Lauren Nichols, RN, MSN, FNP-C, joined the Treehouse Pediatrics team as a nurse practitioner in November of 2020. Lauren is originally from Frankfort, Kentucky and moved to the Austin-area with her family in 2000. She received her BSN from Texas State University in 2013, and obtained her MSN from the University of Texas at Arlington and is nationally certified through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

Lauren began her nursing career at St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center where she worked for 7.5 years as an emergency room/trauma nurse. During this time, she cared for patient’s across the lifespan and discovered her love for pediatrics.
