About Dana Blocker, APRN

Dana Blocker, APRN, AGACNP-BC, is a native of West Palm Beach, Fl. She began her studies at the University of Central Florida, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Science. Her medical journey began as a Radiologic Technologist that was trained as a cardiovascular scrub tech. She spent over 15 years working side by side with Interventional Cardiologists scrubbing both cardiovascular and peripheral vascular procedures. Her love and passion for cardiovascular and peripheral vascular led her to further her education. Dana continued her studies by pursuing a degree in nursing. Obtaining this degree allowed her to be more of an integral part of her patient’s care. Her nursing career experience includes cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, and wound care.

Although Dana loved being a Registered Nurse, she knew her knowledge and skills could greatly benefit her patients as a Nurse Practitioner. Her time at Nova Southeastern University yielded a Master of Science in Nursing as an acute care nurse practitioner. She also won the Chancellor’s Award and graduated Magna Cum Laude.

Her knowledge and well-rounded education have given her the ability to be a significant part of the team within the procedural lab. She is educated and trained to work in all areas of a procedural lab, as well as pre, intra, and post-care.

She maintains her Registered Nursing, Radiologic Technologist, and Nurse Practitioner licenses in the State of Florida and is a board-certified Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialist (RCIS).
