Erica Nicoletti

Erica Nicoletti is a recently retired Navy Nurse, busy mom, and a passionate nurse educator who is teaching new nursing students skills and sharing her love for pediatric patient care.

Erica holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Villanova University where she participated in Naval ROTC.  Her 20-year career in the Navy was unconventional.  She began as a Naval Aviator stationed in Coronado, California where she deployed in support of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM and counterdrug operations in South America.  After completion of her aviation commitment, Erica desired to pursue a career in medicine where she had maximum patient interaction.  She returned to school to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia through the Navy Nurse Candidate Program. As a Navy Nurse, Erica held several positions to include Staff Nurse, Division Officer, and Department Head, remaining primarily in pediatrics. Her favorite part of being a Navy Nurse was mentoring junior nurses and hospital corpsman.

Erica resides in Virginia Beach, Virginia with her husband, a retired Naval Aviator as well, her two boys, and her yellow Labrador retriever.  In her spare time she enjoys swimming, working out, going to the beach, making military award paddles, and being a mom-taxi for her kids busy lives.
