Tina Canner-Peterson, APRN, CNRN, RNFA

Tina likes a challenge. She began her nursing career with ten years in intensive care where she discovered her affinity for difficult, challenging cases, the neuro cases in particular.

As a Sierra Neurosurgery Group nurse, Tina is able to offer patients continuity of care seeing them pre- and post-op. She constantly strives to increase her patient’s comfort by both managing their pain and their uncertainty, taking the time to explain procedures and answer their questions.
