Tampa nurse practitioner advocates for the next generation of nurses

TAMPA, Fla. — Nurse practitioner Erika Hall of Premiere Body & Wellness was on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19.

She is now building her own practice to improve wellness in her community and create a safer work environment for other nursing professionals.

Hall has been working as a nurse for 19 years, first as a traveling Nurse and now a nurse practitioner.

She also works third shift three days out of the week at a local hospital.

“Nursing has been the No. 1 trusted profession for 20 years in a row,” Hall said. “However, we are underpaid, under appreciated, we work in situations where we are stretched beyond our capacity.”
