Laura Gordon is a Family Nurse Practitioner. She started her career in the engineering field as a drafter. She changed career to nursing after a family member became very ill. She graduated from nursing school in 2006 and became a hospital nurse. She started in a medical unit, transferred to intensive care, and then became a Special Procedure nurse. As a special procedure nurse, she assisted with dialysis catheter placement, colonoscopies, EGDs, feeding tube placement, and tracheostomies. She eventually became a PICC line nurse. Nurse Gordon went back to school and graduated in 2015 with her Master’s Degree in nursing.
Philosophy of Care
I chose to be a nurse practitioner as my profession because it was a calling to help those in need. My mission is to provide nonjudgmental care to those in need regardless of race, spiritual beliefs, lifestyle choices, financial status, or disability. My goals for my patients are to address and remove the underlying cause of illness, rather than to just improve the presenting symptoms. I do this by addressing underlying problems that can slow down the healing process and create a plan to remove these obstacles to promote healing. My patients are individuals that require and deserve individualized attention and care.
