Meet Ying, Nurse Practitioner in Oroville.

The clinic is lucky to welcome Ying Lo-Vang, Nurse Practitioner, to the Oroville Clinic. Ying, a long-time resident of Oroville, attended Chico State where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. After graduating, she worked at Feather River Hospital, first as a medical/surgical nurse and then as an obstetrical nurse. She also spent a few years working with Oroville Hospital’s OB department. With a hunger for more education and opportunity, Ying returned to school, earning her Masters of Science in Nursing from Sonoma State. She is certified as a nurse practitioner through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

Ying was a young mother herself and has a vested interest in women’s health, especially birth control, family planning and pre-natal care. According to Ying, it’s important for sexually active women of all ages to have accessible birth control so they can have control over their family planning needs. Her favorite part of the job is interacting with clients. Ying, a mother of five ranging in age from five to 22, enjoys spending time with her family. With a large extended family, there’s always something happening!


The health department operates two public health clinics  that offer immunizations, travel shots, family planning, STD testing and treatment, health exams, and free condoms.
