Erica Plaisted

Hello!  My name is Erica Plaisted and I am your Galileo STEM Academy School Nurse.  I graduated from Boise State University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.  Prior to coming the the West Ada School District I worked as a RN in the emergency department at Saint Alphonsus.  I grew up in Caldwell, Idaho and have been married for 20 years.  My husband and I have 3 beautiful daughters who attend school in the West Ada District.  My children keep me busy with club basketball and swimming.  Besides cheering my children on at their sporting events, my most favorite thing to do is travel.  I love seeing the beauty of the world and emerse myself in new envirnoments and cultures.


I look forward to being able to care for child and keeping them healthy and safe at school.  I not only want to be an adovacte for your child, but also teach them how to be an advocate for themselves.  I am here to meet the needs of your child whether it be for a scraped knee or a chronic condition that requires an individualized health plan.  If you have any questions, concerns or would just like to chat with me about your child please contact me at plaisted.erica@westada.org or call 208-350-4105.
