Nicole has served as an advanced practice provider (APP) in the Emergency Department (ED) at CHOP for the past 15 years. In addition to her clinical role in the ED, Nicole served as orientation coordinator and mentor for new APP’s in the ED, focused on quality improvement work to support the daily functions of the ED APP’s, and used her information systems expertise to contribute to many initiatives and projects in the ED. She has been involved with standardizing and improving care delivered to children in urgent and emergent situations on a regional and national scale by founding the Pediatric Emergency Care Special Interest Group within NAPNAP.
Nicole will have APP responsibility for The Possibilities Project, which aims to reimagine care delivery in order to improve the patient and provider experience of pediatric primary care and improve child health outcomes. Nicole will be working with the team to update the model of care to create more flexibility in how primary care is delivered, as well implement innovative programs that take advantage of that flexibility to improve outcomes.

The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
