Kristen E. Ethridge, NP


Kristen began working at UCLA in 1986 as a bedside nurse in the CTICU. It was combined pediatric and adult unit then, and was always interesting to go between those populations. She graduated from UCLA’s Pediatric Nurse Program in 1997. She returned to UCLA in 2012, with extra time devoted to teaching, single ventricle and high acuity patients.
