Crystal Uribe MSN, FNP-C, RN, CEN

Crystal is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Board Certified Emergency Nurse, Educator, Consultant, Social Nurse Activist, and Mentor.

Crystal began her nursing career in the Emergency Department at MetroSouth Hospital on the South Side of Chicago and obtained her Board Certification for Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN) in 2016.

 During her time in the Emergency Department, Crystal remained a cultivated leader in the acute management for strokes. After moving from Chicago to California, Crystal accepted a position at Stanford Medical Center’s Radiology Department, where she served as a representative on Stanford’s Quality Improvement Team, which focused on workflow improvements and patient safety.

Crystal’s desire to make a positive impact on the world lead to the creation of Intravenous Queen and Crystal’s mission came to life – to globally impact patient outcomes through IV education on peripheral vascular access. And after cultivating a strong social community of 150,000+ nurses and healthcare workers from all over the world, Crystal decided it was time to leave her full time position at Stanford Medical Center.

Crystal’s company has been focused on developing highly educational and informative courses for nurses. Proudly, Intravenous Queen is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission (ANCC). In addition, Intravenous Queen’s IV workshops are approved for continuing education by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). The ANCC and AANP are two highly respected, accrediting bodies that Crystal and nurses nationwide look to for accredited continuing education.

Crystal uses her public platform to promote advocacy, share knowledge, and provide education for nurses and healthcare professionals. Crystal’s company provides educational and consulting services to private medical practices, hospital systems, and healthcare professionals throughout the world on policies and procedures, standardized patient-care workflows, and systemic management development for private medical management companies.
