I have been in health care for more than 20 years. I was first enrolled in a CNA course in high school, then progressed to LVN, ADN, BSN, PHN, family nurse practitioner (FNP), and am now a board certified physician assistant (PA-C).

I have 9 associate's degrees (AA/AS), a BSN, 2 master's degrees: Master of Medical Science and Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) in Internal Medicine. I am now working on a 3rd master's degree in nursing (MSN) informatics as well as a 1 year wound program from Emory University.

These are some of the schools that I've graduated from:
I graduated from University of San Francisco for my BSN and PHN.
Stanford School of Medicine for my Family Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant.
Master in Medical Science from St. Francis University.
Master in Physician Assistant Studies in Internal Medicine from Nebraska School of Medicine.

I love medical science and I love to teach. I have taught at local colleges and served as clinical preceptors to RN, NP, PA and Stanford Medical Students.

I am an active clinician, and have wide range of experience from ICU, to ED and was a hospitalist...Yes, I evaluate, admit patients, prescribe, perform minor surgeries, and have served as surgical assistant to surgeons.

I offer free tweets on Twitter daily hoping to make our nursing community stronger by offering pearls of nursing.

I don't take a lot of students because I do have a full-time job. However, I do enjoy tutoring and provided that 1-to-1 attention to struggling students.

If you are struggling in nursing school or trying to pass the NCLEX, just remember: Don't give up, the beginning is always the hardest!

I have passed both national licensure of NCLEX-PN, and NCLEX-RN in order to work as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN), and a registered nurse (RN). I have retired my LVN license since I have become a registered nurse and a family nurse practitioner. A higher/next level of nursing hierarchy.


I am a triple licensed RN, FNP, and a board certified physician assistant. I have gone though pharmacology classes in LVN training, in ADN training, BSN training, and FNP and PA school. I would tally a total of near 15 units all together. Lastly, I am licensed as a mid-level provider to assess, evaluate and prescribe medications to treat medical conditions.

Great tutor! — I was in nursing school studying acid/base balance when I worked with Ellen. Ellen was able to explain a very complex process in one tutoring session. She was much more knowledgeable and helpful to me than were my professors. I had to quit nursing school but plan to return next fall and I will definitely solicit help from Ellen again. Ellen clearly loves teaching and directs her students to th ...
