Galena DaPra, FNP

Chino Valley

“I love what I am and do because every day I have the opportunity to positively impact the lives of my patients and families.”

About Me

I started my career as a Pharmacy Technician and decided to go back to school and became an LVN. Once I completed my LVN and worked in a SNF for one year, I decided to go back to school and become a Registered Nurse. I worked in Oncology for two years and again decided to go back to school to become a Nurse Practitioner. I wanted to become a FNP to have more of an impact on my patients.

Education and Training

I completed my LVN and RN at College of the Desert in Palm Springs California and my FNP-BC with Walden University in MN which I completed 6 years ago

Professional Certifications

I currently hold FNP-BC

Professional Experience

I worked as an LVN for years in Palm Desert at a SNF and when I got my RN I worked in Oncology at Loma Linda University in California for 8 years. Since getting my FNP I worked in Infectious Disease for 5 years, then transitioned to Family practice one year ago
