Laura Horn, ARNP NP-C has been a registered nurse for over 36 years. She has worked in many different areas in nursing including critical care, oncology, various surgery settings, medical offices and clinical informatics. Laura has worked as a patient care nurse and nursing supervisor. She was a nurse manager for the third busiest hospital in the Houston area.
Having spent many long years in the allopathic “traditional” system of medicine and seeing so many unresolved cases, Laura shares Dr. Horn’s belief in Optimal Health, Natural Choices and Natural Medicine. To see the system fail in so many places, there had to be something more. Instead of trying to treat the symptoms, what happened to finding out the cause and working in such a way to help the body heal?
Her desire to help patients improve their health and look at a more holistic approach to patient care, Laura returned to school and is now a certified adult primary care nurse practitioner. A nurse practitioner plays an important role in helping patients with education, prevention of illness, and encouraging wellness. Nurse practitioners use less drugs than medical doctors and provide high-quality cost-effective personalized healthcare by treating the "whole" person. "I think of my role as a functional provider like an investigator...what is the cause. I find it is rarely one thing going on. I love the challenge, but most importantly, it is helping my patients get better."
Some of the services she provides include:
lab work, x-rays, and other diagnostic tests
referrals to specialists as indicated
gynecological exams (including pap smears)
suturing minor cuts
Laura also provides bio-identical hormone therapy, IV nutrition, and advanced laboratory testing of hormones, thyroid, gastrointestinal, and neurotransmitter areas.
Laura graduated from Crystal River High School, and obtained her Registered Nursing degree from the College of Central Florida. She received her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Regis University graduating Summa Cum Laude, and received her Masters in Nursing from South University graduating with High Honors. Laura is a life-long learner, as is Dr. Horn, and is continuously expanding her knowledge in courses to help improve patient outcomes.
