Lauren E. Stegemann, APRN-CNS, is an advanced practice provider in Oklahoma Heart Institute’s cardiac interventional unit. The Tulsa native has worked at OHI since 2010, when she completed nursing school. She started in the cardiac catheterization lab, and then moved into her current role in the interventional unit in 2017 after receiving her advanced practice degree.
“I always enjoyed the sciences, and I was exposed to interventional cardiology growing up, so my current position was a natural outcome of that.” Stegemann said.
Working with hospitalized patients and outpatients is appealing to Stegemann, enabling her to treat and educate patients with a variety of conditions at OHI.
“I enjoy being able to work in both an inpatient and outpatient setting; to be able to take care of those who are acutely ill and get them well enough to go home and then also be able to work on preventative care in the outpatient setting,” said Stegemann. “I enjoy being able to educate patients on their condition in both settings.”
In her spare time, Stegemann enjoys spending time with her kids, gardening and cooking.
