Welcome Laura Orange, ACNP04-Sep-2020
Please welcome Laura Orange, ACNP, to PDH! Laura is joining the RHC’s excellent team of physicians and providers and will begin seeing patients soon. Before pursuing a career in nursing, Laura previously worked as dental assistant in the PDH dental clinic. Here’s a little more information about Laura:
Hi 👋🏼 I’m Laura Orange and I’m so excited to work with PDH as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. I’m originally from Northern California and completed my undergrad in Kinesiology at Sacramento State. I then pursued my passion for nursing at Creighton University and enjoyed seven years of inpatient surgery and labor and delivery care. After completing my AGACNP program at the University of Nevada, Reno three years ago, I began working with Dr Peter Lim in Gynecology Oncology. I have thrived on the diverse care of patients in clinic, inpatient rounding, chemotherapy and assisting in surgery. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to learn and grow at PDH so that my family can come home to the mountains.
A little fun background about me- I’m married to a 3rd generation Plumas county family and we’re so thankful to raise our two kids (age 6 and 3) there as well. I have a goal to run a half marathon in each US state and have completed 6 states so far. (So any recommendations on local running trails would be greatly appreciated!) I love traveling the world, being silly to make people smile, and of course anything outdoors!
