Greg Peistrup, MSN, ENP-C, FNP-C, an esteemed and beloved Las Vegas emergency nurse practitioner, mentor, colleague, and friend, died on September 17, 2020, twelve days after testing positive for COVID-19. At the time of his passing, Greg worked for Superior Emergency Physicians at North Vista Hospital. Greg has been a cornerstone in the Las Vegas nursing and health care community for decades, having worked at nearly every hospital in the city.
