Alexandria Pietrafesa, MSN, CRNP, first attended Arcadia University where she received her Bachelor of Arts-Biology and subsequently attended Thomas Jefferson University where she received her Bachelor of Nursing and Master of Nursing degrees.
Alexandria brings a wealth of experience from her work here in the Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) as a bedside nurse since 2015. During her time in the CCU, she participated in many committees, became a primary preceptor for new hires and was the clinical resource nurse for the Ventricular Assist Devices. Her passion for caring for children and their families with congenital heart disease and acquired heart disease was evidenced by Alexandria partnering with other unit leaders to be a champion to prevent harm to our patients. She became a qualified observer for central line dressing changes, cap changes and lab draws to reduce and prevent CLABSI’s.
Alexandria’s clinical experience through her Master’s program provided not only primary care experience but also how to conduct a thorough preoperative anesthesia assessment for children undergoing a procedure or surgery.

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
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.
