Lauren Wurster is the lovely Family Nurse Practitioner here at McLean Dermatology. If you haven’t had the chance to meet her yet, let us tell you a little about her!
Lauren grew up in Syracuse, NY always knowing she wanted to get into the medical field. She always had a passion for Math, science, and being around people. She truly enjoys helping people, and to this day cannot imagine being in a different field. She completed her undergrad at Cornell University studying human development with a focus on adolescence. It was during her time at Cornell that she realized she wanted a career in nursing, so from Cornell she went on to the University of Virginia to get her Masters in Nursing. Shortly after completing her Masters Lauren decided to make the permanent move to DC where she worked as a labor and delivery RN at Georgetown University and completed her F.N.P degree.
After all of Lauren’s hard work her passion for medicine hasn’t faded but grown. She loves her job and loves Dermatology! Practicing Dermatology has given her the chance to see patients of all ages and backgrounds. What she loves most about her job is that no two days or appointments are ever the same, which makes everyday challenging and fun for her at the same time. She describes her job as gratifying because she gets to see the direct result of treatment and the impact it has on the patient, whether it’s a rash or acne! The nursing side of her also loves the prevention aspect of dermatology. She loves educating patients about their health, and skin cancer prevention is so important and very rewarding.
Taking care of patients is Lauren’s number one priority, but she still takes time to pay attention to her own skin as well. Her favorite two products to recommend and use daily are IS Clinical Pro Heal and Active serums. She uses Pro Heal in the morning and Active Serumat night, and both have improved the quality and texture of her skin. Her favorite aesthetic services we offer are Dermaplaning and the Fire and Ice chemical peel. She swears your skin looks absolutely amazing and radiant afterwards!
