RN, Infection Preventionist, Employee Health Nurse
Teton Valley Health
I am Nikki Ripplinger, Registered Nurse, Infection Preventionist and Employee Health Nurse at Teton Valley Health in Driggs, Idaho. I have been a Registered Nurse for 22 years. Except for 1 year of that time, I have worked at our critical-access, 13-bed hospital in our small, rural town as a medical/surgical nurse. We provide care to patients in our Emergency Department, Surgical Suite or Medical Floor with a variety of diagnosis. Four years ago, I was asked to take the position of Infection Preventionist and Employee Health Nurse. My learning curve has gone back up to the time of my nursing student days. I have enjoyed learning about infection prevention and all the areas in which an IP can improve patient outcomes.
