Cornerstone VNA welcomes the newest medical provider to their Palliative Care program, Alexa Gordon MSN, FNP-BC, APRN, Nurse Practitioner.
Alexa received her degree in nursing from Simmons College in 2006 and graduated as Nurse Practitioner in 2011. According to Alexa, “I went to nursing school because I wanted to help people and improve their quality of life.” Alexa worked as an RN at Frisbie Memorial Hospital (FMH) on the coronary care unit for 5 years before returning to school to obtain her master’s degree. She then worked for 3 years in Massachusetts before returning to FMH in the geriatric psychiatry department. Alexa adds, “I came to Cornerstone VNA to focus on person-centered care, and to be able to work with patients in their own environments [home], and help them define and meet their goals of care.”
Julie Reynolds, RN, MS, President/CEO adds, “We are very excited to have Alexa join our growing team of Palliative Care specialists. Her experience in cardiology and geriatrics will enhance our ability to manage our aging population and their healthcare needs at home.”
“We are thrilled to announce that Alexa has joined our Palliative Care Program. Alexa brings with her years of experience that will benefit our patients and their family members in our community.”
