Rising Star

Laura Morgan

After completing a degree in Anthropology, Laura Morgan attended Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) and graduated as an RPN in 2015. Since her graduation, she has worked as a staff nurse at Vista House in Vancouver providing specialised tertiary level treatment for adults across B.C. with severe and complex eating disorders.

Laura is a huge asset to the team and possesses excellent communication skills, connects therapeutically with clients and their families and is valued for her contributions to the interdisciplinary team. Her attention to detail and documentation is thorough and she applies professional nursing principles and knowledge along with a genuine respect for the individuality of each patient. Laura consistently manages to balance the provision of compassionate client-centred care with professionalism and understanding of good boundaries, particularly important with the population she provides care for.

Though still young in years, Laura is mature, self-motivated and able to assume responsibility for the unit when required. Her knowledge base on medications and nursing theory is sound and she is always open to learning, while also providing support to her co-workers. She remains calm under pressure and brings a gentle humour and personal warmth to all her interactions in the work place. It is this sense of natural calm leadership that has and will continue to take Laura far in the often highly stressful and complex field of mental health.

Recently Laura was accepted to a Master’s program at the University of British Columbia in Public Health with a special interest in international women’s health. Even moving into new ventures, Laura will always remain committed to front-line mental health care.
