Meet Yssa Encinas, Registered Nurse & Educator

Yssa Encinas has been a nurse at Canyon Vista Medical Center since 2003, where she started in the Women & Children’s Services department and found her calling. She pursued nursing school with one goal in mind, “I wanted to be able to care for people and be involved in making things better overall. I began working in the Women & Children’s Services unit from the very beginning and fell in love with it. It is challenging and rewarding to be a part of this department.”

What does Yssa love most about her job? “I enjoy being a nurse because I like to serve my community. I get to see people that I have known for a long time and meet new people every day. I am able to participate in a special time in their lives. I have developed a great career at CVMC. This facility has helped me grow into the nurse that I am today.”
