Bishop, Nurse Practitioner – Primary Health Care (NP-PHC) at our Hospital.
After graduating in 2014 from Lakehead University, Erika Bishop started her career at TBRHSC working as a cardiac nurse. In 2017, she moved over to the hemodialysis unit and continues working there in a casual position.
Before March 2020, she had applied for graduate studies and ended up spending the majority of the COVID-19 pandemic working on her Master of Nursing – Primary Care Nurse Practitioner degree from Queen’s University, which she obtained in July 2022. She has since joined TBRHSC’s Nurse Led Outreach team as a Nurse Practitioner working in long-term care, assisted living and retirement homes across Thunder Bay with the goal of reducing emergency room visits.
