Erin Carr, FNP-BC

Board Certified - Family Practice 

South University Family Nurse Practitioner, MSN

Indiana University Kokomo, Bachelor of Nursing


Family Practice, Psychoanalytical Therapies, Reiki, Smoking Cessation Hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Life Coaching, REBT Practitioner, and Advanced Certified Telemedicine/Telehealth Professional

Erin Started out as a trauma ER nurse with a dream of being able to help make a difference in someone's life. As an ER nurse, she learned the importance of treating patients holistically, and seeing firsthand that walking into each patient's room with a smile and providing the patient her undivided attention allowed the patients to have a trusting experience. As a provider, Erin moved to practice at a level 1 trauma center as a nocturnist and would help admit and maintain care of patients that were staying in the hospital. Erin's love for the ER continued as she took a position at an urgent care clinic, which helped her transition into running a clinic autonomously as a single provider. This clinic was run as an urgent care, occupational health, and family medicine clinic that saw anywhere from 20 - 30 patients a day. 

Erin's love for telemedicine/telehealth lead her to joining Artius, along with the care of using the holistic approach and helping patients maintain their health. Erin is a mom of two and married to her husband Kyle. When Erin is not working, she enjoys traveling with and spending time with her family, hiking, being outside, baking/cooking, and exploring new things.
