Valerie Shin, MSN, RN, AGACNP-BC
Hepatology Nurse Practitioner

Valerie received her BSN degree from New York University in 2012. After she became a registered nurse, she honed her nursing experience through the VA Healthcare System as a medical-surgical nurse and the Cleveland Clinic as a cardiology nurse. Valerie advanced her nursing career by completing her MSN degree at UCLA, and her journey led her to the UCLA Pfleger Liver Institute where she has been a nurse practitioner since 2018 specializing in hepatology. Currently, she provides care to patients with a variety of liver problems including liver cirrhosis, viral hepatitis, fatty liver, drug-induced liver injury, autoimmune hepatitis, biliary liver disease, alcohol-related liver disease, and hepatocellular carcinoma as well as post-liver transplant management. Valerie also enjoys educating her nursing students in her clinic and was given the opportunity to lecture about liver cirrhosis and the management of its complications at UCLA School of Nursing in 2021.
