Lauren Michelle Horton

Registered Nurse-BSN


In addition to clinical rotations at AnMed Health Medical Center and Greenville Health System, I had the invaluable opportunity to be a part of the Surgeons for Sight medical team to the Dominican Republic.  My internship with USC Sports Medicine during my last year at the University of South Carolina provided both clinical assistance and Operating Room observation, and I have been fortunate to have been able to shadow and work with several physician assistants in Greenville, South Carolina whose specialties include Cardiology, Emergency Room, and Internal Medicine.  My academic courses and experiences working with exceptional physicians and registered nurses, both in the hospital and in the field, have prepared me clinically and professionally for my first position as a registered nurse following my graduation.  I also believe that my organizational, critical thinking, and time management skills, as well as my commitment to providing excellent medical care, will be an asset to your health care team.
