Essentia Health Welcomes Nurse Practitioner Laura Holt

Laura Holt, Mobile Medicine (long-term care)

Nurse Practitioner Laura Holt has joined the Elder Care Department at the Essentia Health-Duluth Clinic in Duluth, Minnesota.

Born and raised in Duluth, Holt has spent the past 11 years working at Ecumen Lakeshore in various capacities, including the last five years as a registered nurse. “Throughout my time at Lakeshore, I saw how the Elder Care program essentially brings the clinic to the patient, and I’ve been impressed by the quality of care provided,” she explains.

Holt earned a doctorate degree in nursing from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota. She is certified as an adult/gerontology nurse practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

“I’ve always enjoyed working with the geriatric population, and I think that comes from my experiences with my grandparents,” says Holt. “My grandfather suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease, and the caring and compassionate care that he received made a big impact on me. The experience made me want to make a difference not only for geriatric patients, but their families as well.”
